South Africa is truly a spectacular and unique paragliding destination with diverse landscape and wild nature. You will find beautiful long summer days that allows plenty of airtime for beginners all the way through to the experienced pilot. Most of the country raises 1000m above sea level on a large plateau and the coastlines gets plenty of wind. The best time of the year for paragliding is October until May and conditions vary from the mellow soaring winds by the coast up to strong thermic conditions inland. We cover 3 predominant flying areas namely Cape Town, Wilderness and Porterville providing a perfect blend of Coastal and thermic sites. Porterville- Dasklip, Piketberg - Our World class Thermic sites where we fly along the scenic ridges towards Clanwilliam and beyond. Wildernis- Map of Africa, Paradise ridge, Sedgefield, Gerickes, Beach Hotel, Kleikrans to name but a few- All spectacular coastal soaring sites Capetown- Lions head, Table mountain, Sir lowry's pass, Franschhoek, Signal hill, Kommetjie etc where we will enjoy the views over the mother city of Cape Town. We urge all pilots to have a working cell phone(sim cards can be obtained), radio to operate on 141.600 mHz frequency, any livetracker/Spot/Inreach would be beneficial, reserve and helmet is mandatory in South Africa. Personal/travel insurance to cover paragliding is also needed
