Getting to Africa and Tanzania

Tanzania is slowly increasing the number of international airlines for its customized safari, tour and holiday tourism, operating flights to either Kilimanjaro International Airport (near Arusha) or Dar es Salaam International Airport, as well as Nairobi International Airport in Kenya. Tanzania Wildlife Safaris.Com specializes in customized east African and group safaris (including tented safaris), tours and customised holidays in Tanzania.

Useful travel info

All our customized east African safaris, tours and holidays packages in Northern Tanzania start and finish in Arusha / Moshi. The Kilimanjaro International Airport is about 40 miles from Arusha and receives daily KLM flights from Europe via Amsterdam and Nairobi in Kenya.

Since the KLM flights continue to Dar-es-Salaam, it is possible to arrange customized safaris, tours or holidays with an arrival at Kilimanjaro and departure from Dar-es-Salaam or visa versa. This is particularly useful for those wishing to include a visit to magical Zanzibar Island as customised island safaris, tours or holidays ad-ons.

The following carriers also operate to Tanzania:
British Airways fly directly to Dar es Salaam Tanzania from Gatwick. Air Tanzania and South African Airways from Johannesburg International to Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. Other carriers operate to Tanzania via Europe: Swiss Air from Zurich to Dar es Salaam; Gulf Air to Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar via Muscut and Abu Dhabi; Emirates to Dar es Salaam via Dubai. Tanzania can also be reached via African gateways served by Air Tanzania, Air Zimbabwe, Egypt Air, Ethiopian Air Lines, Kenya Airways and South African Airways.

Arusha is a great deal closer to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, than what it is to Dar-es-Salaam. The number of airlines and frequency of flights into Nairobi in Kenya, is much greater than those into Kilimanjaro International in Tanzania, and the prices more competitive for our customised safaris, tours and holidays.
