A nerve-wracking experience for the adventure-seeking traveler, skydiving over the main Zanzibar Island of Unguja will most certainly be that one leap of faith you’ll never forget. Undeniably one of the scariest escapades, jumping off a plane at 12,000ft above sea level will give you a whole new perspective on life itself with a guarantee of one of the most exhilarating, and liberating experiences imaginable.
In partnerships with skydiving experts, Nisimulie Africa presents a unique opportunity to enjoy the African sky in a whole different way for both first-time jumpers and the old-timers. Tandem skydives are offered for first-timers and involve being strapped on to a very experienced and fully qualified Skydive Instructor, and together you will jump with that instructor whilst they take all the controls and give you all the exhilaration of a skydive in a very safe and comfortable manner.
Zanzibar Island will offer some of the most incredible views at every stage of the jump, including that long, slow glorious ride back to the white sandy stretches of the beach to the northwest.

Your driver will pick you from your hotel and drive you to the skydive center. We generally recommend getting there 15 minutes earlier than the time booked. Your driver will walk you and hand you over to the skydive office where the skydive team will then get you prepped for the jump.

We recommend wearing comfortable clothing. Shorts, trousers or even jeans are fine, with a tee-shirt or other top that is not too baggy. We suggest you wear a pair of sports trainers or lace-up shoes; we will be falling at 200km/h and we don’t want them to blow off your feet!! Jumpsuits are available should you prefer. Kindly inform us in advance should you require a jumpsuit. Everything else that you need will be provided.

Please bring your passport or your national ID card; it is a legal requirement that a copy is made and kept on record upon your arrival.

You will be with us for about two hours. When you get to the skydive center, you will be required to fill in some basic forms and undergo a pre-jump briefing and training to familiarize you with the experience which will take about 30 minutes. Once this is complete, you will be suited up and when ready you will head up to the airstrip, which is about 10 minutes away. If you have any family or friends coming to watch your amazing jump, they should stay at the Skydive Centre and relax in the bar, restaurants, or sun loungers that are abundant on-site. Accompanied by your skydive instructor, you get in the jump plane and take a 20-minute flight to climb up to our skydive altitude and enjoy the incredible views over the Zanzibar coastline and the Indian Ocean. Onboard your instructor will do all the last checks as he/she gets you both strapped up together. Then, WE JUMP!!! After a 45-second free fall skydive and 10 minutes of parachute flight, you will land gently back onto the beach at the Skydive Centre to lots of smiling faces from the spectators around. If you want a video made, we will produce it while you recover over a cold drink and you will have it on a USB drive which we provide before you leave.

COVID – 19: Nisimulie Africa SOP’s

In light of the world opening up slowly amidst the current pandemic, we have been preparing to welcome tourists back to Tanzania by making changes to the way we provide our services. New SOPs are in place for every touch point and guest experience that characterizes your stay with us as your esteemed hosts. Our SOPs will be updated in line with the Government of Tanzania’s instructions to the tourism and hospitality industry. Our priority is to ensure that we provide the safest possible environment for our guests while providing top-notch safari experiences.

 

Standard Operating Procedures

1.     To keep social distancing, safari vehicles with 6-window seats will be redesigned to take only 4 people in the passenger cabin. Safari vehicles with 6-window seats will still be available for families wishing to travel together in one vehicle

2.   The driver-guide will be at hand to oversee guests observe the recommended physical distancing at park entry gates, museums, picnic sites, and while checking in at accommodation facilities.

3.   City transfer and safari vehicles will be regularly disinfected before picking up clients, especially the high-touch surfaces and seats

4.   Sanitizers (anti-microbial agents) will be provided in the vehicle for guests' use

5.   The driver-guide will take necessary personal protection precautions at all times. Guests are encouraged to come with their own masks; packaged masks will be available at an extra cost.

6.   Health condition of driver-guides will be monitored for not less than a week before being assigned to take clients on safari, including measuring body oxygen level (recommended 95% and above) and body temperature not exceeding 37.5 degrees centigrade.

7.   There will be three health centers dedicated to COVID-19 rapid response and support network; one center will be in Arusha town (Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre), one in Karatu near Ngorongoro, and the third in central Serengeti at Seronera. Ambulances will be on standby.

8.   For clients needing more medical attention, Nisimulie Africa Tours and Travel will arrange evacuation by Flying Doctors. The Flying Doctors package covers evacuation to a hospital in Nairobi. We can also arrange evacuation to Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam, a fine facility with high rate of recovery for COVID-19 patients. The evacuation to Dar es Salaam will involve some extra charges to be met by the patient. Clients are required to have medical insurance to cover hospitalization expenses. 

9.   The welcome briefing to guests will include details of our safety and hygiene measures in place and what is required of guests during their stay (including the use of masks and gloves and keeping safe distances from other guests).

10. Not limiting these procedures to ourselves, we work with other third-party suppliers who ensure and adhere to the set international standards of travel as defined by the Ministry of Tourism and WHO.
