Paragliding tours South Africa
FlyTime offers 2 week paragliding tours from November until January/February. Tours start usually in Cape Town and follow along the Southern Coast to Hermanus and Wilderness and Sedgefield in the Garden Route. The last days before heading back to Cape Town are spend in Porterville where great cross country flying is at home. One night is planned in central Cape Town itself.
Tours are organized and run by German DHV and SAHPA Instructor Jörg Bueble and his wife Lucille who both have extensive knowledge in paragliding and tour organization. A good instructor and guide takes up his wing to demonstrate glider skills and handling. This opens the horizon of the person wanting to learn discover new ways.
