Getting To Kilimanjaro

Before you start your hiking escapade to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, you will need to establish How To Get To Kilimanjaro, and the best mode of transport to suit your itinerary or tour. Travellers flying from the UK, the US, Australia or Canada and other parts of the world have a few options to explore, the most popular being the Kilimanjaro Airport.

Each of these options should be carefully considered based on your budget and how much time you have to explore Tanzania before, or after your Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Most importantly, don’t be tricked into booking the cheapest flight without considering if there might be a catch; including long layover times, additional visas or transport arrangements.

Before you start Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, you will have to establish how to get there, and the best mode of transport for you. Getting To Kilimanjaro, you need to fly to Kilimanjaro International Airport which is served daily by many airlines. The closest major cities to Kilimanjaro National Park are the city of Arusha and the town of Moshi. Tanzania has three major international airports - Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro is of course the most convenient, standing only 42km away from the mountain.

One of the best ways to find cheap flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport is by flying into Nairobi in Kenya. You can travel by road from Kenya after flying in there. There are numerous bus and shuttle options for you to take you into Moshi or Arusha. But the roads can be quite rough at times.
