This is a 15-day adventure (or 20 days if the optional Swaziland and Mozambique leg is included). It has been described by many pilots as an African paragliding tour you don’t want to miss out on!
Itinerary: It starts in Mpumalanga. We will pick you up from the International Airport, just a short distance from the world famous Kruger National Park. If you ask any South African paragliding pilot about the best paragliding competitions and areas in South Africa, they will definitely mention The Mpumalanga Barberton Paragliding Competition. This event happens annually at the end of June. We incorporate this friendly competition into the tour and take you to see many other spectacular sites around this magnificent area. You definitely don’t need to be a hardened competition pilot to get in on the action. The sites are friendly and novice pilots will love the easy air. We will also visit locations like the magnificent Gods Window, Mount Carmel, Paradise falls, Ngodwana, Bambi, and Vaalkop to mention but a few.
Activities: We also do day trips into the Kruger National Park for game viewing on non-flying days. The cultural diversity of this area, and friendly Zulu people, will have you coming back every year. We also speak fluent Zulu, so will be able to translate for you.
Accommodation: You will enjoy a number of B&B establishments located close to the areas that we fly in.
Optional Add On: As something special, we go on to fly in Mozambique and Swaziland as an extra add-on to the tour. Booking well in advance is essential, as we only do this special tour once a year.
