How can Tanzania be reached?
There are three international airports that connect Tanzania with the rest of the world. These are:
Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO)
located approximately 1 hour from Arusha and Moshi Town
entry-point for safari goers for a Northern Tanzania Safari and climbers for Mt. Kilimanjaro & Meru
Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR)
located in Dar es Salaam on the east coast
entry-point for safari goers for a Southern Tanzania Safari
Zanzibar International Airport (ZNZ)
located directly on the island of Zanzibar
entry-point mainly for travelers who consider Zanzibar as stand-alone beach destination
Another relevant airport on the mainland is Arusha Airport (ARK), which is only 20 minutes from the city center of Arusha. However, this airport is mainly used for domestic flights within Tanzania – especially for connecting to the National Parks or off-shore-islands Mafia, Pemba and Zanzibar.
If you are looking to combine your Tanzania safari with a beach holiday in Zanzibar, then it is best to arrange your arriving flight to the mainland (either Kilimanjaro or Dar es Salaam – depending on your safari) and your departing flight from Zanzibar in order to avoid additional flights within the country.
