Bulwer Paragliding and Hang Gliding, Natal Midlands

Bulwer, Natal Midlands, Hang Gliding and Paragliding

Bulwer is known as one of South Africa’s top paragliding and hang gliding sites, attracting both local and international pilots from around the globe. The conditions are excellent year round, offering  fliers plenty of opportunity to take advantage of its multi – level flying possibilities. Spacious take off and safe landing sites, with consistent flying conditions and on-hand local expertise, in both flying disciplines, make this a must-fly spot for everyone hooked on free flying, from beginner to advanced cross country and competition level pilots.

Bulwer, Natal Midlands, Hang Gliding and Paragliding

Free flying is in harmony with beautiful nature, and whether you are seeking a burst of adrenaline yourself or are happy just to watch the pilots take off, you will enjoy the drive up to the top of the Amahaqwa mountain, 1840 metres above sea level. In spring and summer the grassland is ablaze with rare and beautiful wild flowers, giant protea bushes and butterflies, and the views over the Bulwer conservancy of indigenous forests are quite breath-taking.

If you are more adventurous still, you can take a 15-20 minute paragliding tandem flight with ex Protea pilot Hans Fokkens, and maybe encounter some Cape Vultures, Jackal Buzzards, and Black and Long Crested Eagles in the air.

If you like what you see, you can arrange for either an introductory or full training course in either Hang Gliding or Paragliding, from one the highly experienced Bulwer SAHPA licensed instructors.

We make sure your experience is so good, you will keep returning – like so many of our fliers!
