Welcome to PARA-PAX Tandem & Motorised Paragliding Flights, Cape Town.

Join us to experience the freedom and exhilaration of motorised or freeflight in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Breath-taking views of Table Mountain, Camps Bay, Cape Town and the winelands.


For a truly unforgettable free-flying experience, requiring no experience and as little as 1 hour of your time, try an amazing Tandem flight! Nearly anyone can be flown. Easy starts from the mountains in and around Cape Town and safe landings on the beaches and winelands make an activity that's not scary but can be adrenaline filled for those junkies requesting it! Ever dreamt of flying? This is for you!

Parapax is South Africa's oldest established Tandem Paragliding company. Formed in 2001 as a registered adventure company and with 14 years full-time experience, we have over 12 000 accident-free flights.

As Cape Town's most reputable company, we arrive on time to meet you, provide all that's needed for an excellent flying experience and only fly when it's safe to. Safety is our number 1 priority and we take no chances with anybody's wellbeing.

All Parapax pilots hold officially (SAHPA) recognized licences. Our pilots are all internationally qualified and have vast experience. Some of our pilots even hold world records in paragliding, like Tom Erzen from Slovenia who flew for 8hrs25mins doing the world's furthest out-and-return TANDEM flight - 158km! Extreme adventure, but worth it!

With Tandem Paragliding, as a passenger you require no previous knowledge of the sport at all. The pilot will give you instructions shortly before the flight.

We mostly take off and land on large fields or beaches (like Camps Bay) with no obstacles or dangers. With powered paragliding we even take off from the same areas! We are disabled friendly, having taken wheelchair-bound paraplegics, blind and deaf folks, children from as young as 6 to as old as 90 and passengers up to 135kg in weight, so literally, almost anybody can fly with us!


No previous experience. A good state of health - Good walking shoes - 1 to 2 hours of your time for a standard flight and a half day for a cross country flight.


Parapax offers "In-flight photography and videography". Our pilots fly with a specially made wide-angled digital camera mounted on a retractable telescoping pole. Before takeoff, in flight and on landing, our pilots take photos and video of the passenger and the scenery. This captures the most amazing images and movies of the passengers in the paragliding harness and the landscapes below and around us. See below!

We then burn these onto a CD the moment we land. Cost is a nominal R200 as we want all our passengers to have a great memory of the flight!

We generally meet at the Lions Head parking lot, 300m up Signal Hill road, opposite Tafelberg road and near Table Mountain road.

We also offer a convenient Shuttle service, picking you up anywhere in the center of Capetown / Atlantic seaboard (your hotel / waterfront / Table Mountain's lower cableway station / Camp's bay) and returning you (even to a different spot) for a single R100pp for local sites and R150pp for out-of-town sites. Generally done in our Classy silver Mercedes Vito bus but also in one of our zooty oldtimers ('64 Triumph Convertible or '57 Austin A55 Pickup).

Standard flight from any out-of-town flying sites - Hermanus, Sir Lowries pass (Stellenbosch / Somerset West), Franschhoek, Koringberg, Porterville, Macassar beach, Picketberg add R100pp transport fee if driving there independently.

Cross Country Flights - This is the stuff legends are made of! For a longer flight, join us for a half-day inland (between 30mins and 1hr15min drive from CT) and fly between 45mins and 4hours (average 1 to 2 hours airtime), covering distance in an incredible, unforgettable experience! Cost is R1400 for the flight.

We include everything that's needed for the flight as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments.

After meeting you, note that there is a 15 - 20min walk required when flying Lions Head (not to the very top). Booking is easy!


Calling on the morning of flight is fine, but upfront booking is better. Remember, try and fly early in your time in Cape Town as our sport is weather dependant! We will simply need a cell phone number and how many of you want to fly.

We fly 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset (weather dependant). We will arrange a convenient and safe time to fly with you. Sunset tandem flights are a speciality of our company, but optimal flying is generally 9am to 2pm.

Anyone from 6 to 86years old can fly, be you an individual wanting to try out this amazing experience alone, or a bunch of you as a group (our biggest to date is 63 pax flown in an afternoon, using 16 pilots).

Corporate Incentive Groups & Teambuilding opportunities - Enquire about our group specials for a corporate fun day unlike any other! Conveniently close (it doesnt' get any closer!) to the city centre and completely unique, we'll be able to use all of our experienced instructors to handle the whole group with ease.

So go ahead... "Don't just dream it. Do it!"
