The Main Airports in Tanzania

Tanzania is widely known because of its great nature with many beautiful national parks and reserves. You can also call Tanzania as the Land of Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and the Serengeti. You can easily get to Tanzania without any problem, thanks to its three international airports served by numerous airlines, including European ones. To these are added an important number of smaller airports and runways for domestic and private flights.

The choice of the airport or airports for arrival and departure essentially depends on the circuit and the type of holiday you have chosen. Below I describe those three international airports. The plane represents an interesting means of transport essential for tourists within Tanzania, thanks to the numerous stopover points distributed throughout the territory. The most important parks, such as Tarangire, Manyara or Serengeti, but also the less explored parks such as Selous, Mikumi, Ruaha, Katavi or Mahale, all have their own landing strip.

If you opt for a Fly-In safari, you will fly from one park to another, while the guides will pick you up at the foot of the plane and take care of your holiday, the transfer from the lodge to the parks and the organization of the safari (photosafari, travel excursions by boat or on foot trekking).
