Overview

Skywings paragliding offers you the best tandem paragliding experience over Atlantic coastline in Cape Town. We truly love what we are doing and we strive to give you the best service you deserve. Not only our famous Turkish hospitality, we also provide the latest equipment, probably the best pictures of your tandem paragliding experience and definitely the best designed t-shirts. Tandem Paragliding is one of the most popular activity in Cape Town. This comes from its safety, comfort, smooth ride, exhilarating maneuvers and open to anyone. Anyone can come and do this awesome outdoor activity, you don’t need any experience at all. 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 if the wind conditions changes throughout the day.

Absolutely amazing experience. Just a pity we picked a day with no wind so the flight was very short. Very accommodating patient helpful people. Even accommodated my 89 year old, very with it adventurous mother, who I think enjoyed it more than anyone.
