Paraglide in South Africa
Does paragliding give you the biggest adrenalin surge? Come and paraglide in South Africa, we have a big portion of blue sky days and acres of sumptuous landscapes that look spectacular from any angle and more so from above. Fly over rock, sand, green plains and water, the options and combinations are unlimited.
South Africa’s hot interior is known for thermals which have helped many Paragliders to record impressively long distance flights. These are found predominantly in the flat and hot Northern Cape where the artist in you will be inspired by shades of tan, gold and brown.
When this dry area has left you parched and thirsting for more paragliding, head to the coastal provinces namely Eastern Province, KwaZulu-Natal or Western Cape for a bit of ocean gazing. There are abundant ridges to soar over and some fantastic scenic flying is available along the coast.
In popular Cape Town, you can paraglide off Lion's Head and fly into the sunset then land at one of the vibey beachfront pubs. North from there visit Wilderness on the Garden Route for sights of dolphins and whales as you launch into the big blue beside the great Indian Ocean.
Inland the mountainous and hilly parts of the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga will reward paragliders with mind blowing scenery.
For those jetting in for business in Gauteng there is a controlled airspace near Hartbeespoort Dam in the Magaliesburg area that offers good paragliding.
