Soaring high over Cape Town’s iconic mountains makes tandem paragliding a truly awesome experience. With flights taking off from Lion’s Head or Signal Hill, visitors get a bird’s eye view of the city that is like no other. Cape Town Tandem Paragliding accepts guests of all ages and fitness, as their trained and experienced guides accompany each flight to ensure the safest and most exhilarating experience possible.


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.

City Pass special

Pass holders receive a discounted rate of R1,000.

Advice for visitors

When flying from Lion’s Head, it’s important to note that you must hike to your launch point on the mountain. It’s not a challenging hike, but guests will need to wear appropriate clothes and shoes, and bring water.  Paragliding instructors will make every effort to give you the longest possible flight (up to 30-minutes), but the duration is dependent on wind conditions. Ask your guide about in-flight photo and video options to capture your high-flying memories forever.

They are powerful enough to launch their 2 tonne bodies out of the water and are the ocean's apex predators which make them therefore much less abundant than other large sharks. It also makes them the most feared creatures of the sea, to both sailors and sea inhabitants alike.
