The best way to get to Mkomazi is by road from the town of Moshi or Arusha. The best option to get there is to fly into Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), which is situated halfway between Arusha and Moshi and about 30km/19mi from Moshi. It is also possible to fly into Dar es Salaam and use a domestic flight to get to Arusha Airport (ARK) or Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). In most cases, your tour operator will pick you up from the airport.

Mkomazi is right next to the small town of Same, which is a comfortable 112km/ 69mi drive south from Moshi. Mkomazi lies a bit out of the way as compared to the other parks in northern Tanzania but could be visited en route to the Usambara Mountains. Charter flights to Mkomazi's airstrip are also an option and depart from Arusha or Dar es Salaam.
