In just a few short years, the Ghana Paragliding Festival has become an integral part of the annual Easter celebrations in Ghana. Easter is one of the most popular holidays in many regions throughout the country. The festival attracts both Ghanaians and foreigners alike for more than 3 days of spectacular aerial fun, ceremony and music.

For the last many years, tandem paraglider pilots have gathered from around the world to fly local Ghanaian spectators and foreign visitors. The festival is open to solo pilots as well; and boasts consistent flying conditions that begin around mid morning and remain soarable until late in the day. The thermals are consistently large and mild and offer a fantastic flying opportunity.

If you are interested in making any sort of advance reservation, you will need to contact the Ghana Tourism Authority directly.

As the Festival is very busy and quite hectic, also coinciding with the Easter Festival in the same area, organized a Private Paragliding Week-end (see pictures) in 2012 for our Members the following week-end. As it was a success, we did plan to do it again in 2013, with 3 American pilots instead of 2 so 36 guests could fly instead of 24. Unfortunatly, we were ordered to cancel just a week ahead. No similar plans have been made since.
