Tandem Paragliding - the best way to see Cape Town


How deep are your pockets? That is the first question you need to ask yourself when deciding on the best way to see Cape Town.

In our opinion, the most exhilarating way to see Cape Town is from a Hunter travelling along the Peninsula Cape Town at 900kph! Choosing this option will of course mean that you have either won the Lottery, sold your family to slavery or were born into a fairly substantial amount of money.

On the other side of the coin, if you are as fit as a fiddle and an early riser, you could hike up either Table Mountain or Lions Head. Both of these hikes will not cost you a cent and will probably contribute tremendously towards that rock hard body that you want to display on one of Cape Town's famous beaches the following day.

In the middle are a host of other aviation related activities that all require fairly substantial amounts of Avgas or Jet A1. These include charter flights in a variety of aircraft and helicopters and are a great option if you have a group of people who would like to share your adventure experience.

We have of course left out one of our favourites, Tandem Paragliding. As this adventure activity does not have fuel as an input cost, you will probably still have enough money to enjoy the rest of the day at one of the Cape's numerous wine farms, celebrating your endeavours.

For a full description and more information about this adventure experience, visit our friends at Parapax. In their words, this is "The Second Best Thing You Will Ever Do"! Keep in mind that this activity is weather related, so it is imperative to check the weather forecast a few days in advance to plan your Tandem Paragliding Experience.
