You should have no real difficulty getting to Tanzania as there are regular flights to Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro from South Africa, Europe and the United States. British Airways, KLM, Swiss Air, Air India, Egypt Air, Gulf Air, Kenya Airways and South African Airways (among others) fly into the cosmopolitan capital or Kilimanjaro International Airport, which is situated between Moshi and Arusha.
From either airport you can catch an internal flight to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Zanzibar and most other destinations in Tanzania. Of course, the northern circuit of Tanzania is closer to Nairobi than Dar es Salaam so you can fly into the Kenyan capital and catch a flight or shuttle service from there.
We can organise a road transfer if you want to see the sights and sounds of the country first hand and you can hire a 4x4 to get off the beaten track and see the country yourself. There is also the option of travelling by train through this fascinating country or sailing down the coast from Kenya on a traditional dhow!
