Funny how you meet someone, sign a form, then jump off a cliff literally in their hands without ever seeing any credentials or certifications - and then never see them again! They did do a good job, though a friend of mine fell during takeoff and got scolded by his pilot - not cool when you are a paying customer. I should mention that they seemed to rush the "flights" due to high demand and a backup of "flyers" - the weather was poor in the morning, so there were a lot of people in the queue. It seems as we all got the same story - "I'll try to catch a thermal - oh, too bad, we missed it". Meanwhile, there were several people with other companies soaring above us. This company seems to be the busiest and therefore most likely to rush you down - but definitely worth it. Average flights were about 5-10 mins, but they advertise much longer. I guess its great to always have the weather to blame.

We found these guys by accident. We went up to Signal Hill for a bit of a look and saw the paragliding. All 4 of us were keen to give it a go so we returned later that day and had the last 4 flights for the day. Wow, if you think Cape Town is beautiful from the ground you need to do this on a perfect day especially late in the day. It was magnificent!

The price is very reasonable and the guys were friendly and very skilful. A great combination.

Make sure you take the option of the roller coaster landing...it's well worth it!

Had the best flight ever with Manu and his experienced team of paragliders!! We were three girls, all a little shaky at the mere thought of jumping off a mountain strapped to a stranger and relying on the wind to get us down to Green Point. BUT IT WAS AMAZING!! The guys kept us laughing and put us at ease immediately - I even got to hold onto the 'breaks' and pull gently to make the glider dip! The panoramic views were breathtaking and I can't help but want to do it again!!! A very big thank you to Manu and his team, we will be seeing you again soon!!

Loved paragliding! We walked up Lion's head and took off right away. We were able to catch the wind and go up above the top of the mountain. It was beautiful. At the end, my instructor made us glide in tight falling circles at the end and it was great! He seemed to read people and wouldn't have done so had I been the nervous type. I loved it.

We went with Stef Juncker and it was excellent! You have the best view over Cape Town when you're in the air and you fly next to Table Mountain. Higly recommended!
