Tanzania is easily reached via frequent air connections. There are direct and one-stop flights from overseas to Dar-es-Salaam, Kilimanjaro (near Arusha) and Zanzibar Island.

√ Arusha town is the starting point for Tanzania's most popular Northern Safari Circuit. Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) is situated next to Africa's highest mountain in the northeast of Tanzania. This airport is a different one than the smaller Arusha Airport (8 kilometers west of Arusha), which handles domestic flights only. Other airports handling regional flights are Mtwara Airport and Mwanza International Airport.

√ Tanzania's main airport is Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), located 13 kilometers southwest of Dar-es-Salaam. This airport is the entry-point for visitors to the southern parks.

Zanzibar International Airport (ZNZ) is the main airport in the Zanzibar Archipelago and is located on Unguja Island. It is about 5 kilometers south of Zanzibar City, the capital of Zanzibar. Although it's a small airport, it handles frequent charter flights from East Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.




Travelling from Europe to Tanzania, most people have a stopover in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). KLM is the only airline with direct daily flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport (approximately 8,5 hours) and from Dar-es-Salaam to Amsterdam (approximately 9,5 hours). This route is used a lot by travellers from the US and Canada as well. Alternatives with other airlines have stopovers in Doha, Cairo and Nairobi in Kenya. We advise you to take a direct flight if possible, because it's the fastest way to get there and you are more rested when you start your safari. Besides, you don't want to lose valuable days in case of a delay missing your connecting flights.

Moving on from Arusha or Dar-es-Salaam you can fly or drive between reserves, or you can opt to do a bit of both. Although the drives from one National Park to another is part of the experience, you might want to save time by flying instead of driving. Especially in the southern part of Tanzania the distances between the game reserves are big. Taking a small plane can be a good alternative and also be a part of the African experience. We can advise you on what would be best for your itinerary and budget.

When you want to combine the two great safari countries Tanzania and Kenya, it's possible to fly from or to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi. This Kenyan airport is the biggest hub in east and central Africa. Lots of airlines worldwide have direct daily flights to and from Nairobi. However you choose to travel, we will pick you up from the airport and arrange all further transportation as part of your safari package.
