Our Cape Town flights begin on Signal Hill and end at the Sea Point Promenade. Few days of the year the wind allows for flights to launch from Lions’ Head and land between Camps Bay and Clifton 4th Beach. Signal Hill and Lion’s Head form part of the Table Mountain National Park and are known for spectacular views over the city and ocean.
Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide. Signal Hill is the site that we fly from most commonly because of its location and the stunning views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town area.
Note that there is a 15 – 20min walk required when flying Lions Head (not to the very top).

On the day of your flight, our pilots will meet you at the Signal Hill car park. After launching you can sit back and relax in your harness while you soak up the view of beautiful Cape Town. An adrenaline rush will kick in when you spiral down to landing.

In-flight videos and photos are available for you to reminisce your paragliding adventure.

Pictures and videos can be made of each client from a very wide-angled “go-pro” style camera and these are then viewed upon landing when you can choose if you would like to have this unforgettable memory of your flight. All the pictures and video are on a 2 or 4GB SD card (which all computers take). You can reuse this complimentary card in the future. Cost: R350 pp (pay cash on the day).
