Hakuna Shida Guesthouse Tanzania Kitesurf Camp Program

Start your morning with a yoga session with an experienced teacher before you take on the waters to learn kiting with qualified instructors or relax on the white sandy beach with crystal-clear water. The guesthouse also has a pool where you can chill with a book, and you can enjoy their restaurant which offers lunch, snacks, smoothies, iced coffee, and Wi-Fi.

Location

This kitesurf camp will take place on Paje beach. Paje is a village on the Tanzania island of Unguja, which is a part of Zanzibar. It is located on the southeast coast between the villages of Bwejuu and Jambiani. The fishermen’s village is situated on a beautiful strip of seashore. You can find small shops and two supermarkets near the cross road. Further inside the village, you can find more small shops, where you can buy souvenirs, especially vivid-colored paintings in Zanzibarian style, handicraft, and various coconut products.

Paje is built in traditional Swahili style, so you can make short trips through long dusty “streets” and enjoy the local cordial atmosphere. Local people usually spend the whole day in their usual work, gathering seaweed, making ropes of coconut fibers, or repairing or building boats (dhows). If you want to take photos, please be kind and ask before you take a shoot. For many locals, this is a pleasant source of income.

As Paje is famous kitesurfing center, most tourists are either keen on kitesurfing there, or they have a possibility to learn the basics of this popular sport. The lagoon is one of the best places in the world to learn kiteboarding. The first reason is that a very consistent side-onshore wind is blowing most of the year. The second reason is that the lagoon is shallow during low tide and has a sandy bottom. Lastly, the reef protects the lagoon from waves.
