WeatherParagliding is a weather-dependent sport. High-speed winds, poor visibility, rain and low clouds, are just some of the reasons that can delay, or even cancel our Paragliding operations. In case of bad weather, our team will announce a “standby”, which means we have to put our operations on hold. Regular announcements will be made updating you on the conditions while you wait at our locations. If the weather shows no signs of improving and we have to cancel operations and you cannot reschedule for the next available date, you will receive a full refund. Cape Hope Paragliding is not liable for any costs (travel, stay, etc.) incurred by the individual in the instances mentioned above. We recommend that you join us in the beginning of your travels so that we have the option to reschedule your flight if the weather doesn't play along.
What to WearComfortable closed running shoes, sunglasses and a hat.
Things to BringA filled and signed copy of our Covid screening form (also available at our locations, if required). A facemask to protect you from Covid 19. Your gift voucher, if you have one and off course Sunscreen!
Guests or SpectatorsAre more than welcome to come with on the day of the flight. We recommend that they bring comfortable running shoes because the chances are pretty high that they end up Paragliding as well :) Guests can either watch the take off from Signal Hill/Lions head or they can wait on the landing which is either opposite the Winchester Mansions hotel in Seapoint or the Bungalow in Clifton.

Customer Reviews

Great experience, loved every moment of it and was the best 30min of my life! Would definitely do it again and bring more people! - King Yeks

An incredible experience of flight in its purest form - just you and the wind....and the pilot of course. But since you don't see the canopy - above you, nor the pilot -behind you, it feels like you're suspended. #Cape Hope was excellent, booking online was very simple. I arranged a pickup from the landing zone, which made it easy to not to deal with traffic to Signal hill and also my wife could see me land. The whole experience was very sleek, professional and customer friendly? Thanks Francois - Shaheen Petersen

One of the best experiences I have had in my life. The guiders were extremely friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable. It was definitely worth it. I will recommend it to anyone. Thanks Cape Hope Paragliding for the experience and your professional service. - Moegamat Hakeem Brown

Excellent! - Floriane

We had an amazing experience paragliding with Francois Junior and Senior. Taking off from Lion's head, flying up over Lion's head and moving towards Table mountain was fantastic. What a memorable flight in one of the most beautiful city in the world ! Francois are very friendly and explaining well the process during the flight, all in a safe way. Highly recommended!! - Damien
