About
Wild Sky Paragliding is a professional paragliding school that operates full time. We offer tandem flights and courses. We also have a backpackers at the foot of Bulwer mountain. The views from our flying sites are spectacular. At the main site in Bulwer once we've thermalled to above the peaks one can see the Southern Drakensberg. Some of our flying sites are situated in rural Kwazulu Natal and has a true African feel.

I definitely would do it again and again. This is money well spent for a a bit of family fun. There are no words to explain how awesome the view is from up there

I went for a tandem flight with Hans. What an amazing experience. I use the scene from up there to take me away from the dentist chair in my mind's eye and have my teeth done without an injection.

Hans and Ria are super enthusiastic and helpful. Hans was very knowledgeable about the area and paragliding. He was a great guide and a very interesting person. The accommodation was very reasonably priced and comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend staying here for a week or so. The Nip Inn just 1km down the road is a nice place if you don’t enjoy your own cooking. As I solo travelled I was very comfortable there. The flying sites were all very nice with mostly nice grass for launch and landing.

It's a rustic and charming set of cottages in a beautiful valley. And then there are the mountains. . . To jump off.
I'm still a student pilot and spend 3 days flying under their instruction. 5 stars for location, for passion and for knowledge. I highly recommend both the venue (they've everything you need - they are just wooden cottages) and their instruction.
Then, as I said, the mountain to jump off.

I began with the 2 day introductory course, and then continued to complete my basic license from Feb to April. Hans and Ria are super enthusiastic, experienced, and professional instructors keeping the course very relaxed, fun and safe.

The lodge is a beautiful rustic setting with fully equipped self-catering options. Access to mountains, grasslands and nearby forest birding areas. A wonderful place to stay whether you are paragliding or just chilling on the way to the drakensberg.

Me and my boyfriend went skydiving last week and it was amazing! Best thing we have done on our holiday in SA. The instructor was lovely and calmed me down throughout the flight when I was getting nervous. I would definitely recommend and would do it again!

Stopped in for a night on our way into Lesotho. Rustic but beautiful settings, would definitely go back... ideally suited to those doing a paragliding course, or chilling after a day in the sky.
One thing though... if you're staying over, take mosquito spray!!!
