A paragliding adventure

The managing director of the Winchester Mansions Hotel, Nils Heckscher, marked his 50th birthday in a very special way, by going paragliding over the Atlantic Seaboard. What made it even more special was that the experience was a gift from Nurudien Ahmed, the hotel's financial director, who sadly passed away before he could watch Hecksher enjoying his gift.

Paragliding is a great way to see Cape Town and is a growing activity. There are many adventure activities to be experienced in Cape Town, from caving to extreme watersport.

High in the sky ...

... and safely back on the ground
