  1. Before you get too excited about going on a Mount Kilimanjaro trek, you’ll need to know how to get to the site. Mount Kilimanjaro is located in the northeastern part of Tanzania in East Africa. To get here, you have several options to either catch a flight to Dar es Salaam (Airport: DAR), Nairobi (airport: NBO) in Kenya or, the most convenient and nearest airport, Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) in Arusha.
    More flights from different parts of the world are available in both DAR and NBO compared to JRO and since most travelers find flights to NBO a lot cheaper, this usually becomes their choice of entry.
    How can I minimize my ecological footprint on Kilimanjaro?
    From Nairobi, you can fly to Kilimanjaro airport for approximately 1 hour or take shuttle bus to Arusha for 5 to 6 hours. If you’re coming from Dar es Salaam which is in the southern part of Tanzania, it’ll take you about 60 to 90 minutes via air or 8 hours by road.
    Whatever hub you decide to go to, one’s Mount Kilimanjaro adventure should start in Moshi or Arusha town. From there, you will drive down to Marangu where you can find the entrance gate to Kilimanjaro National Park and then register for your climb.
    Travel time from Arusha to Kilimanjaro is usually 3 hours. Typically, your tour operator will arrange your pick-up and drop-off from these points.
