Wild Sky Paragliding school has been operating since 1993. We have an excellent reputation and are accredited with SAHPA (the South African Hanggliding and Paragliding Association) and a member of the Aeroclub of South Africa. Hans Fokkens, our chief instructor, has been paragliding since 1989 and teaching paragliding since 1993. He has also had his tandem license for many years and has done hundreds of tandem flights. He has Protea colours for paragliding. As far as safety and knowledge goes, you are in excellent hands. Ria Fokkens, also a Paragliding Instructor at the school, is in charge of bookings, finances, etc. We have four extremely friendly (but obedient) dogs that will welcome you in their own special way. Scuzzy, Fatso, Nooka and Loopy love people and especially kids.
The paragliding school operates FULL TIME seven days a week.
We have top instructors and tandem pilot with the experience needed to make paragliding a safe, fun and exciting activity. With us you will learn to fly properly, using ridge lift and thermals to get up. Your instructors’ vast experience will help you become an above average pilot with all the necessary skills and tools you need to fly. You will have a solid foundation from which to build a good understanding of the sky and its limits. We have very high safety standards and a brilliant record.
We offer comfortable, affordable accommodation in an absolutely perfect location for paragliders, from beginners to experienced cross-country pilots.
Our lodge is situated at the foot of the Amahaqwa Mountain in Bulwer, Kwazulu-Natal. From here the landing field of our main site is only a few hundred metres away and more experienced pilots can land right on the front lawn!
The view from the lodge is fantastic, with the mountain on one side and the valley on the other. The accommodation we offer is rustic, but comfortable, and suitable for anyone from campers to families.
The area offers a vast choice of activities for family members and non-pilots. See our activities page for more details on horse riding, abseiling, tubing, river rafting, hiking & bird watching, fly fishing etc.
