Additionally, apart from booking individual holidays to you personal dates (depending on the wind season), we offer Event-Group vacation on certain fixed dates and a limited number of participants, e.g. Kite Safari BrasilWave-Kite Camps with world champion Mitu Monteiro on Cape Verde, All You Can Learn Event in Egypt or the KiteWorldWide Camp in Cape Town.

The special tour operator runs six KiteWorldWide Centers around the globe. Additionally come the two hotels in Ulcinj and Cape Town. A survey from 2013 displays that KiteWorldWide has achieved being chosen as the most popular Kitesurfing tour operator.

The special tour operator runs his own kitesurfing station in Zanzibar with German speaking instructors. Therefore the company is well-placed concerning developments in running a kite school or in teaching kitesurfing.
