TFC launches services into Serengeti Lamai Airstrip

As The Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority has officially announce the opening, Tanzanian aviation provider, Tanganyika Flying Co. (TFC) today announced that they will be launching services into Serengeti Lamai Airstrip. This increases the number of airstrips to five that TFC flights serve in The Serengeti National Park. Julian Edmunds, TFC Director said that the addition of this airstrip will facilitate the movement of passengers staying at Singita’s Mara River Tented Camp and Asilia’s Olakira Lamai Camp, plus any other seasonal camps that operate north of the Mara River.

The services will operate to the same rates, times and conditions as Kogatende Airstrip on a morning and afternoon basis, all year round.  We will offer connections from and to Arusha, Kilimanjaro International Airport, Nairobi Wilson, Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam, Lake Manyara, Ndudu, Singita Grumeti Reserves and the other Serengeti National Park airstrips.

The opening of this airstrip should enhance the overall experience of tourists visiting the Northern Serengeti, particularly during the migration season, from August to October, where the pressure on the Kogatende runway can be extreme. TFC, once again, are proud to lead the way for air services within the Serengeti and commend the efforts of the Tanzania National Parks Authority and Singita in developing this new facility.

These services are available immediately.
