Kite Surfing in Zanzibar


We can arrange tuition for beginners or experienced surfers with a Kitesurfing centre. Kite surfing is available at

nearby beaches of Paje and Jambiani. Tuition is dependent on wind and surf condition. Paje Beach is set against a stunning

background of the endless blue Indian Ocean, beautiful white beaches and an African village, where the pace of life hasn’t

changed for over fifty years. The reef protects the inside waters, so the lagoon inside the reef is flat, with shallow knee-deep water, perfect for beginners and experts alike. The reef itself offers amazing waves for the more experienced kite surfer. 

The conditions for kitesurfing are usually perfect during the season, which is from June 10th until October 10th

and December 10th until March 10th.  The best months for beginners are from mid-June until mid-October and the end of December until mid-March. The wind is always side onshore. The best months for experts are from mid-June until mid-September and the end of December until the end of February.  While the above listed time-frames are the norm, variations do occur. Therefore we do recommend you to check the wind history on the island. The water temperature is always over

24 degrees so your wetsuit can stay at home, unless you are easily prone to coldness which can occasionally happen in Africa’s winter months (June-September).  At most you would need a 2mm shorty.
