I decided I wanted to do something special and memorable for my 50th birthday. My husband booked me in with Fly Cape Town Paragliding. I panicked for three days prior because the wind was hectic but come the day it was gorgeous. The process was quick and simple, sign on the line, helmet fitted, harness fitted, fitted to my pilot...

I used this service over Easter 2016.. Bad weather had our booking cancelled numerous times, and this was a problem as i was only in town for a few days. Luckily, we managed to get a booking for two while waiting on the mountain and through persistence. I think we were the only ones who jumped that day. Beware of... More

If you are afraid to fly, but want the pics and video, don't forget to remind the staff to take the pics for you. In my opinion, when you take off is the best! But unfortunately I didn't get them, just pics and video during the fly.

Hi Julianayukari, Thank you for taking the time to review our services. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the flight with us. Unfortunately the only way to film the take off is for the passenger (you) to hold the Gopro. Our pilots generally only film the take off with the permission of the passenger.

I took my daughter to paraglide for her 21st birthday for this amazing experience. The easy booking process went without a hitch and the service provider kept us informed about the weather via SMS. At arrival at Signal hill we were immdiately received and introduced to our pilots with their exceptional skill levels. The harnasses were secured and each pilot... More

This was the best gift I have received from my best friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the paraglide. The photos are worth it so do take them. Emil is the best! Had the best time. Only issue was they were running behind schedule. I was also pressed for time. It would be ideal if you allow about 2 hr buffer incase... More
