      hey everybody,

      In October 2015 we're planning to visit Tanzania. Some practical questions / doubts / do's / dont's:
      - accommodation in the NPs. You recommend staying either in or right outside the park?
      - transportation throughout the country?
      - walking / climbing the Kilimanjaro?

      Looking forward hearing from you, thanks!

      Chicago to Tanzania, as few flights as possible?

      Tanzania Mar 7, 2015 at 9:24 AM

      Hi experts...

      We're planning a trip to Tanzania next year for 9 days. I have status on United Airlines, so my preference is to fly UAL or a Star Alliance partner. We live in Chicago, and my thought was that we could fly from here to somewhere in Europe, then from wherever that is to Tanzania (probably Dar Es Salaam).

      Trouble is, from looking at the United web site and trying to get an itinerary, it looks like way more flights than I want to take. I'd be OK with flying from ORD to NWR, LGA, HOU, IAD, etc., and then leaving the US from one of those airports. But all the trips UAL seems to offer take us through Manchester, or London, or Zurich...then to Turkey, or Ethiopia, or Egypt - then to Dar Es Salaam. I haven't yet called United directly, but is anyone aware of direct flights from, say, London, Paris, Zurich, Frankfurt, Munich, etc., to Dar Es Salaam on United or a United partner? Thanks.
