These estimates do not include your hotel in Arusha and transfers from airport to your hotel. We recommend you schedule your flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport (KJO). It is about 1-1/2 hours from Arusha. The tips for your safari guides and porters are also not included.
All of our safari's begin in Arusha. Therefore, you should plan of staying your first and last nights in Arusha. The safari's are very tiring and you should plan on staying at least one night (we recommend two nights) at the end of your safari in a nice hotel in Arusha before boarding a long plane trip home. We will be happy to book your hotel reservations and airport transfers at the time of booking your safari. We have several very nice hotels we work with in Arusha.
Under our tab "Safari Options" you will find a list of some of some of the lodges we book with to make your safari experience the best of your lifetime. We have chosen these to give you an idea of the diversity of the different areas and lodges and their pricing structures, where available. Should you want to book at a specific lodge, not listed, please let our safari planner know during your planning stage. It is impossible to guarantee your stay at a specific lodge due to the number of available rooms and the fact that the individual lodges refuse to guarantee a room until the payment is received.

Prior to booking, if one or more of your choices are not available for the dates you have chosen, we will advise you and get your permission to book with a comparable lodge.
