Tandem paragliding is a heavenly adrenaline rush.
No experience is necessary, your pilot will do all the hard work, you just need to run on take off then sit back and relax and enjoy the view, and don’t forget to smile for the camera.
A paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched aircraft. A tandem para-glider is specifically designed to carry two people. The passenger is strapped into a harness in front of the experienced pilot.
Don’t confuse paragliding with skydiving, you will not be jumping out of a plane. Phew!

An amazing and unforgettable experience! My best friend and I had a wonderful time Paragliding in Cape Town. My instructor name was Carlos. He made me feel comfortable and that I could trust him during my ride from the moment he introduced himself. He knew exactly what he was doing and he explained everything perfectly. Never felt uncomfortable thanks to the professionalism Carlos and his team delivered in a quick manner. I would definitely recommend Icarus Paragliding to anyone that's interested in this adventure while visiting Cape Town :)
Amazing experience. My pilot was a great guy

Our family booked a Paragliding Tandem Tour by Icarus Cape Town on the 4th of August 2019. Unfortunaly the tour was cancalled due bad weather conditions. Also the next 2 days it was not possible to fly. In spite of several mails/apps to the guide and the organisation, I never got a message back on my request for chargeback the money. We are very dissapointed in the organisation and could not recommend it. Koen Mark Buiskool
We had the most incredible experience paragliding off of signal hill. It was the first time either of us have paraglide and we’ll definitely be doing it again. Thank to Jacques expertise and hard work I got a 12 minute flight (about 3 x longer than most people get) and my partner (who’s much bigger than me!) about 5 minutes. We arrived early and rather than waiting, I was flying within 10 minutes! I felt we were in very safe hands. If you’re thinking of paragliding in Cape Town, do it, you won’t regret it!
