Vaccinations and malaria pills.

The yellow fever vaccaniation is only needed when you have been to one of the yellow feaver nations. Be aware that you need to take the vaccin eight days before departure. In Paje there has never been any signs of malaria. That’s why people don’t swallow the pills against malaria on the island. The yellow fever vaccination is only required if you have been in a yellow fever area last year. Please note that you need to check this 8 days before departure! If you want to go safari in Tanzania then it is advisable to take some pills along preferably the day pil Malerone. Always consult your GP about any vaccinations if needed like: DTP, hepatitis A and B, etc.. Take malaria pills at your own risk with you or leave it at home!


Most people fly with Jetair or Tui from Brussels / Amsterdam to Zanzibar. If you fly with another company, the luggage conditions are also mentioned on your flight ticket.


There will be a pick up at the airport (for additional fee) You can recognize it by the kiteactive flag or logo.  Op het vliegveld staat er een taxi voor u klaar. Deze is te herkennen door het zichtbaar dragen van een KiteActive logo of de tekst KiteActive. If you do not recognize anyone, please contact one of the above phone numbers. Make sure you send us your flight data and flight number on time!

Which kites should I take with me?

If you have your own kitesurf material, we advise to bring your big kite with you. This saves a lot of money, becouse you don’t have to rent one.

Food and drinks

KiteActive offers a catering service aan. This means that we have a local private chef that cooks breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drinks and dinner are exclusive. You can join and pay at our instructors / managers at the end of the holiday.


You will need a English adapter at Zanzibar. You can buy the English adapter at the island for around 10 to 15 euros. There is a change that the electricity will turnoff, that is because it’s Africa 😉
