Just as the name of this 8 days Luxury Tanzania Safari indicates, this package is a fly in / fly out safari that includes two domestic flights between Arusha and Serengeti at the beginning of the safari, and a flight from Lake Manyara Airstrip back to Arusha or Kilimanjaro depending on your requirements. If you are departing from Kilimanjaro in the evening then we will fly you into Arusha where we can book for you a day room (if you wish – at extra cost). In case you have an early international flight out of Kilimanjaro, we will book that flight from Lake Manyara to Kilimanjaro where you will connect with your international flight back home.
This is a private tour and therefore if you have an early departure out of Arusha to Zanzibar we will charge you a flight from Arusha to Zanzibar and therefore you will fly from Lake Manyara to Zanzibar via Arusha.
