If you plan to visit Serengeti national park in Tanzania and Zanzibar after gorilla trekking at Bwindi National Park in Uganda, you can fly out of Kigali Airport to Kilimanjaro airport. From Kilimanjaro airport, your tour operator will pick you up and drive to Serengeti or even Ngorongoro crater. Alternatively, fly from Bwindi National Park to Serengeti via Entebbe International Airport in Uganda.

When you have completed the safari in Serengeti, you can then fly to Zanzibar from Seronera Airstrip. There are currently no direct flights from Seronera to Zanzibar.
