Fly from Dar es Salaam (DAR) to Lake Manyara (LKY)

The direct flight option from Dar Es Salaam to Lake Manyara takes approximately 1h40m. There are not many options for the direct routing, especially out of the peak tourist seasons of June to October, and mid December to February.

This is due to the majroity of safaris to Lake Manyara starting in Arusha, connected to Dar through its own Arusha airport or Kilimanjaro International airport a 40 minute drive away.  

The popular routing for the indirect route is therefore Dar - Arusha or Kilimanjaro - Lake Manyara.

There are a number of flight options from Dar to Arusha / Kilimanjaro daily, as well as from either Kilimanjaro / Arusha to Lake Manyara. Note: you may have to change airline for the second part of your journey. This is very common and presents no problem: when booking on Tripindigo, select the ‘multi-stop’ option which will ensure that you can book both legs of the journey at the same time.

Lake Manyara is part of the Northern Safari circuit, and is, as the crow flies 517 km (321 miles) from Dar es Salaam. It is usually visited ‘en route’, as part of a tour in the Northern Circuit. (Read about Lake Manyara here).

The flight from Dar to Arusha (route description here) takes between 1h40 and 2 hours, covering a distance of 471 km or 291 miles. The Arusha / Kilimanjaro to Lake Manyara leg is a quick 30 minutes. It provides the opportunity to see the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro dependant on take-off direction, as well as its surrounding National Park. Mount Meru, Kili’s close neighbour is very close and affords passengers incredible views.

Tracking west, up ahead the huge soda-ash Lake Manyara comes into view, with the Great Rift Valley wall as the backdrop.

The small airport lies atop the rift valley wall making the approach and landing a fun experience.
