Rustic Pathways uses Delta / KLM Airlines for our escorted group flights from the United States to Arusha, Tanzania (JRO). Students leaving from the United States may either depart on one of our chaperoned group flights from a gateway airport (see pricing below) or may choose to arrange their own airfare to their destination country with our Self-Managed Airfare. Please note that choosing Self-Managed Airfare will incur a $175 fee. Students on chaperoned group flights are responsible for arranging their own domestic travel to our gateway city.
Students traveling on the chaperoned group flight will have a layover in Amsterdam (AMS) on both departure and return. Students joining our programs from outside the United States are responsible for arranging their own travel to their destination. These students are also required to pay the $175 Self-Managed Airfare fee. You will be provided with specific arrival and departure time windows. Arriving or departing outside these windows may incur special transportation arrangements and fees. Students may alternatively choose to join one of our chaperoned group flights departing from one of our United States gateway airports in which case they would be responsible for arriving to and departing from that gateway airport. These students are not required to pay the $175 Self-Managed Airfare fee. Please reach out to your Personal Travel Advisor to confirm specific arrival and departure airports and times.

Visa requirements for Tanzania vary slightly based on program, so please visit our partner G3 Global Services to assist in the visa application process. You can review the updated visa requirements on their site at www.g3visas.com/rusticpathways.html. Since requirements for visas vary by nationality, G3 is only able to process applications for US citizens. However, they have provided additional information to assist families residing outside of the United States.
Should you choose to apply for your visa directly through the embassy or via another visa service agency please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require additional assistance.
