Popular flights from Tanzania

Flying to Mount Kilimanjaro (JRO) is a must if you are in Tanzania, as this extraordinary mountain rises up over the grasslands of Tanzania and neighbouring Kenya. Many travellers hope to climb this mountain, the highest in Africa, but you can also book hot air balloons over this stunning natural wonder.

Slightly longer on a plane can take you to another incredible African wonder, the Pyramids of Giza just outside of Cairo (CAI). Learn the history of the ancient empire that created them by ducking into the Egyptian Museum, or visit other excellent attractions, like the Al-Azhar Mosque, and the beautiful Al Azhar Park.

In nine hours you can stroll down the picturesque streets of Zurich (ZRH). This city has a delightful Old Town that meanders along the lakeshore, and there are some wonderful museums and galleries, not least of which is the Swiss National Museum. Of course, if you just want to enjoy a little retail therapy, head down the Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping street of the city, and a lovely walk to boot.

Where to find cheap flights from Tanzania

It is important to remember when booking your flights that there are two major ways to save money; either by being prepared, or by being flexible.

Flyers who book well in advance—roughly seven months before their intended departure—will see big savings. Flexible travellers can pick up mid-week or late night routes that are often slashed in price as they are less popular. Both types of travellers can utilise the calendar tool to check when the best time to fly is, so you take those savings with you to your next destination.
