Tour description

The unique location, weather and animal kingdom lure the pilots for uncommon flights. Flying over the savannah, watching the animals running down there or soaring over the coconut palms and the white sandy shores of the Indian Ocean is an inimitable experience of one’s paragliding carrier.

We aim to visit and fly as many places as it is possible – that’s why it is a safari-like trip. We spend the nights in different National Parks or very close to them, thus you can get acquainted with the enthralling wildlife and natural wonders of Kenya.

Our base is the capital city, Nairobi from where we set off to seek out different take off places by jeeps.

It takes about one week to reach the Indian Ocean from Nairobi as we stop at different places to fly. We cover about 1500 kilometres distance on the roads of Kenya leading through breath-taking terrains while we meet the aborigines just like massai, kikuyu and samburu people.
