Verification

Imagine flying off the world’s highest free standing mountain. The hard slog to get to the top, the feeling of elation as you lay the glider out, and those  indescribable butterflies as your feet finally leave the ground! You can make your dreams come true!

Organising extraordinary expeditions and events, mostly around extreme and endurance sports is our main business. Our in-depth knowledge of Africa, passion for being active, love of travel and nature forms the foundation on which we serve our clients.

As the operator, or working closely with our local partners on the ground where needed, we strive to fulfil our clients’ dreams, taking into consideration their preferences and budget as far as possible.

These are the services we offer you and in order to ensure a correct understanding between ourselves and to clarify our relationship, please refer to our terms and conditions. These terms and conditions govern our relationship and the terms of the services offered and accepted when making use of our service. Please familiarise yourself with this before entering into a contract with us as doing so means that you have agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions.

IMPORTANT:
These are not standard holidays. Climbing to a high altitude and paragliding are genuinely dangerous things to do. The effects of altitude are not just physical, but also have a dynamic impact on the performance of a paraglider. These expeditions are for experienced paragliding pilots who understand the risks involved. Contact us to discuss experience level required. If you are considering this trip to tandem paraglide as a passenger with a friend, you must have flown as a passenger prior to the expedition.
