Three new holiday destinations in Tanzania

Edelweiss is expanding its offer on the African continent. With Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam, it is adding three new destinations in Tanzania to its route network for the autumn holidays. The holiday destinations can be combined perfectly to experience the country's full diversity.

Holidays in Tanzania are paradise. The country fascinates with its wealth of nature and its diverse animal world. Experience the "Big 5" (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros) up close in the Serengeti National Park, hike up Mount Kilimanjaro or relax on the beach of a tropical island like Arab-influenced Zanzibar: If you are looking for variety, you are guaranteed to find it in Tanzania.

Kilimanjaro: The Hiker's Paradise

Kilimanjaro, the "roof of Africa", attracts nature lovers from all over the world with its imposing snow crown. A hike up Africa's highest mountain is rightly on the bucket list of many nature and trekking lovers. The area around Mount Kilimanjaro is the ideal starting point for discovering Tanzania's endless steppe landscapes and incredible wealth of wildlife.

Edelweiss will be flying directly from Zurich to Kilimanjaro International Airport twice a week from 8 October 2021.

Zanzibar: The tropical beauty

The brilliant white beaches on the spice island of Zanzibar promise all-round pampering and plenty of relaxation. Bathing holidays that smell of pepper, cloves and vanilla, where the azure sea gently laps your feet and your senses learn to fly. The year-round warm, crystal-clear water and the white powder-sand beaches make Zanzibar the African dream destination to unwind.

Edelweiss will be flying once a week from Zurich with a stopover in Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar from 8 October 2021.

Dar es Salam: The Gateway to Southern Tanzania

The bustling metropolis of Dar es Salaam is located on Tanzania's mainland coast, which is hardly developed for tourism. Not far from the city you will find secluded beaches with oriental flair. The island dream of Zanzibar is just a stone's throw away and the national parks in the south of Tanzania can be easily explored from here.

Edelweiss will be flying once a week from Zurich with a stopover in Kilimanjaro to Dar es Salaam from 12 October 2021.

Flights to the three new holiday destinations can be booked now on flyedelweiss.com and through all the usual sales channels.

Any necessary adjustments due to travel restrictions being reintroduced in the respective countries will be promptly communicated. To allow for worry-free travel planning nonetheless, Edelweiss will continue to guarantee free and flexible rebooking options.
