Airline Tickets

When you book a safari with Paramount Safaris we will pick you up at your point of arrival in Arusha, northern Tanzania. In most instances your safari guide will meet you on arrival but sometimes you may be met by another representative from Paramount Safaris.

We can help you book domestic flights, land and see transportation, road transfers or exciting tour excursions for many of Tanzania’s attractions. We do not offer International airline bookings. For safaris on the northern circuit it’s best to arrive at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) located midway between the towns of Moshi and Arusha. Currently this airport is served daily from Europe by KLM and several times weekly by Ethiopian Airlines. Additional airlines such as British, Emirates and others fly into Dar es Salaam (DAR).

1) Economy Package: a mobile or adventure tented camps, the most basic accommodations aimed at the more intrepid travelers   2) Deluxe Package: a tented camp which is similar to a lodge except that the “rooms” are canvas and have hot showers   3) Luxury Package:  this is a safari lodge which is similar to a hotel but located in the bush

There will be a cook to prepare your food and the guide will assist in erecting the tents. Meals are served like in a lodge and sometimes under the stars or “al fresco”. Both lodges and tented camps employ nighttime guards to assist you to your room or tent after dinner. Camp is set up in designated areas within the national parks or at private facilities nearby.

Tanzania is the home of some of the most beautiful national parks in the world. If you are considering a visit for a holiday or to conduct business in Tanzania and Zanzibar, you will be required to obtain a visa through the Tanzanian Embassy in Washington, D.C. before your departure. Or you can pick one up on entry at Kilimanjaro International Airport, Dar es Salaam International Airport, or at the Namanga border crossing from Kenya.

To avoid the inconvenience of sometimes waiting in long lines at the airport, and possibly not receiving the visa in time, we advise our customers to obtain their visa stamp on their passports (the fee is the standard $100 US) before departure at our Paramount Safaris offices.
