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.
