We came to Zanzibar on our honeymoon and discovered that kite boarding is one of the 'things to do'. So after doing some research, I decided to go with Airborne Kite Centre because they had the best prices in Paje. I corresponded with Jan for a week before we arrived and he was so helpful and quick to answer every... More

Spent a month kiting in Paje with Airborne in August 2014. Jan has an amazing wealth of experience & knowledge of kiting, surfing & enjoying everything Zanzibar has to offer. For experienced kiters he always is keen to arrange epic downwinders in the lagoon & along the reef with nice waves. If you were keen im sure airborne could arrange... More

I enjoyed the time with you guys! A truly motivated instructor and quality gear brought me from zero to level 2 in three days, delayed only by wind and tide. A nice place to hang out too, including food and drinks, even more if you enjoy some music all day long. I'd come back anytime! Christoph, from Switzerland

I did several individual classes with Jan, the main instructor, in July 2013. He was very professional and friendly and has a lot of patience (not so obvious after trying several teachers around the world..). I would defenitely recommend this school for kite surfing classes. Paje is also an excellent spot for beginners. I hope to come back to Paje... More

They really enjoy teaching so that I felt highly comftable with all the new things. The equipment (kites and boards for every wind and every level) looked almost new. We... More

Thanks for the great experience. I have stayed only 3days in zanzibar of which one day with no wind at all. The other 2 days we had enough wind to go kiting! The staff is very friendly and professional. I have chosen for Airborne kite centre as their response to my kite enquiry was the most personalised and friendliest. If... More

At around 60 years of age I came to the sport a little later than many of Airborne Kite Centre’s customers. This may explain why at the end of their 3 day introductory course I was still swallowing seawater and crashing their kites. But never say die, and I returned to Paje in Zanzibar a few months later for another... More
