Scenic Flights.

Experience Tanzania from above

Ensure that all people on Mt. Kilimanjaro have the opportunity to get from the mountain to a hospital as fast as possible. Current stretcher operation is dangerous and slow. Our modern helicopters are fast and reliable.

We do more than just evacuations. We offer adventures too.

Kilimanjaro Express Flights: 

A unique and hassle-free way to end your epic adventure. After your successful ascent of Kilimanjaro we can help by shortening 2 days of grueling descent to a comfortable 30 minute flight. Whether it’s that long-awaited refreshing shower, that cold beer or just moving on to your next adventure we are here to help.

This is our “ Kilimanjaro Express” service!

VIP Transfers:

Executive helicopter pickups and drop offs from any location for private and comfortable travel.

No request is too big or too complex, just lets us know “when” and “where” and let us sort out the rest -no need to worry about the long lines at the airport. For discretion, flexibility or personalised itineraries we are here to help.

I just wanted to send you a quick email to mention how excellent William, Bosco, Dr. Sweetbert and Amina were during our emergency! I am sure there were others involved that we don’t know of, however these are the individuals that I came in touch with, and actually I am amazed at the efficiency, professionalism and caring nature right from the start of the emergency call at approx. 4:30am on a Sunday morning! They went above and beyond my expectations.- Mrs Remee Roperia, MD, Shah Tours & Travel Ltd.
I was able to directly witness the hospital care during a charity evacuation of a porter by Kilimanjaro SAR. The porter was transported speedily to a hospital in Moshi which allowed him to receive prompt medical attention. A company representative remained with him until he was finished with his treatment. All details of the hospital were taken care of in a professional, courteous and helpful manner.- Karen Valenti, Program Manager, Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project
