How to Get Here?

Mkoma Bay Tented Lodge’s unique secluded character is secured by its location off-the-beaten track, which means getting here can be a bit of a challenge. Two airstrips, Tanga and Mashado, served only by domestic airlines Coastal, Auric and Al Salaam, are within one and half-an-hour’s drive respectively. The lodge organises pick-up and transfers. By car, Pangani is accessible from Tanga in the north (45 km), Dar es Salaam in the south either through Saadani National Park (220 km) or around the park on 320 km of tarmac road via Bagamoyo, Segera and Muheza, and from Arusha/Moshi inland. There are public bus services from Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Moshi to Tanga. Finally, speed-boat transfers (2 hours) can be organised to and from Northern Zanzibar. Where are you planning to come from?........

Remember that price is not everything: total flight time, number of stop-overs or change of planes as well as whether one of the flights on a two-flight trip is long enough to get some meaningful sleep are essential variables for a comfortable trip.

To find the best flights, go search for KLM/ Air France, Swiss Air, Turkish Airlines ...
