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 ... The flight down to Sea Point Promenade was very quick & regret not having brought my GoPro with me cause I wanted to appreciate the view and buy the photos & video footage from them but sadly the pictures were...

I had pre-booked to do a Paraglide with Parapax Tandem Paragliding for Saturday but because of the crazy Cape Winds it was eventually third time lucky for me to be able to do the flight. The whole team at Parapax were totally professional at all times. Francois, Witness both exemplary. Francois managed the booking and changing conditions expertly. Witness allayed... More

Paragliding is fantastic and there aee few doubts about it. A tandem flight is also safe. However I consider my experience at parapax much worse than other I had. It is very short. It is done on one side of signal hill where the panorama is not so dramatic. But most importantly in those five minutes that the flight lasts,... More

I had the great pleasure or bumping into someone who suggested I contact Stef (the owner )with over 15,000 flights under his belt. What a charming and professional pilot. Took the time to show me the beautiful sights overlooking Signal Hill. Stunning! He really made someone who has vertigo jump over his shadow and enjoy. I'd suggest this company &... More

Even though I was very quiet during the whole experience, trying to take in the absolutely magnificent view, Nigel was really fantastic. It was an amazing experience being in the sky in a completely different way to what I am used to(I am cabin Crew) will definitely be returning very soon

Fantastic morning! Taking a leap of faith off Signal Hill with a calm, competent pilot was exhilarating. The flight was smooth and incredibly beautiful- just over far too quickly.
