The Destination

Africa is a continent of wild open spaces, incredible cultures, wildlife and jaw dropping aerial views for paragliding pilots to enjoy. Tanzania offers a very unique experience and transports you back in time, to a romantic world without the stress of modern living; from the icy summit of Mt Kilimanjaro to the tropical blue waters lapping the white sandy beaches of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia Island. Hike up an active volcano in the Rrift Valley just to fly over some of the most stunning landscapes on earth. This is a most remarkable destination.

The Experience

Paragliding from the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the the world, is an incredible experience! The dormant volcano rises more than 5,100m above the plains below, rewarding you with at least a 90 min flight over some of the most unique and diverse terrain anywhere in the world. Our fully guided multi-day hike to the top is tough but very rewarding. While on the mountain tented accommodation with three meals per day, full porter service to carry your gear and paraglider to the top are included. We provide a comprehensive package which is tailored specifically for paragliders to maximize success-rate with multiple days for launching from the summit. Make the most of your time in East Africa - Wildlife safari, Beach/Island and other flying adventure add-on options are available.


Hotel accommodation will be provided at our base hotel pre- and post-hike. A swimming pool is available to enjoy along with a well-stocked bar serving Africa's finest beer. The hotel is buzzing with fellow climbers and travelers. Rooms have air-conditioners/fan and en-suite facilities. On the mountain sleeping tents will be provided along with all meals which are freshly prepared by our experienced mountain chef.

Linda is your host for this experience and will provide you with all the information needed.

I have spent most of my career in travel, starting out as a Tour & Safari guide, and the majority as Marketing and Sales Manager for a South African based tour operator before starting out on my own. I learned to Paraglide after climbing Kilimanjaro in 2000 and trying to find a use for my expensive hiking boots. Since then I've had the privilege of flying in amazing places around the world, not least in Tanzania. Together my partners, Pierre Carter and Alistair Stuart, and our extended team we have a passion for Africa and helping people to share in it's natural splendor. We love to hear from you!
