One of the tour providers in Tanzania is now offering skydiving around Kilimanjaro. I have to say, it’s a great to see some new options for viewing Kilimanjaro that haven’t been thought up. It’s a great mountain that needs to be utilized in other ways besides climbing. Personally, I think it would be great to see Kilimanjaro, Meru and the Africa plains from the sky, although $399 seems a wee bit expensive.
My only issue with skydiving around Kilimanjaro is that you probably need to be doing your jump either around sunrise or sunset to get the best view of Kilimanjaro. Clouds cover the mountain most of the year during the day. I think I would opt for sunset skydive and afterwards finish off the day with a few Kilimanjaro beers.
