International Flight Routing

Your private, custom-tailored itinerary is based upon a Delta / KLM Airlines arrival into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). Kilimanjaro, which is next to the small town of Arusha, is the launching point for all Tanzania safaris. The daily Delta / KLM Airlines flight from the U.S. to Kilimanjaro (via Amsterdam) is the most convenient and efficient flight routing available. The flight routing consists of two segments. The first segment is from your departure city in the U.S. direct to Amsterdam. The second segment is from Amsterdam non-stop to Kilimanjaro.

Besides our main Africa Dream Safaris office in Arusha, we have affiliate offices in both Nairobi and Dar es Salaam to facilitate transfers, overnight layovers and connecting flights to Kilimanjaro to begin your safari. Starting in 2013, Turkish Airlines and Qatar Airways now offer non-stop flights on a regular basis from Istanbul and Doha to Kilimanjaro.
