Want to try jumping off Table


Cape Town is increasingly becoming known as a mecca for Adventure sports addicts and thrill seekers. To name  few activities you can do here: Abseiling, Kloofing, shark cage diving, mountain biking etc.

It seems that this year I have seen a lot of paragliders. I don’t know if the weather is more favourable or if I just havn’t noticed them before. The most popular take off point seems to be half way up Lions Head. The take off is actually remarkably undramatic with the pilots runnng down a steep slope and gently taking off.

Once in the air the views must be absolutely awesome. The gliders seem to be in the air for ages circling above Camps Bay. The other day I counted 5 in the air at one time.

The passenger sits in front of the pilot and look quite comfortable. Flight time varies on wind conditions and the landing close to Camps Bay also looks very gentle.

Feel like adventure? Give paragliding a try. Its an amazing way to see Cape Town from on high
