With the fresh southwesterly winds and a nice, soft place to land, the dunes around Swakopmund represent one of the great paragliding training facilities in the world.

Paragliding in Namibia is usually done with a guide that knows the conditions and flying sites in Namibia. The dunes are regulated by the local training school to insure safety and reduce overcrowding. It is best to be in a travel group because it makes the trip cheaper. Hence, available tours are scheduled start form September to the end of March, which are the main season and the best flying times in Namibia. Tours include all transfers, specialized training in strong wind reverse launch techniques, accommodation, guiding and permits. For more information please visit:
