I spent 12 weeks doing a Zero to Hero Course with Airborne in 2011 and had an incredible time! On first arrival the location of the Zanzibar Kite Centre is breathtaking,a coconut tree lined white sand beach and turquoise blue flat lagoon in front of the centre which is perfect for beginners with the back drop of the waves breaking on the reef further out to sea. The centre is very well run and full of friendly staff and the tuition I got was extremely professional and I really progressed my riding further than I would have ever thought possible. I think this was down mainly to such a world class kiting location with safe consistent wind and the instruction I had. The traditional African fishing village of Paje is beautiful, about an hours drive across the island from the airport and capital (Stone Town) it's a slow paced and very relaxed dwelling and the locals are all very friendly and really teach you what life should be about, simplicity and Hakuna matata spirit (it means no worries). Its definitely a safe place and I never felt uncomfortable, even walking around at night. If you are looking for a Kiting holiday to progress your riding accompanied with a good dollop of culture on the side then really look no further. The Centre also offer regular downwinders and have plenty of trips going on for those occasional no wind days so your always entertained. If you are just looking to get into kiting like I was then I would definitely recommend Paje and Airborne as THE place to go! I am definitely returning next year as I have fallen in love with the place!Hopefully see you there, Jeremy!
