Transport for travelling within Tanzania

There are different transport option to travel Tanzania. Driving yourself is not recommended, due to the huge accident rate and difficult road conditions. Hence, your booking with Fleewinter includes the transfers by road with a knowledgeable private driver/guide. For those who want to cover more ground, there are several internal flights with light airplanes. Some itineraries do include these as well. There are air connections between Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar, Pemba, and several national parks.

Public transportation

When taking a taxi, the price should be negotiated before starting the journey.
Dala Dalas (minibuses) connect almost all towns and villages in Tanzania. They are reasonably priced, but due to the sometimes poor road conditions, the travelling times are rarely adhered to. Convenient, large coaches run on the well-developed roads between larger towns.

There are boats between Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar, Zanzibar and Pemba, and Dar es Salaam and Mtwara. Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi are served by ferries.

Train lines connect Dar es Salaam and Kigoma, as well as Mwanza, Dodoma and Tabora. Another route runs from Dar es Salaam via Mbeya to Kapiri Moshi in Zambia.

Let me organise the means of transport between your various travel stops.


Ngorongoro Crater
This crater is teaming with wildlife - and is one of the few places in Tanzania you will see rhino. The only animal you wont see if the giraffe cause the walls of the crater are too steep for them to descend.
Serengeti National Park
The most famous parks of Africa - the Serengeti, meaning 'Endless Plains'... and the backdrop for the wildebeeste migration
Kilimanjaro International Airport
The main arrival airport to start the northern safari circuit in Tanzania
The main 'safari hub' of the northern Tanzania safari circuit.
Tarangire National Park
This park is slightly less 'famous' but offers some fantastic game viewing and has some amazing Baobab tree forests. Slightly less 'busy' than some of the other parks. A favourite...
Lake Manyara National Park
Famous for its resident 'tree climbing lions' the Lake Manyara Park is worth a visit and is a popular lunch stop from Arusha to the Crater.
Selous Game Reserve
Located in the southern Tanzania and offers a diverse safari experience from traditional game drives to some boat experiences.
