Moshi Airport is the starting point for the Kilimanjaro helicopter tour. When the helicopter takes off, the pilot will aim it eastward so that it passes above the city. While avoiding the mountain range, you will be able to observe all of the climbing routes to Kilimanjaro throughout your flight. The largest tectonic lake in the Kilimanjaro region, Lake Chala, will also be passed over by aircraft.
Explore Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world, by plane!
Discover its glaciers, peaks, craters, and other natural wonders with commentary through the
mobile app available on Play and Apple stores.
You will be met by our airport crew at Arusha Airport and flown by two experienced
pilots on a Cessna Caravan comfortably seat 12 passengers.
JRO (Kilimanjaro International Airport) Drop off
Passengers with evening flights out of JRO e.g. KLM, Precision, Rwandair, can be dropped off
at JRO for an additional cost, thereby avoiding the road transfer between Arusha and
Kilimanjaro International Airport.
8 Window Seats Only
● For clients who are connecting with another flight after the Kilimanjaro scenic flight in
Arusha Airport, we will store their luggage after check in. Once they return from the
scenic flight they don’t need to check out and go through a security check again. We will
help them with their luggage and connect the luggage to their next flight / airline
● For clients who are being dropped off at JRO after the scenic flight, the luggage should
be transferred by road to JRO. By keeping our total aircraft weight low, it improves our
aircraft performance and enables us to reduce our carbon emissions.
