Aerial Extreme Sports South Africa

Humans have always been fascinated by the idea of flying. You can experience the freedom and excitement of flight by partaking in one or more extreme aerial sports such as paragliding, gliding or skydiving.


Experience the allure and beauty of South Africa from a birds eye-view when you paraglide from above. Tandem paragliding is the perfect introduction to free flight; no training or previous experience needed. With a licensed paragliding pilot, you can enjoy the experience of a lifetime. There is no age limit for tandem, as long as children under 18 years of age have the consent of their parents. There is, however, a weight limit (usually about 120 kilograms for the passenger, but this will need to be confirmed with your provider).

Fights vary from 10 – 30 minutes, plan at least half a day for flying conditions and pre-flight preparations. Your instructor will give a short brief before take-off, so that you know what to expect and what to look out for along the way. The direction you glide will depend on the wind direction, which also determines if conditions are safe enough for flying.
