Tanzania's high terrain and gentle airflows make it perfect paragliding territory. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran, there's no better way to admire the country than by soaring over its lush, green hills and arid plains.
If you're accompanied by an instructor, there are numerous routes to consider. Permits to fly over national parks are supplied by most local organizations, but if you're looking to paraglide on your own, you'll need to request one from the Tanzanian government.
Set off from the Usambara Mountains in the northeast to fly over the country's densest submontane forest, or test your nerve with a flight from Mount Kilimanjaro’s peak. The latter is best for experienced paragliders, starting with a mulit-day ascent of Africa's tallest summit while carrying equipment, but no matter your ability your local agent will be able to help you plan the perfect high-adrenaline trip.
