Peak season:

Tanzania tends to be popular throughout most of the year thanks to the warm weather. Game viewing is also something that can be enjoyed all year-round. If you want to witness the annual wildebeest migration then make sure to secure your flights between December and April. This migration sees millions of animals move across from Masai Mara in Kenya all the way to the Serengeti. Due to the immense popularity throughout the year you’ll want to make sure you secure your flight tickets well in advance to find the cheapest flights to Tanzania. If you want to take part in some cultural celebrations then visit during January for the Wanyambo Festival. Hikers will love the Kiliman Adventure Challenge in February. The challenge involves three grueling tasks – hiking, cycling and a marathon. There is also the Karibu Travel and Tourism fair in May/June and is one of the biggest in East Africa.

Off season:

There isn’t really an off season however the wettest months hit the country hard during March and April so you’ll find the cheapest flights to Tanzania around then. April and May can also be classed as low season as the circuit parks in the south and west parts of the country tend to close.

Aim to have your flights booked at least four or five months in advance but if you can book them earlier, this can only help you. Deciding when to book your flights to Tanzania will vary on what exactly you are hoping to get out of your holiday. If you can be flexible then you’ll increase your chances of finding cheap flights to Tanzania enormously. It’s also a good idea to try and avoid school holidays or big major festivals if you are on a strict budget.

You’ll notice the cost of flight tickets does vary depending on where exactly you are planning to visit, with Dar es Salaam usually the cheaper location and Zanzibar or Kilimanjaro on the more expensive spectrum.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Zanzibar:

It isn’t difficult to find your way to your hotel from the airport although you are very limited on the options available. There is no bus or train service available which makes a taxi your only option if you haven’t planned ahead. Taxis do have a price list to different destinations but don’t be afraid to negotiate a little to try and a get a better price. When you have booked your flights to Tanzania you can also look into hotels that offer a shuttle service. There are some hotels who charge ridiculous amount of money for the privilege of being collected. That said, if the hotels in Stone Town do offer free transfers, so this is something you should definitely look into.

Dar es Salaam:

Once your flights to Tanzania land at Dar es Salaam you’ll have just a couple of options available to get you to your hotel. The easiest, most convenient method is to pre-arrange transport before you leave. A lot of hotels to provide airport transfers either in with the total cost or as a small additional fee. It is advisable to secure a hotel which provides this service as it makes travelling to your hotel a lot easier and you won’t have to worry about any issues. The best time to arrange this is of course after you’ve booked your flights to Tanzania. Your other option is to get a taxi. While taxis aren’t cheap, they aren’t extortionate either so it will come down to your own preference. If you’re not keen on the idea of travelling in a foreign country in a taxi then definitely arrange for the shuttle when you’ve secured your flight tickets.
