Our core service: Tandem paragliding flights. We also offer inexpensive training, tours and guiding.
Tandem flights offer several choices – Motorised or free flying, affordable standard or longer flights, Lionshead/signalhill or inland. Book with us and experience the “second best thing you will ever do”.
With Tandem Paragliding, you as passenger require no previous knowledge of the sport at all. The pilot will give you instructions shortly before the flight. It’s as easy as a few light steps forward (walking/jogging/sometimes a little run) and we fly! We are disabled friendly, having taken wheelchair-bound paraplegics, blind and deaf folks, children from as young as 3 and upto 93 years old (Stef, the owner’s oldest passenger was just turning 91!) We fly passengers of 20kg up to 135kg in weight, so literally, almost anybody can fly with us! You simply need a good state of health – Good walking shoes – 1 to 2 hours of your time for a standard flight and a half day for a cross country flight.
When we are in the air and paragliding, you are welcome to try – the flight is a cheap introduction into our sport, so, if the conditions are good, the pilot will offer you the toggles and you can experience what it’s like to be the pilot and paraglide. We regularly show our adventurous clients how its done, as then they can even experience how to thermal the glider themselves with just a few minutes of “showing” from our part.
It’s amazing. Simple, easy, safe and for anyone! Those that are nervous get a gentle, slow ride. Those that request it, get aerobatics and a few G’s as we do tricks. We are not macho and are there to give you the flight of your choice.
Our sport is 100% weather dependant and we have gotten really good at judging weather. Our pilots study 6 – 12 different wind and weather websites every morning, thus accurately knowing the weather. Thus there are no time wastes and unnecessary delays. Trust us and we will give you a safe experience to remember forever! If we reschedule or ask you to come a little later, it’s for a good reason.
When booking, please try to fly earlier in your time in our great area, as the Cape often has “difficult” weather and folks always regret it when they call on the day of their visit and the strong SE wind is blowing. Our best advise is to try to paraglide in you’re your 1st days in Cape town and be adaptable with your time. Our whole experience can take as little as 1 hour of your time (and we can be in the air for 30mins of that!). Visiting the Waterfront, Table mountain and museums, cape point and wine tasting are all not nearly as weather dependant as paragliding. We fly 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset (weather dependant). We will arrange a convenient and safe time to fly with you. Sunset tandem flights are a speciality of our company, but optimal flying is generally 9am to 2pm. Sunset flights are scheduled from 5 to 7pm (summer / winter).
At your meeting time, please remember to bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/ trainers / sneakers / takkies – depends on what you call them!) Mountain / Hiking boots are even better and any kind of sandal, Croc, flip flop, flopflip, or anything that flips or flops is NOT good. If you don’t have closed shoes, just tell us this and we have every size of shoe in our vehicle (from little feet to BIGFOOT!) Clothing-wise Shorts if its hot, or Jeans and a t-shirt with a windbreaker are the best attire for the occasion. We include everything that’s needed for the flight (Helmets and all flying equipment) as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments. Naturally, its best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
Payment: Cash on the day – Rands, USD, Euros (we will do a good exchange rate), or Payfast – like paypal on our website or EFT into our bank account before flying. For group bookings and at really busy times, we may ask you for your credit card details only as a booking assurance on our part (for no shows). No fly, no charge is our policy.
Why not purchase a giftvoucher for someone special and then come along and fly too……Sneaky, but clever!
To book, Email email@example.com or better still, call / text + 27 (0)828814724 where we will arrange an appropriate time to fly. Calling on the morning of flight is fine, but upfront booking is better. If coming from out of town, calling us on your arrival in Cape town is also an option. That way we can set a flying time directly. We will simply need your name and Cell phone number (even if an international cell number). If we see that the wind and/or weather are not suitable to fly, then we will call/sms you upto 1 hour before our appointment. We will call you either way on the day of flight to reconfirm, but feel free to call/sms us to reconfirm from your side. We really appreciate that!

Optional: Super cool pictures and videos are made of each client from a very wide-angled “ go-pro ” style camera and these are then viewed upon landing when you can choose if you would like to have this unforgettable memory of your flight. All the pictures and video are on a 1 or 2Gb SD card (which all computers take). You can reuse this complimentary card in the future! Cost: a nominal R200pp, as we want our clients to enjoy endless memories for a small fee.
