How to get to Moshi
All volunteer travel arrangements are made individually. It is important, however, to communicate your travel details with your contact person at SAIDIA Tanzania. You will be coordinating travel from your home country to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. There are direct flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA) from a number of locations throughout Europe. Volunteers can also connect to KIA via Dar es Salaam or Nairobi on Precision Airways.
For travellers connecting, it can be difficult to coordinate flight arrangements with Precision Airways internationally. We recommend that volunteers who opt not to travel direct secure an international flight into Dar es Salaam or Nairobi, and then work with our travel agent to book the final leg of your travel itinerary into Moshi. This ticket can either be paid through SAIDIA with your Volunteer Programme Fee or directly to our travel agent once you arrive in Tanzania (in which case you will be provided with a printable e-ticket prior to your departure).
There are also bus and train options for travelling from Dar es Salaam and Nairobi to Moshi. We do not recommend this option for volunteers visiting Africa for the first time. However, if you’d like more information on these options or information concerning passports and visas, please contact us.
Getting out and about with SAIDIA Safaris
In partnership with Honey Badger Lodge and Safaris (www.honeybadgerlodge.com) we are now able to offer low costs safaris and mountain climbing options. What’s more when you choose to take a trip with Honey Badger you are still i directly helping your volunteer projects as a percentage of all fees paid to Honey Badger goes to their giving back initiatives and so the cycle continues.
