Take an unforgettable flight experience with the ‘Parapax’ tandem paragliding company. The team consists of the most experienced and highly qualified group of pilots in Cape Town and its surrounds. Easy start and safe landing – all you need is a good state of health, closed walking shoes, & warm clothing.
Flights are usually undertaken in the morning for the most favourable wind conditions and launch sites differ dependant on the wind direction on the day. Times & location shall be confirmed on booking.
What does TANDEM flying involve?
You will be securely strapped into a comfortable flying harness positioned in front of the pilot. All you’ll need to do is run briefly during the launch and landing. The harness is built for comfort and safety so you can sit back and take in the scenic splendour while your pilot flies you.
A tandem flight will last approximately 30 minutes, depending on the conditions.
Can anybody fly?
Yes! as long as you are 8 years and older, and you don’t weigh more than 130kgs! We are also disabled-friendly.
Rotary Drive in Hermanus is the best site for when the South-Easterly wind is blowing (our prevailing summer wind). It is a long ridge shaped like a gentle wave which provides great flying conditions. We can often soar up and down the ridge and land back at our launch point! A beautiful curving bay lies out in front and there is a poetic simplicity to the landscape. In springtime, you may see whales in the bay.
