Paraglide from Lions Head

GPS: -33.93673, 18.38724

Altitude: 350m

Grading: Basic License

Ideal Wind: SW, W with speed of 15 -20 km's

This is one of the most popular lauch sites due to its close and therefore convenient, location to the city; easy access and of course stunning views.

Probably the most frequently flown site in the Cape Peninsula during summer, a (SW) sea breeze works best. Thermic action can be relatively active around midday giving enough rise for short Cross-Country flights to Table Mountain and down the Twelve Apostles to Hout Bay (8kms).

Directions

The launch site for Lions Head is reached via a dirt path and takes a certain amount of energy to get to, but is well worth it.

You will find the parking area on the left handside of Signal Hill Road about half a kilometre up.
