The way to Mt Kilimanjaro

The best airport to fly to is Kilimanjaro international airport (code JRO) and we will arrange transfer from the Kilimanjaro airport to your hotel and back as part of the package (standard package only, optional extra budget climbers package). If you are unable to find flights to Kilimanjaro airport can you reserve flights to either Nairobi airport, Kenya or Dar es Salaam airport, Tanzania. You will need to join a connecting flight to Kilimanjaro airport or bus transfer to Moshi town or Arusha town for the start of your climb.
