Hiking and flying from Kilimanjaro is of course very weather dependent. Our next departure date available, aiming to give the best weather windows based on many years experience operating on Kilimanjaro.
2018 Set Departures:
16-25 February 2018
10-19 August 2018
07-16 September 2018
NOTE: These are not standard Kilimanjaro hikes and should not be compared to standard hiking packages - its tailored to the needs of paragliding pilots wanting to fly from Kilimanjaro. Complete package from start to finish in partnership with Tanzania National Parks and with all necessary authorizations in place.
James Braid: "What inspired me to take up paragliding? I have always loved the idea of free flight: no engine, no heavy gear. Easy to travel with and walk up mountains with your own aircraft."
James has been the support crew for former Red Bull X-Alps athlete, Pierre Carter in 2009, 2011 & 2013. He is well known in the South African paragliding community since the 90's and is the dealer in SA for Gradient. He also joined the 2011 Paraglide Kilimanjaro expedition (due to some 'Pierre Pressure') with his sister Samantha Braid.
