Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Bulwer, in KwaZulu Natal

In the heart of the Natal Midlands of South Africa is the breath-taking Southern Drakensberg Mountain Range; where crisp, clear air and irresistible sunshine combine to create a setting of utter tranquillity and escapism. There are few better ways to experience the landscape and the beauty of South Africa than from the quiet heights of a hang glider.

The Bulwer Hang Gliding School is nestled at the foot of the Drakensberg Mountains in the town of Bulwer. While small, this town has actually gained much acclaim for its excellent hang gliding and flying opportunities, and is frequented by tourists from all over the world. Of course, its idyllic situation, with the backdrop of the breath-taking Amahaqwa Mountain, adds to its natural allure.

Hang gliding can be learnt in just 10 to 12 days (depending on how you would like to break the lessons up), with expert tutorship and plenty of practice. Gliders in this part of South Africa will be left breathless with awe as they soar over the magnificent forests. They are also advised to keep a lookout for the many impressive bird species, including eagles and cape vultures, which share the high African skies with them. Students launch from the Amahaqwa Mountain at a height of 1840 metres above sea level. The instructor boasts decades of experience and training, and is fully accredited by the South African Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.

Various degrees of training are offered. Students can opt for shorter introductory courses that explain the basics, or can go for the full course that offers a hang gliding license. Those who have glided in the past and become a little rusty can do a refresher course, while previous pilots are welcome to participate in a relicensing course. The courses can be conducted during the week or on weekends.
