With a passion for flying, Stef Juncker launched the idea of Parapax in 1999.  Parapax is the market leader and original tandem paragliding company in Africa.  A team of highly experienced pilots and managers make this exciting, well thought out company a success. The crew always put safety and fun first, standing well out amongst our competitors.



Today Stef has over 15 000 accident free flights and prides himself on running one of the world's best tandem paragliding businesses.



Paragliding is a form of unpowered flight in which rising air is needed to keep the glider aloft. This rising air can come from two sources: 1. when the sun heats features on the ground, columns of rising air known as thermals are generated 2. when wind encounters a ridge in the landscape, the air is forced upwards, providing ridge lift. In mountainous environments, flying is mostly based around thermals, which can be used to stay aloft before heading for a landing field below the launch site. In hill environments, ridge lift is used for ridge soaring, and landing can be done either back at the launch site, or at a landing field at the bottom of the ridge. In either case, more experienced pilots can use thermals to go ‘cross country’.  



Tandem paragliding flights involve a candidate students being securely strapped into a comfortable flying harness positioned in front of the pilot and connected to the pilot and the glider. The tandem glider is specially designed to carry two people and is nearly twice the size of a regular solo paraglider.
