hang gliding
Posted November 16th, 2012 - 10:27 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
hallo guys,

i´m searching for some advices about hang gliding as a tandem. Do you know were i can book a flight? Can you recommend someone, or maybe you know someone who offers it? I suppose i have to go to the drakensberge?
i never tried before, but i thought my next trip to sa might be a good opportunity to try out something breathtaking.
in april i will land in durban, afterwards heading to hluhluwe and than to margate.

regards,

laura

Hey Laura!

I tried to do the hang-gliding (or paragliding if u mean that) near Underberg in the Drakensberge. It didn't work out eventually due to the weather, but this is the company that offers the flights:

http://www.wildsky.co.za/

they are stationed in Bulwer, 20 min from Underberg. The guys seemed to be really nice and the area/landscape is just awesome! I think its a very good idea to do a flight there and generally visit that breathtaking area. Its 750 Rand though, for only around 20 min I guess, still I totally recommend.

If u need any further information about KZN/Drakensberg/Durban let me now, i spent 5 month in Durban, because my girlfriend is living there, so I could offer the one or the other advice.
Have fun! ZA is awesome!
Cheers, Andy
