Ride side-by-side with your instructor and feel the exhilaration, head rush, and incredible sensation of free-fall flying. End your day on a high as you experience a once-in-a-lifetime paragliding ride that you won't forget. Get hooked on the adrenaline high and see views of Lion's Head, Signal Hill, Camp's Bay, Clifton Beaches, Waterfront, and Robben Island, that you won't forget.

Table Mountain: Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

2. Table Mountain: Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

When you arrive at the meeting point you will be welcomed by a manager and the rest of the team who will check that you have suitable clothing for the flight. You will then be assigned to a pilot and fitted into your harness and helmet. Your pilot will brief you about the takeoff, as this varies depending on the conditions. Sometimes you will need to run a bit before flying, but this is easy and your well-trained and experienced assistants will ensure a smooth takeoff. After the initial buzz of the takeoff, you can settle comfortably into the harness and enjoy the ride. It really is like flying like a bird: come see for yourself. Your crew is world-class, using state of the art equipment and flying a place they know very well. This is the safest form of paragliding you can get. Your local provider’s impeccable safety record over many years of flying speaks for itself.

Absolutely amazing. The views were spectacular and unfortunately, we did not have too many thermals so could not spend maximum time in the air. The "roller-coaster" experience over the ocean before we landed was the highlight. I felt absolutely safe the entire time and even my husband who is scared of height loved the paragliding. JUST DO IT

Great experience with a fantastic view. Great wind conditions and an unforgettable 15 minute flight from Signal Hill via Cape Town to the beach!

There was a short-term change of plan due to wind conditions. Information came a little late but sufficient time. Otherwise great organization.

Wonderful activity, this was the highlight of my trip. Not scary as it may look, the guides are so friendly you’ll definitely love it.

Awesome!!! Wanted to do it 20 more times. It was incredible. The guides were professional and so friendly!! 10/10
