In Cape Town, we provide tandem paragliding mainly from Lions Head and Signal Hill. The tandem paragliding launch site we use depends on the wind direction at the time. Sometimes we start flying from Signal Hill and then move across to Lions Head as the wind changes throughout the day.
Tandem paragliding flights in Cape Town vary in duration and it is not possible for us to guarantee a specific flight time due to the changeable nature of the wind and general weather conditions in Cape Town. We only fly in conditions that allow us to launch and land safely. Our tandem paragliding flight instructors are all highly experienced and love to fly. At Skywings paragliding we will always make every effort to give you the longest (up to 30 minutes) and most enjoyable flight possible. In general flights in Cape Town can be anything from 5-30 minutes in duration.
Tandem paragliding in Cape Town can be quite challenging due to unpredictable weather conditions, changes in the wind direction and wind strength can stop us flying. When the weather conditions are favorable, paragliding in Cape Town offers you beautiful scenery of the Atlantic coastline; Camps Bay, Table Mountain, Green Point and Water Front.
