In Cape Town, we paraglide mainly from Lion's Head and Signal Hill. The paragliding launch site we use depends on the wind direction at the time. Sometimes we start flying from Signal Hill and then move across to Lion's Head as the wind changes throughout the day.
Tandem paragliding flights vary in duration and it is not possible for us to guarantee a specific flight time due to the changeable nature of the wind and general weather conditions in Cape Town. We only fly in conditions that allow us to launch and land safely. Our tandem paragliding flight instructors (TFIs) are all highly experienced and love to fly. They will always make every effort to give you the longest (up to 30 minutes) and most enjoyable flight possible. In general flights in Cape Town can be anything from about 5-30 minutes in duration.
Table Mountain National Parks (TMNP) do not allow instructional tandem paragliding flights from Table Mountain, although a few of our passengers have been lucky enough to fly across there with us when weather conditions have allowed.
The company was started by Manu Wegmershaus in 2007 shortly after moving to Cape Town in 2005.
All our Tandem Flight Instructors (TFIs) are highly experienced and fully certified by the South African Association of Paragliding (SAHPA). Please see our pilot profiles below.
We offer instructional, introductory tandem flights for anyone who would like to experience paragliding.
We take people of all ages and abilities.
We can fly people with disabilities too!
We use the amazing GoPro cameras to capture insane video and photos of your tandem paragliding flight – all the action, all the emotion! Ask your pilot.The inflight photos and video are an optional extra. You can view them after the flight without any obligation to buy them. If you do want to take them (most people do), we give them to you in a very convenient format – a 4GB micro SD card with an adapter and a plastic housing – very modern!
