Paragliding In Cape Town
Paragliding has always been a popular sport in the world, and now enthusiasts in Sabah has picked up this extreme sport. Lohan Hill, Ranau is the paragliding HQ in Sabah due to its favorable winds and breath-taking views.
In the recent Project 11.12.13 organized by my buddy, Laili Basir, they had a grand time paragliding in the Lohan Hill. The participants came from all over Malaysia and had a memorable experience.
People in extreme sports are the do anything, go anywhere type of people and they are surprising normal people with great altitudes. It is not so much about throwing yourself off a mountain, it is living in the moment and appreciating all that life has to offer.
So it will come as no surprise if they decide to head over to Cape Town, South Africa to take to the skies. Paragliding in Cape Town is an fantastic way to experience South Africa.

Flying Is Great But What About My Photos
You can order in-flight photography when you place your order for your tandem flight. It costs extra but well worth it for the memories. For most of us, it is not often that you will get a chance to do this often enough.
Your pilot will be equipped with a wide angle digital camera to capture the breathtaking views and your smiles while in the air. You can choose to purchase the in flight photos and video which will be given to you in the form of a SD memory card.
