Fantastic experience! Everyone from Parapax was extremely professional and I never wondered what was about to happen, from when I arrived until I was back up the top of Signal Hill. When I arrived there were at least 30 people (pilots and clients from various companies) waiting to fly as the wind was not quite right. I had a lot... More

I would highly recommend this company for paragliding. We did it yesterday and was amazing. You do have to run a bit to get going but I'm not a runner and was able to do it even though I lost a shoe on the way! Super relaxing and beautiful flight. Easy landing at Sea Point.

The weather was near perfect with 30C and blue skies. Steff took me and my son on our first tandem paragliding trip from signal Hill down to Seapoint in Cape town. The views are amazing as you soar like a bird. With many years of experience, Steff's calming voice makes the event more relaxing. It is a shame it is... More

I had a fear of hights before I jumped and what shall I say: I enjoyed the flight really! I jumped with Stef and he was so kindly and relaxed that I thought ten minutes should be longer in order to see the nice nature and to feel me so free. His team is amazing - thank you guys for... More

I have Acrophobia and for me just thinking about Paragliding increase my heart beat tremendously. Someone put the idea in my head and i wanted to challenge my fear. What life if you cannot challenge your fears and your inner-self and overcome those obstacles and that was not easy without the directions and patients of Carolina, she is amazing, she... More

Never in my life I thought I would do this. I was walking on the beach in Sea Point when I saw them landing. I went straight to inquire and they put me at ease. I thought I should do this for my 60th birthday. Great experience! Thanks Stef.

I went paragliding with Parapax in March 2017. This was my first time doing anything like this and it was an awesome experience. I highly recommend it to any visitors to Cape Town. The flight itself is pretty quick - over in a matter of a few minutes. You spend a lot more time getting up to Signal Hill, getting... More

My friend and I could regularly see the paragliders fling over our hotel and landing on the grass on the opposite side of the road. We decided to try it out and booked for the following day. It was a beautiful morning and we were booked in for 10.00am. The theory being that our wives would be opposite the hotel... More

It says "The Second Best Thing You Will Do In Cape Town", but sadly my experience wasn't as such ...
