Staying near Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO ) is ideal for travelers arriving late at night and those who want to avoid a long drive after a tiring flight. In Tanzania, driving at night on the highway (Moshi – Arusha) is not always ideal due to poor marking of roads, limited signage and minimal lighting. The combination of these factors make night driving less than inviting.
In addition, clients planning a flying safari from Arusha (ARK) to Serengeti (instead of driving) can opt for Coastal Air's morning flight from Kilimanjaro (JRO) to Serengeti. A flight will always place you in Serengeti faster compared to driving there. Likewise, clients connecting at JRO to Dar es Salaam, Mwanza or Zanzibar enjoy many more flight options and better prices as compared to flying out of ARK.
