Cape Town Tandem Paragliding Flight

Cape Town

Activity Description

We offer fun, exhilarating and professional Instructional Tandem Paragliding Flights in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Join us to experience the freedom of paragliding from Lions Head or Signal Hill.

It is by far probably one of the best things to do when visiting Cape Town! Enjoy a birds-eye view of the Atlantic Seaboard, Robben Island and off course our very own natural Wonder of the World, Table Mountain.

Sometimes, it only takes one flight to put things in life into perspective. Just about everyone who flies with us are all smiles when we return to mother earth! The deep feelings coming all over you, resonates with your heart, fills your soul with wonder and awakens your mind!


Duration1 hour
WhenAll year round weather dependent.
WhereSignal Hill or Lions Head depending on the wind direction. If flights are done from Signal Hill we land opposite the Winchester Mansions Hotel and if we fly from Lions Head we land right in front of the Bungalow in Clifton.
WeatherParagliding is a weather-dependent sport. High-speed winds, poor visibility, rain and low clouds, are just some of the reasons that can delay, or even cancel our Paragliding operations. In case of bad weather, our team will announce a “standby”, which means we have to put our operations on hold. Regular announcements will be made updating you on the conditions while you wait at our locations. If the weather shows no signs of improving and we have to cancel operations and you cannot reschedule for the next available date, you will receive a full refund. Cape Hope Paragliding is not liable for any costs (travel, stay, etc.) incurred by the individual in the instances mentioned above. We recommend that you join us in the beginning of your travels so that we have the option to reschedule your flight if the weather doesn't play along.
What to WearComfortable closed running shoes, sunglasses and a hat.
Things to BringYour gift voucher, if you have one and off course Sunscreen!
Guests or SpectatorsAre more than welcome to come with on the day of the flight. We recommend that they bring comfortable running shoes because the chances are pretty high that they end up Paragliding as well :) Guests can either watch the take off from Signal Hill/Lions head or they can wait on the landing which is either opposite the Winchester Mansions hotel in Seapoint or the Bungalow in Clifton.

Customer Reviews

We had the best time paragliding! It was so much fun. Would recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town! - Stephanie Newman

Nice experience, supplier very reactive, I would recommend - André TANCHOU

This was a dream of mine that was an absolute pleasure and an experience of my lifetime. At 86 years old I was apprehensive but I was handled professionally and loved every minute of the flight Thank you - Euan Cormack Thomson

It was one of the most exciting experiences ever. Thanks, Francois, you made my day! I will most definitely be back bringing friends with this time. - Karen Scheffer

We surprised our kids with a trip to Cape Town for Christmas while we were visiting family in Joburg. We booked a flight for all four of us to jump. On the day of the jump the winds started to change and a lot of other teams struggled to get their gliders up, but Francois and his team launched all four of us without a hitch. His was the only team to not have an issue while I was waiting for my turn. My wife is terrified of heights and her Pilot was joking around with her and put her at total ease. She said he made her feel so comfortable it was truly a great experience. My daughter jumped with Francois' dad and he even let her take the controls for a bit on the way down. Look no further if you are considering paragliding in Cape Town, these guys are the best! - Andrew Klaren
