Fly from Kilimanjaro (JRO) to Zanzibar (ZNZ)

The prevailing easterly winds usually result in becoming airborne on this 391 km / 243 mile leg to Zanzibar in an eastern direction. This gives those on the left hand side of the aircraft the most impressive views of the majesty and serenity of the world’s highest free-standing mountain, Kilimanjaro, at 5900m or a little under 20 000 ft. Her Uhuru peak, the highest of 3, is perennially frozen and snow capped.

A slow bank to the right, Zanzibar bound. This route takes anything from 1h30 to 3h30 to cover, dependent on the aircraft type being used by your chosen operator. Flying over Tanzania, its coast and the islands provides so much ‘eye candy’ that quick is not always better!

Soon after take-off, off to the left, the Nyumba ya Mungu reservoir can be seen. A little later you’re tracking the East Rift - a continuous geological formation visible from space. Kindoroko peak, standing 2000m, comes into sight on the left hand side. First the West Usambara and then the East Usambara Mountains guide your path. The leafy, hiker friendly highland town of Lushoto is nestled at 1200 m in a valley of the West Usamburas.

Your path crosses the shoreline with 80% distance flown and now come the colours and textures of the sea, the beaches, corals and rocks that, with the varying depth of the water contribute to the changing colours. Zanzibar will be visible as you make your approach from the north west, its western shores fringed with white sand beaches and reefs.

On the final descent good views of Stone Town and the bustling port of Zanzibar Town are waiting to be captured.

Once passed immigration - Zanzibar is semi-autonomous but there is nothing needed as you’ve already cleared into Tanzania - baggage collection is easy.

There are many options for your onward transfer: taxis and buses to the town a mere 10 km away.
