Tandem paragliding involves a passenger being securely strapped into a flying harness in front of a trained pilot. The passenger is securely connected to both the pilot and the glider by spreader bars. Cape Town Tandem Paragliding launches from two sites in Cape Town, that vary depending on the wind direction: Lion’s Head and Signal Hill. The popular Lion’s Head launch site has a lower launch allowing for trips during strong wind, as well as an upper launch for light wind. Launches from Signal Hill require a North-Westerly or Westerly wind for an ideal flight.
