ELEVATE YOURSELF

Hike & fly expeditions for paragliding pilots that go beyond the ordinary

Unfamiliar big mountains combined with extreme altitude can be intimidating. Having climbed and flown from Kilimanjaro ourselves, we understand the logistics, weather conditions and requirements for a realistic expedition, leaving you to relax and enjoy your adventure.

The highest top to bottom free flight on earth - helping paragliders hike and fly Mt Kilimanjaro has been our passion since our first successful expedition a decade ago.

Africa is calling!

Thank you for visiting us on the web... though we prefer an in person encounter. Africa's rhythm is slowly picking up again while its wildlife is awakening to curious eyes watching them from a safari vehicle. Yes! Tanzania has opened its borders for tourists and our team is looking forward to taking you on incredible paragliding adventures again.

Leaving one's comfort zone to experience something new can be wildly fulfilling. It exposes you to new cultures, mouth watering aromas, insight into different perspectives and unique experiences. Growing up on the African continent and adventuring around the globe myself, I firmly believe Tanzania remains unique and will not disappoint the intrepid adventurer!

However, we have to adapt to a new way of travel with COVID-19 regulations in place. It is important for us that you and our operations team are kept safe while having as much fun as possible. To accommodate you best at this point in time we also have more flexible booking terms. Hope to see you in Tanzania for some proper adventuring!
