If you're an adrenaline junkie, Cape Town has many adventures to test your metal- one of the most popular and enjoyable ones is paragliding.
I have tried many companies and Icarus is by far the best. Operated by Jaques, a local pilot with over ten years flying experience, all the pilots are South African so you're definitely getting the real deal.
They are very friendly and professional, in what has sadly become a cut throat industry for tourists.
Twirling on the currents with the dazzling sea beneath you, this is one experience you will remember long after you've posted the pics on Facebook!
