Getting There

Flights to Tanzania are all indirect with transit options including (but not limited to) Nairobi (Kenyan Airways), Amsterdam (KLM) or Doha (Qatar Airways), Dubai (Emirates), Muscat (Oman Air), and Istanbul (Turkish Airlines). British Airways operates a code share with Kenyan Airlines, flying to Nairobi before connecting to Dar Es Salaam. Oman Air also offers the option to fly direct from Zanzibar to Muscat.

Qatar Airways and KLM offer a flight via Doha and Amsterdam respectively direct to Kilimanjaro.

On arrival in Dar es Salaam we would recommend an overnight stay before heading out again to your chosen safari resort.

Onward travel is by small light aircraft from Dar es Salaam's domestic terminal. If overnighting in the capital additional time should be allowed to get to the airport as traffic can be very heavy at certain times of the day.

Southern Circuit
Stiegler's Gorge is the main airstrip servicing the Selous Game Reserve. The flight takes about 45 minutes from Dar es Salaam.

Northern Circuit
Arusha is considered the gateway to the Northern Circuit making it a popular first stop. Flight time is slightly longer, at approximately 1hr 30 minutes from Dar es Salaam. Other local airports include Seronera and Kilimanjaro which also offers a direct service from Doha.

Western Tanzania
For Ruaha, you can either fly from Dar Es Salaam which takes 1hr 30 minutes, or for the more adventurous you can start your safari early and take the 10 hour drive.

For those heading to Mahale, it is a 2 hour flight from either Dar Es Salaam or Arusha, followed by a boat/dhow ride of approximately 1hr 30 minutes.

On arrival and for the duration of your safari, either open top or open sided four wheel drive jeeps are usual.
