Paragliding on Mount Kilimanjaro

Paragliding from the Mount Kilimanjaro requires much planning and coordination. It is not an ordinary trekking expedition because together with usual arrangements, the organizers have to be especially attentive to monitoring weather forecasts, choosing a proper camping location and a starting point, as well taking proper equipment and gear, which is not normally present during the regular climbs.Kilimanjaro Paragliding

The key idea of the project is to paraglide from the highest point in the summit zone (5,700m +). Therefore, we need to set up the camp in the crater of the Mount Kilimanjaro 5700m, as it is by far the most convenient location. We have to stay there in advance before the wind would be favorable enough. Safety of the climbing crews is our highest priority, thus we recommend on the climbing route with the smoothest acclimatization transition. Furthermore, we doubled our usual oxygen supplies for this expedition to make sure that the participants would be able to stay in the crater as long as it might be necessary.

Also there are two options of paragliding in Kilimanjaro; one is flying from summit to the base camp or any down camp and other from the summit all the way to Moshi.

Secondly options require more process, since its unusual activities require getting a special permit from the park and aviation authorities. In this case, it is necessary to obtain approvals from the TANAPA (Tanzania National Parks Authority), KINAPA (Kilimanjaro National Park Authority), and the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority.

Note:Both options require getting permit from Kilimanjaro national park and Tanzania national park
