Skydiving in Kenya
Combine the exhilaration of sky-diving with a safari and a week of R+R on a tropical beach.
We are holding 2 boogies in 2005 - Mini-Boogie in March and 2 week Mega-Boogie in Oct/Nov.
We can also arrange sky-dives in Nairobi on an ad-hoc basis. We operate a Cessna 206 on weekends. Jumps are US$28. Equipment is available for hire at US$10 per jump.
