Full description
After a short explanation, you and your pilot will take off from a mountain slope under a canopy that resembles a parachute. Once inflated overhead, you will take just a few steps or a short run to take off from the gentle slope, the wind will catch the canopy and you will be airborne. In the air, complete control over direction and speed gives your pilot the freedom to soar ridges, rise on warm currents of air and cover distance. The tour providers have a proven safety record from day one, a credit to company procedures. Each season starts with brand new equipment and well-maintained throughout the year. All pilots are internationally recognized Tandem Flight Instructors. Each passenger is briefed and issued with a helmet. All pilots carry complete reserve and communication systems and weather conditions are carefully assessed before you are taken up and again on take off. You will be assisted by the crew on both take off and landing. Get ready to fulfill man's oldest dream of free flying. Now, you can experience the joy of personal, foot-launched flight in its purest form - on a paraglider. You do not need to have any experience at all to come tandem paragliding. Thousands of tandem paragliding flights have been done with children as young as 10-years-old and adults as old as 87-years-old. After a short briefing, you will merely run a few steps and the rest will be in the hands of your fully qualified pilot. Just sit back and enjoy your flight. Bookings are essential, do not leave it until your last day as the activity is dependent on the weather conditions.

It was truly amazing. Even thou being a person that is afraid of heights, the take off is so smooth you don’t even feel the fear of being so high up. The thrill is unexplainable just truly awesome. The view you get from the sky is also something to experience. Loved every minute of it just wished it could be a bit longer than 15mins. Something you really need to try out

Excellent! 5 Star Service. I loved my time flying over Cape Town. From the booking process to the flight itself. Skywings made sure I was kept up to date with all the booking processes and let me know the flight was going ahead 24hrs before. There instructions were great and the entire experience was brilliant. I can't recommend this activity enough.

The weather really showed us who’s boss. You must really be patient and be greatful if you want to paraglide, the weather can change in less than 5 minutes, its better to not have any set commitments for the day and just wait for theee perfect weather. We did it 3 days later than we had booked and on the day we were supposed to leave capetown the weather was favourable, we rushed there and the wind was now not enough, we waited and an hour later we paraglided and it was amazing, and we missed our flight but it was worth it. Mike communicated throughout and that made everything easy
