First, it’s the only event of its kind in the world! There’s nothing else like WOK – we offer an absolutely unique adventure, like no other that you’ll ever experience.
Second, by either participating in or donating to WOK, you’re helping us to improve the lives of thousands of Tanzanians! The fundraising money is used to build schools, deliver clean water projects and also focus on sustainable and environmentally restorative activities.
Third, for the vast majority of people, it’s the only way you would ever be able to legally access Mt Kilimanjaro for paragliding. The Tanzanian Government have always prohibited, and strictly police, flying from Mt Kilimanjaro – offenders who get caught can face years in Tanzanian jail and/or significant fines. These harsh penalties have always deterred most of the World’s Paragliding community from contemplating such risks. Wings Of Kilimanjaro, however, has been granted exclusive Paragliding Permits from Mt Kilimanjaro, in return for the guarantee of much needed Charity Money for Tanzanians in need.
