Paje by kite

Our legendary kite centre, Paje by Kite, is located on the beachfront along with The Beach House, the perfect spot to relax and chill out on the beach enjoying our beans sunbeds, Italian gelato, big salad and light meals.

Zanzibar, and Paje in particular, is among one of the top destinations in the world and in Africa to learn how to kitesurf.

The reef is far off-shore and offers beautiful waves for experienced kite surfer. The knee-deep lagoon, steady mild wind and flat water make the perfect spot to go strapless and to learn and improve new tricks and skills: absolutely perfect for beginners and freestylers.

And if you think Kite surfing is not enough, we have an amazing Yoga School too: the Re-Hub yoga school of Zanzibar!

Kite surfing is one of our passions. Paje by Kite was the first Kite School in Paje founded over 10 years ago by a bunch of enthusiastic friends. The motto has always been enjoy, have fun and deliver a personalized top quality kite surfing tuition. We definitely prefer to focus on private lessons, the most effective way to have you quickly on board and ready to ride … no doubt what you also want … but we also operate group courses and the best combination of mixed lessons.

At the end of each season (September and mid-February) we sell our used gear for a very convenient price.
