Don't just dream it, DO IT! The magic happened on 16 September 2011 when a group from Southern Africa successfully paraglided from Kilimanjaro. Andrew Smith (South Africa), Chris Lotter (Namibia) and tandem pilot Pierre Carter (South Africa) with passenger Marianne Schwankhart (South Africa). Thank you to Tanzanian Authorities for making this possible!
Other team members on this expedition were Jeff Wishnie (USA), James Braid (SA), Jeremy Holdcroft (SA), Alistair Stuart (SA), Linda Willemse (SA), Guy Pitman (SA), Samantha Braid (SA), Kyle O'Donogue (SA), Matthew Rosmarin (SA), Samuel Rousseau (NAM), Dawson Chonjo, Steven Mtui, Joel Maya & Joseph Bareli along with 55 other mountain crew inclusive of porters, cooks etc. Linda Willemse started negotiating for the rights to legally fly from Kilimanjaro back in 2001 with Pierre Carter joining forces in later years for his 7Summits7Flights quest. They received the official permission from the Tanzanian Authorities in 2010 and a year later the whole team stood on the summit of Africa's tallest mountain - Kilimanjaro!
