Where can I see hang gliding in action in South Africa?


 

South Africa is blessed with an abundance of mountains and where ever there is a good road to the top chances are at some time, pilots have flown from there! The most popular flying sites in South Africa are Aviators Paradise (A tow launch runway conveniently situated next to the main road - just park and watch), Dolphin point in Wilderness (known as the Map of Africa) Sir Lowries pass and Signal hill or Lions head near Cape Townt. On most weekends there will be some pilots around especially if the weather is good! The wind must be coming up the mountain and when ever this happens you will find the pilots heading to the mountains! It is a good idea to contact your nearest school/club for more information on the exact location of flying in your area.
