For an unforgettable flying experience, requiring no experience and as little as 1 hour of your time, take off with an experienced guide from lions head and go paragliding! Nearly anyone can be flown. The companies are disabled friendly, having taken wheelchair-bound paraplegics, children from as young as 6 years old and passengers up to 135kg in weight, so literally, almost anybody can take to the skies.

To the South, the Mother City lies sandwiched between towering Table Mountain and bustling Table Bay harbour. Further to the south, and to the far side of the mountain, lies False Bay, Hout Bay and the splendour of the South Peninsula as far as Cape Point. To the West, you will spot Robben Island and the Atlantic breaking on the beautiful Cape West Coast, as famous for its icy water temperature as its mouth-watering crayfish. To the North, the Langebaan lagoon , a great kitesurfing and windsurfing venue.

Optional Extra: Have your momentous occasion filmed by the pros so that you'll be able to watch your jump again once you have caught your breath.
