Getting to Tanzania
Arusha is the start off point for most safaris. Kilimanjaro International Airport is the most convenient port of entry and exit, located just 45 minutes from Arusha Town and only 35 minutes drive from our permanent camp where your first night upon arrival is spent. The airport is served from Europe by KLM/Northwest, which flies daily from Amsterdam.
If one were looking for something more budget, an option would be to fly into Nairobi International Airport (JumboKenyatta) where you would have to purchase a Kenyan transfer Visa for $25 (US Citizen $50). Thereafter depart from the airport with the so-called Impala Shuttle (Kaskazi Horse Safaris can book this for you prior to arrival). Theshuttle will cross the border between Kenya and Tanzania, where you will have to purchase a Tanzanian Visa for $50 (US citizen $100). The drive altogether is about 5 hours, before you reach Impala Hotel, based in the middle of Arusha, where a vehicle from Kaskazi Horse Safaris will be arranged to pick you up.
A visa is required for entry into Tanzania from most countries. The visa may be purchased at the Tanzanian port of entry. It is 50 USD per person ($100 for US citizen). If you are flying in via Kenya, remember the transfer visa fee of 25 USD ($50 US citizen) on top of the Tanzanian visa fee of 50 USD ($100 US citizen).
