FLYING TO/FROM ARUSHA, TANZANIA (KILIMANJARO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT)
Africa VIP Travel will gladly make round-trip airline reservations for you from your hometown to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha, Tanzania. Travel to Arusha is normally on an airline that connects to a city where you can fly KLM to Arusha via Amsterdam. Due to the infrequent service and heavy demand for KLM flights to Kilimanjaro, we strongly suggest you book your tickets months in advance. Full payment for airline tickets are due 7 days from the time of booking.

Also, it is possible to connect a Walking safari and a Wildlife Safari — with the Walking Safari after the Wildlife Safari. However, this itinerary does not include climbing. A Zanzibar Island Tour can be added after any other trip itinerary.
