The extreme sport of paragliding is one of the world’s most loved extreme sports as it offers an adrenaline rushing heart hammering experience that is largely unmatched by many other sports in the same category. There are numerous advantages to paragliding namely there is no large, inflexible equipment you have to drag around with you, and with certain operators no prior knowledge of the sport is needed before you embark on your magical expedition. However, paragliding would not be even half as much fun if there wasn’t a terrific location in which to indulge your favourite pastime. Cue the stunning city of Cape Town and its surrounding enclaves. One of the best tour operators in Cape Town is Tandem Paragliding and this company is one of those establishments where patrons do not need any prior knowledge of experience of paragliding to enlist the help and advice of their expertly trained guides.
The Fair Cape as it is also affectionately known by the locals is undoubtedly South Africa’s most beautiful destination. Laidback and elegant, the Fair Cape is one of the country’s premier paragliding destinations as it boasts a number of unbelievably magnificent sites from which to disembark. Imagine taking off from the tip of the superior Lion’s Head with the likes of the city’s foreshore behind you and the iconic Table Mountain next door before heading for the city’s best beaches in Camps Bay, Clifton, and even Llandudno. This is one of the more scenic paragliding sojourns on offer and promises to be extremely captivating and enthralling as it boasts sumptuous views of some of Cape Town’s most scintillating natural spectacles. Other paragliding opportunities are found near Signal Hill, False Bay, Sir Lowries Pass, and many other fantastic sites.
