Scenic flights

"All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware" - Martin Buber

Scenic flights provide travellers with the maximum of sensations and pleasure since they are the perfect accompaniment for getting to Zanzibar’s tranquil beaches after a wildlife safari or after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Scenic flights also enable quick access between national parks on FLY-IN SAFARIS especially to the far-way parks in the southern and western parts of Tanzania. Soaring between game reserves gives travellers a bird’s eye view of the parks and allows spending as much time as possible at the safari tented camps and lodges as well as exploring the parks on game viewing drives and enjoying experiential safari activities. Our team can pre-book travellers and pre-arrange scenic flights for sightseeing over the Zanzibar Islands, and lagoons and organize all the details required for aerial photography and filming using private charter flights as well as offer private airport transfers.

More travellers are preferring to arrive in Tanzania via the Zanzibar International Airport and spending a few days discovering Stone Town before proceeding by flight to Arusha Airport to start their wildlife safari to the nearby northern attractions of: Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire game reserves. Most safaris to the northern parts of Tanzania are conveniently conducted with specially equipped modern 4x4 Landcruiser safari vehicles. Our suggested trip itinerary: Tanzania Highlights (14 Days) wildlife safari and beach holiday program has scenic flights included from Zanzibar (ZNZ) to Arusha (ARK) after discovering and recovering in two-days in Stone Town before starting the safari adventure.

We include scenic flights to the off the beaten track areas of southern Tanzania on our safaris to Ruaha and Selous game reserves for prime wildlife watching and unique safari activities. These remote and wild areas of Tanzania do require a flight for convenient access especially if safari-goers are departing from the north in Arusha or from Zanzibar Island. A driver guide on the ground meets you upon arrival at these parks and transfers you to your place of stay with a game drive en-route. For travellers seeking exclusivity or returning to Tanzania for a safari adventure, we have featured a suitable trip itinerary: Glimpse of Tanzania (11 Days). Travellers can always contact us should they wish to add/reduce a few days or fully customize their own trip itinerary.

To get to the far-away parks in the western region of Tanzania, travellers must book their trip program appropriately to match the days when shared charter flights depart from Arusha Airport to the respective airports/airstrips in the western parts. At Tima Tours we have a safari program: Tanzania Magic (13 Days) that takes you to Arusha National Park then proceeds to western Tanzania where travellers spend a few days enjoying tracking chimpanzees in Gombe National Park and visiting Kigoma Town before proceeding to Zanzibar Island for a beach holiday.

After climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, hikers can proceed to Zanzibar Island for some beach relaxation and rejuvenating activities by taking a short scenic flight from Arusha (ARK) to Zanzibar (ZNZ). On arrival, we provide transfers from the airport to any of the idyllic beaches such as: Nungwi Peninsula on the northern part of Zanzibar Island. Mount Kilimanjaro is best climbed before a wildlife safari to the northern parks of Tanzania or after spending a few nights at Moshi Town acclimatizing after your arrival. Our featured Mount Kilimanjaro Climbing program via the Lemosho Route takes 9 Days and it has a very high success rate due to the ideal route, and the time it takes to reach the Uhuru Peak.

It is possible to conveniently access Zanzibar Island on a scenic flight from Mwanza Airport after visiting Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya which is famous for the Great Wildebeest Migration River Crossing between the months of August to October when witnessing the breathtaking natural unfold up close. On our featured safari program: Tanzania Odyssey (14 Days), travellers start their safari in Tanzania with visits to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, and Serengeti then proceed to the neighboring Masai Mara for a few days before returning to Tanzania and spending 2-days at Lake Victoria’s shores before they are transferred to Mwanza Airport for their scenic flight to Zanzibar.

In addition to our featured program, we are available and ready to help travellers plan their tailor-made FLY-IN All-Inclusive safari holidays to the wildlife destinations. The use of the smaller, all-inclusive tented camps allows for personalised service throughout the trip which makes it very wonderful for travellers who are celebrating special occasions. Our dedicated team of tour experts can help you to custom-design your suitable fly-In safari and/or Mount Kilimanjaro climbing program for the adventurous as well as an interesting Zanzibar Beach Holiday based on your travel duration, interests and purpose.
