The kite spot in Diani is suitable for all levels, with strong, consistent wind between 18-26 knots. The Indian Ocean is warm so there is no need for a wetsuit but we do recommend a long sleeve rash guard as well as a cap and sunglasses (with an elastic band) for protection from the sun. At low tide the water is shallow with a nice, sandy bottom and flat-choppy conditions.

Kenya is an amazing kiteboarding destination with strong, consistent wind and beautiful white sand beaches. Though kiting is one of the greatest attractions, the country has so much more to offer. These wild lands are home to incredible wildlife including monkeys, rhinos, leopards, lions, elephants and many more! The crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling to the coral reef just offshore of the resort or plan a day boat trip to explore and relax on pearly beaches. Diani has several stylish places to eat or enjoy a cocktail in front of the sea where you will experience an amazing culture filled with many colourful tribes.
This camp is dedicated to all levels of kiters, those who want to learn from the beginning or those who already kite. We will ensure you progress your skills no matter what level you are. Your coach will give you lessons and tips throughout the day and in the evening will debrief and prepare you for the next days session.
This camp provides an incredible atmosphere of like-minded travellers supporting and encouraging one another to progress through new skills and tricks. Take some time off kiteboarding to explore the marine and wildlife Kenya has to offer. The evenings will be spent together, enjoying BBQs with fresh seafood from the local fishermen - who will prepare everything for us, followed by cocktails on the beach. This shared experience will build lifelong friendships on and off the water.
Kenya is getting more and more popular as a kiteboarding destination. With long, uncrowded beaches, crystal clear waters and strong, steady winds it’s hard to beat! Low tide is the ideal time for beginner lessons when the water is shallow enough to sand on the sandy bottom. Radio helmets are used for advanced lessons. All gear is provided for lessons and available for rent if you are not in lessons.
Besides kitesurfing, there will always be other activities to enjoy. Pack your mask and snorkel to explore the incredible sea life. Just offshore there is a coral reef home to starfish, colourful fish shoals, turtles and even dolphins. Flora and fauna lovers should visit the wildlife kingdom at the base of Kilimanjaro.
Kenya’s most popular tourist attractions are the picturesque national parks. You will get a chance to see the breathtaking African wildlife up close up on a 2 day safari through the Kenyan Savannah. From the car windows you can see elephants, giraffes, lions, leopards, zebras, buffalo, rhinos, monkeys, ostriches, a variety of exotic birds and many, many more. This is a once in a lifetime experience! The safari trip includes food, drinks and one night in the camp inside the park.
The flights are not included in the trip, so you need to book flights to Mombasa airport. We are more than happy to help and advise what flight is the best. The most popular airlines are TUI, Rainbow, Itaka, Emirates, Turkish Airlines, KLM, Ethiopian. Qatar and many more. If you plan to take your own kite gear remember to check the price for the sport bag. The tourist visa cost 40E upon arrival and we will arrange airport transfer to Diani (about 2 hours from the airport).
You will be staying in beach front African-style bungalows just in front of the kite spot. Each house has a fully equip kitchen, dining area, toilet and bathroom. The houses range in size from 2-5 beds with a terrace garden view, free wifi and parking. Food is not included, though it is possible to order breakfast for the duration of your stay.
