• “Perfect small kite center”

    Excellent spot without the crowd like in other places. I only rented, but the owner, Leo, gave me always valuable tips. Leo was always replying me fast to my E-mails which i previously sent, not like other centers which never replied to any inquiry. The center is small and has therefore limited kite material, better to check with them before...

  • “Best place to kite in Jambiani!”

    Great spot to start kitesurfing. The kite school is well located with short distances to various hotels and restaurants. Leo and Dina are great guys! I had really good kite lessons - will definitely come back again!

  • “The best place to learn to kite!”

    I did a 3-day course with at Uhuru around New years and it was awesome! Dina is the best teacher! I went from total beginner to being able to go downwind, upwind, launching and landing in 3 days. In my time at Uhuru it wasn´t crowded once. I´m buying my first kite now and i´ll come back to Uhuru sometime...

  • “Amazing kitesurfing in paradise”

    Leo, the owner of the shop, is a very good guy. He is very honest and tries to give you the best surfing expierence possible at Zanzibar. His heart is kitesurfing and he transfers it to his customers. In Jambiani you have similar kitesurfing possibilities as in Paje but way less crowded and way more relaxed.

  • I didn't even know I liked kite surfing until I met the instructor Leo who persuaded me to have a go. The first hour was free and after 2 hours I was hooked! Leo is an excellent instructor, who explains things very clearly and easily. The beach at Jambiani is easily not only one of the best and most beautiful beaches to learn kite surfing but to do it if you're already a pro as it's pretty much free from the crowds of tourists that flock to more established places. Can't recommend the experience enough and can't wait to go back. See you next year Leo!

  • The location is absolutely stunning, especially the sun sets. I'm a complete beginner and for my first ever lesson the staff made me feel really comfortable and safe, the main guy I was in contact with - Leo - was brilliant, I felt completely safe and looked after, he was really funny and friendly - highly recommend. Will definitely be returning next year! Massive thank you to Leo for turning me into a kite surfing pro and making my trip awesome!

  • I took there a 3 day course and can recommend it to everyone. There are 3 differentiating factors of this school: 1) it has better rates than the schools in the neighborhood (in Paje or the other school in the far end of Jambiani) - because it is new and promoting itself 2) you are treated individually - unlike the other classes/schools were there are lots of schools and many people in the 'class'. I got individual lessons from a really good instructor - Leo Holland 3) the area where Leo is teaching is a nice lagoon free of other kitesurfers - you get perfect learning conditions with no risk of running into other kitesurfers.

  • Leo, the instructor, has a great talent : he is patient, he often has a kind word before an instruction and he is really a great kitesurfer. My wife and i took a 3 days lesson, 3 hours a day, and at the end we were almost able to practice alone. Plus, the location is awesome and we were the only two people in the water, so no fear of colision with someone else. What a first kitesurf experience !

  • I did a private course in Zanzibar, with the owner, I think his name was Lee. I have to say that I was a little skeptical at first, seeing as it was a relatively new company and there were limited staff, but I was impressed. Lee was very professional, the equipment was in great condition and I got onto the board in no time. I would definitely recommend this kite centre over the busier ones if personal service is important for you.

  • Great recommendation for people to learn the kite . Shallow water , not too strong wind and genuinely a nice very competent teacher . We had personal lessons from the owner Leo ! Great job . Very quiet and you always have a good sense of security ! A friend was also there , who could already kite well . He was thrilled by the upstream waves ! Leo also had great tips for eating out or evenings if there is a Beach Party ! Hopefully we can come back soon ! Cheers !

  • Since we did not want to kitesurf in yet quite full site Paje , we chose Jambiani and thus how it has turned out in retrospect , made ??the right choice . Man there is space without end , and Leo - the owner of the kite station not only offers courses for beginners and cracks, but is a valuable tips and tricks on the spot to the side . It also has the possibility hourly material locally and on a daily basis to rent . I've put together made ??him a down winder , 8 km away Paje and loved the emerald sea and the waves out on the reef .

Uhuru Kite Zanzibar as seen on IKSURF Magazine, The Kiteboarder Magazine and Adventure Travel Magazine, has a completely empty spot, with very few kiters; its only a little way from the popular Paje spot, but with the exact same conditions and no sea urchins its in fact a far better place to come for kitesurf training in Zanzibar.
