About us

Unfamiliar big mountains combined with extreme altitude can be intimidating. Having climbed and flown from Kilimanjaro ourselves, we understand the logistics, weather conditions, and legal requirements involved to give you the best possible chance of a successful expedition – leaving you to relax and enjoy your adventure while we take care of the details.

 

Paraglide Kilimanjaro – With a 5,000m top-to-bottom in one glorious flight from 5,895m to 800m, Mt Kilimanjaro is the ultimate hike-and-fly destination.

 

We specialize in quality small group expeditions and bespoke holidays for small groups of paragliding pilots and their non-flying friends. From the snows of Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru Peak to the wildlife filled grasslands of the Serengeti and the turquoise waters of the island of Zanzibar, our adventures aren’t limited to Kilimanjaro. We take like-minded adventurers on unforgettable wilderness, mountaineering, and paragliding journeys in Tanzania that go beyond the ordinary, giving you the opportunity to go off the beaten track with your paraglider and make the most of your time in Africa.

 

Originating from ‘mama’ Africa, our team has been hiking and flying in Africa since the late 1980’s and have extensive experience organizing hiking expeditions up Mt Kilimanjaro.

 

Paraglide Kilimanjaro is a team of experienced paragliders, travel professionals, and mountaineers with a shared passion for raw and riveting free flight adventures off some of the world’s tallest mountains. From successful hike and fly expeditions up Aconcagua, Carstensz Pyramid, Kilimanjaro, and Elbrus, to participating in world class events such as the Red Bull X-Alps and World Paragliding Championships, our team has done it all.

 

We also have substantial event and organizing experience, having been responsible for paragliding events at national air shows to extreme adventure events such as the X-Berg Challenge, National Paragliding Championships, SIV support operations, and qualified paragliding instruction.

 

Our team strongly believes that travelling is all about the experience and it’s the details that set us apart. From the route that gets you there and where you spend the night to the people that look after you and the adventures you have along the way – we look after all the details from start to finish. Drawing on over two decades of experience combined with our extensive local and operational knowledge, we pride ourselves in offering our guests the very best experience possible.

 

Working closely with the Tanzanian authorities we operate paragliding expeditions on Kilimanjaro. We believe that by creating and sustaining permanent jobs through these expeditions, we can bring long-term benefits and prosperity to the friendly community around Kilimanjaro. For example for every 6 paragliding pilots joining one of our expeditions, we provide jobs for about 30 people in Tanzania.

 

It is also very important for us that realistic, safe and reliable operations form the core of what we do. Our philosophy is to provide paragliding pilots, and their non-flying friends, with a unique experience. The hiking part of the expedition is suitable for even relatively novice hikers and our support crew takes care of all the services along the way. We work on a simplistic approach – if you have the needed experience and want to fly from the top, we can help to make that dream a reality! Yes, it’s that easy!
