The beautiful island Zanzibar is located in the Indian Ocean. It is famous for its beautiful beaches with crystal-clear, turquoise water. Our spot has shallow water and is therefore also perfect for beginners.

We found the perfect spot and accommodation for your kitesurf holiday at Zanzibars east coast in Jambiani. The lodges are directly in front of your kitesurf spot and exclusive for KiteWorldWide guests. It is on a beautiful private beach with a close-by mangrove forest.

The Red Monkey Lodge is completely renovated and contains of nine rooms which are in small bungalows with palm roofs. Coral Rock Hotel is situated at the other side of the bay, and is priced higher with even more comfort and a stunning sea-facing pool.

The kitespot is directly in front of the lodge. Because of a 2km long sandbank we have a huge lagoon with shallow water for instructions and trainings but also for freestyler and advanced riders.

Since June 2012, there is a KiteWorldWide owned, VDWS licensed kitesurf school on Zanzibar, Jambiani, with multilingual instructors and new gear from Core & Best Kiteboarding.

The kiteseasons are from June till September and from December till March. The wind direction is always sideshore.

This small, amazing island in front of the east coast of Tanzania does not only have beautiful beaches and coasts but also beautiful dive sites and lots of alternatives activities to do.

Zanzibar is also famous for its huge variety of spices which gave Zanzibar the nickname: “Spice – island”.

The beautiful historic centre of Zanzibars capital, Stone Town is also worth a visit. Freddy Mercurys home town is affected by small alleys and coral-stone made colonial houses. You will also find some small bars and shops.

Kitesurfing on Zanzibar

Kitesurfing Spot

This exclusive kitesurf spot is located directly in front of our lodge at the east cost of Zanzibar in Jambiani. It provides perfect conditions for beginners, advanced riders and freestyler.

Here, a 2 km long sandbank forms a large shallow water lagoon, a perfect place for our lessons and trainings. We use equipment from CORE (GTS2 and XR2), Brunotti Boards and ION gear. The VDWS licensed instructor and our partner school, KiteWorldWide Center Zanzibar / Jambiani speaks English and German.

Only 5 km north of your “homespot” you will find the popular Spot: Pajé. The Water is shallow too. During the summer advanced kiters are able to do a downwinder to Pajé.

The winter kitesurf season lasts from December till March. During the summer you can kitesurf from June until October. The wind is always sideshore and during the kitesurf seasons really reliable.

This spot is strongly regulated by tides, but it is also possible to kitesurf under low tide conditions after a short walk on the beach. During high tide launching the kite can be more difficult, that’s why we recommend kiting during high tide only for advanced kiters.

Because of small solitary corals it’s recommended to wear neoprene shoes.

Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar/Jambiani

The Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar/Jambiani is on a beautiful, small beach surrounded by forests. Since the early December of 2012, it has been fully renovated and is under new German-Italian management.

The beach, which is also our kite spot, is directly in front of the lodge. You can literally go straight from your bed to your board.

The Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar/Jambiani is a great mixture between the local and new customs. Those of you who are looking for a non-touristy place, come here. With the relaxed, quiet atmosphere the Red Monkey Lodge Zanzibar/Jambiani rightfully own the motto “barefoot and lazy.”

Beach House 1 & 2

Beach House 1 is located immediately next to the bungalows and thus also directly on our kite spot. It includes a living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and terrace. The terrace of the house provides you with a beautiful view of our spot.
