Attention thrill-seekers and nature enthusiasts, adventure is calling with cheap flights to Tanzania now taking you to the heart of Eastern Africa. Home to 16 national parks containing some of the world’s rarest animals, prepare yourself for the most beautiful, untamed scenery and extraordinary wildlife that the continent has to offer. That’s saying nothing of the majesty of Kilimanjaro, the bustling splendour of urban hubs like Dar es Salaam, or the stunning beaches of Zanzibar island, all guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
Spring is the cheapest time of year to fly to Tanzania as it’s the country’s wet season, though the rain can make the outdoor activities a little tricky. The weather is driest in summer, perfect for exploring Tanzania’s abundance of national parks, though prices tend to be a little higher. Still, the range of activities offered in summer are worth the expense, with safari tours and the opportunity to swim with dolphins just two of the amazing experiences awaiting you. The Mzalendo Halisi Music Festival brings together local musicians and artists every summer and is worth a visit to witness this incredible celebration of culture.
Getting to Tanzania couldn’t be easier with cheap flights operating year round from airports across the UK, with only a single stop required en route. AirFrance and Kenya Airways offer flights from cities such as London, Manchester, and Edinburgh to Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport and Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar, while also serving Kilimanjaro. KLM also runs flights to Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro from London Heathrow with flight times as short as 12 hours.
Julius Nyerere International Airport is located less than 10 miles from Tanzania’s largest city, Dar es Salaam, while Abeid Amani Karume International Airport is only a five-mile drive from Zanzibar’s capital, Stone Town. Most hotels offer private shuttles so make sure to check with yours before you leave. Taxis are readily available from both airports, but be ready to haggle as taxi drivers will often try to charge tourists up to 100,000 Tanzanian shillings, a price that can be negotiated down by the well-prepared traveller. Shared taxis called dala dalas are also a unique and affordable way to get from the airport to your destination and operate in all major Tanzanian cities.
Whether you’re there for the beaches or to explore the boundless natural wonders, Tanzania really does cater to all tastes. If you’re in Zanzibar, the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre and Nungwi Natural Aquarium are must-sees for all ages and the Jozani Chwaka Bay National Park is the ideal place to while away a sunny afternoon. Once you’ve had your fill of exploring, make your way to Nakupenda Beach, a little slice of heaven where you can lie back and let the stresses of modern life simply drift away.
