Hello,

We want to make a kite trip for the last 10 days of September. Zanzibar seems to be a good spot for September but I have some doubts because its a late season (mid-October is the end of the season). And also the graph in need2kite don't seem like an efficient time period for a kite. http://need2kite.com/location/zanzibar/#whentogo

If you have any experience or knowledge about late September in Zanzibar, I'll be very happy if you share it with me. :)

Thanks!!

I was there in Jan. Although Windguru was showing 8-12 knots, I had 10 out of 11 days on the water. I just had a one day break. Morning with a 12 m Park, afternoon 10 m2.

Thanks!!! So, I think there are two beaches, Paje and Kiwengwa. Which one is better for September?

I looked it up on need2kite website and probably Paje is better because it is also suggested to kite in October at Paje but not for Kiwengwa. Correct?

well I don't know how scientific is my method but these are the last five years wind statistics for the time period that I want to spend at Paje. I am not good at analyzing windguru stats but it seems like a picture of "avoid!" isn't it ? :D

If it were me, looking at those stats, I would be looking for somewhere else to go :(

but that's not to say that is the best choice, as thermals could possibly come into effect
This is where you rely on other peoples experience of the area \ spot.

So far you had one say good & one say bad

I would ask the locals, but be mindful of their replies as they may have ulterior motives, i.e. run a business and they want your money
