Getting To 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.

Useful Information:

All our customised 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 customised safaris, tours or holidays with 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-on.

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 Muscat 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.

Charter flights:

Precision Air runs scheduled flights between Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Nairobi (Kenya) and Zanzibar, which can also be utilised for your customised safari, tour and holiday itineraries.

Precision Air schedule between Nairobi (Yomo Kenyatta Airport) and Kilimanjaro airport.
