Overview

Wild Sky Paragliding is a professional paragliding school that operates full time. We offer tandem flights and courses. We also have a backpackers at the foot of Bulwer mountain. The views from our flying sites are spectacular. At the main site in Bulwer once we've thermalled to above the peaks one can see the Southern Drakensberg. Some of our flying sites are situated in rural Kwazulu Natal and has a true African feel.

I went for a tandem flight with Hans. What an amazing experience. I use the scene from up there to take me away from the dentist chair in my mind's eye and have my teeth done without an injection.

Stopped in for a night on our way into Lesotho. Rustic but beautiful settings, would definitely go back... ideally suited to those doing a paragliding course, or chilling after a day in the sky. One thing though... if you're staying over, take mosquito spray!!!
