Parapax Tandem Paragliding Flights

Cape Town

Activity Description

Enjoy an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight from Signal hill or Lions head. It is by far probably one of the most exciting adventure sports in Cape Town.

No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of the Table Mountain, the City Bowl with no windows to block your view! No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), the experienced team will put you at ease.

Once you are in the air enjoy a birds eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Arrangements

DurationOpen Ended
WhenThis service is available all year round 7 days a week, weather dependent.
WhereWE ALWAYS MEET AT THE VERY END OF SIGNAL HILL ROAD, under the first thorn tree, on the take-off site, at the parking place, (NOT at the Lions head parking lot) when we are flying in Cape town. Meet our friendly Parapax staff (look for our orange/Blue branded t-shirts and red caps). Pictures and videos will be ready as soon as you land for extra R300 cash NB: Please always check with us before you drive up to the mountain to confirm latest weather conditions at least an hour or 2 before, easy and quick way to contact is whatsapp/call us at +27828814724.
WeatherThis service is very weather dependent.
What to WearPlease bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/trainers/sneakers/takkies – whatever you like to call them). Mountain and hiking boots are even better. 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 and we have every sized shoe with us (better bring your own shoes ifyou can). Clothing-wise, wear shorts if its hot, but generally Jeans and a T-shirt with a windbreaker is the best bet. We include everything needed for the flight (helmets and all flying equipment) as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments. Naturally, it’s best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
Things to BringSun-block (sunscreen) and hat (it’s often sunny and we don’t want you getting sunburned!) and drinking water! Always wear comfortable running shoes
Guests or SpectatorsSpectators can wait on the ground for the guests to return

Notes

We always meet at the very end of Signal hill drive, once you get to the parking area you will be welcomed by our take off manager Witness, signed up and briefed on the launch. Once you’re securely clipped in, all you need to do is take a few light steps before you’re flying! With an expert pilot behind you, you will feel just great!

Tandem paragliding gives you an amazing sense of freedom. Once in the air, most people are surprised at how relaxed they feel. You’ll sit comfortably upright (like on your sofa at home). You won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all, since you glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/hr.

In optimal weather conditions you even have the chance to fly the paraglider yourself! Your instructor will place his hands above yours to show you how to steer. It really is quite simple and really, really fun! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course!

It was our 2nd flight with para pax and it was amazing. We can definitely recommend flights with para pax, organization was easy and the team is amazing. We will definitely do it again. Thanks ? - Lauche Melanie


Everything about the experience was amazing from booking, communication, the care of everyone we met and the flight itself. My 12 year old son was very nervous and Steff and his team did everything to help him feel at ease which I was very grateful for. Having the photos and videos after was a really special momento. - Naomi Simon


You haven't truly seen Cape Town, South Africa until you do it from the seat of Parapax paraglide! It's been a couple of weeks since my ride with Steph and I am still flying high. Amazing team who take care of you from the moment you walk up. Steph made the journey relaxing and enjoyable and the video and pics, simply stunning. Thank you for an amazing time and wonderful life changing experience! - Karen Kemp-Prosterman
