How do I get to Tanzania?

The easiest way to reach Moshi is to fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO).

Alternative ways of getting to Moshi are buses from Nairobi or Dar Es Salaam, taking anywhere from 7-9 hours.

Our climbs (unless otherwise requested) have lodging the night before & after built into the itinerary. Note, if your flight arrives after 7:00 pm, by the time you go through customs and immigrations, collect your luggage and take the 45 minute drive to your hotel in Moshi, it can be 9:30 pm or later.

If your travels to Tanzania involve a lengthy flight and major time change, we recommend arriving a day early to give your body time to adjust to the time change and recuperate from the flight.

It also gives you a cushion in case your flight is cancelled or your luggage is delayed.
