Getting To Tanzania

How to get to Tanzania

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 (KIA) is situated 46km/29mi east of Arusha. Tanzania’s main airport is Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) located 13km/8mi southwest of Dar es Salaam. The latter is the entry-point for visitors to the southern parks.

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. Some domestic flights out of Arusha will leave from Kilimanjaro International Airport, but most flights to reserves leave from the much smaller Arusha Airport (ARK) located 8km/5mi west of town. However you choose to travel, in most cases your local tour operator will pick you up from the airport and arrange all further transportation as part of your safari package.

    through Tarangire and Ngorongoro Nationalpark. We appreciated all the effort from Hildegard, the owner of the company, included our personal wishes and all in really fair prices. The driver Michael was a really very experienced guide; he was very friendly and a really good conversationalist with very good English. In addition, he was a very safe and prudent driver. We have seen a lot of animals up close and were overwhelmed by the beautiful nature. We would not hesitate to book again with Paradi…
