Getting to Tanzania

Dar-es-Salaam, Kilimanjaro (near Arusha) can be reached via direct and one stop flights from overseas. The starting point for the popular Northern Safari Circuit in Tanzania is Arusha Town, which is located 46km/29mi east of Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). The main airport in Tanzania, Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) is located 13km/8mi from Dar-es-Salaam. It is also the entry-point to travelers who are visiting the southern parks in Tanzania. You can fly or drive between the reserves of Dar-es-Salaam. Some flights out of Arusha depart from Kilimanjaro International Airport. However, most flights to the reserves leave from the small Arusha Airport (ARK) which is located 8km/5mi west of the city. In most cases, the tour operator is in charge of picking travelers up from the airport and arranging all other transportation as a part of the agreed safari package.
