Our History

The farm Paradise was bought in 1946 by Max Muskat for a mere £1 200. It covers 40 hectares and for the most part it was unused until Max’s son, Jacques, saw an opportunity to develop some of the land and moved there in 1990.

About Paradise Ridge

The farm Paradise was bought in 1946 by Max Muskat for a mere £1 200. It covers 40 hectares and for the most part it was unused until Max’s son, Jacques, saw an opportunity to develop some of the land and moved there in 1990. He took it upon himself to take out 15 hectares of pine trees.

After the removal of the trees  the tracks leading to the previously pine tree covered land were connected with some more tracks  and with the help of Bertie Stander from Sedgefield and Leon Fourie an exciting 4X4 track was established. In 2005 the 4X4 track was finalised and thus Paradise 4X4 became an exciting active route.

In 2006 Michael from Luftikus, a German Paragliding School first saw the potential for a great paragliding site. Since then international pilots and local pilots frequently make use of the site for hours of fun and ridge soaring.

The land offers variety of plant species (mostly fynbos), different kinds of trees of which most are evergreen, a huge variety of bird species (among these are the fish eagle and kingfishers), and various animals and bucks that roam the land freely making it the perfect place for bird watching, camping, and hiking. A short walk down the ridge will get you to the beach which is great for the fishing enthusiasts. From July to … you can watch the whales play just offshore whilst dolphin sightings are common all year round.
