Here’s something different for all you adventure seekers. In case you hadn’t noticed those guys that hangout above Lions Head and Camps Bay on the weekends, Tandem Paragliding is big in Cape Town. I was inspired to write this post in an effort to gain more insight into these crazies that see fit to mellow out at such death defying heights.
I did a bit of research and found that a Tandem paragliding experience makes a great gift for your nervous mate or even a romantic birthday gift for your extreme girlfriend or boyfriend. Cape Town paragliding adventures offer unrivalled views as you glide along in the lower echelons of the troposphere. No matter the season it’s better to dress warm and you don’t need any prior experience or training to partake in this exhilarating Cape Town craze. Once you’ve landed safely on the field at Maiden’s Cove (between Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches) you can enjoy a drink and a pizza at La Med Restaurant and Bar overlooking the Atlantic.
