Lodging at or near Kilimanjaro International Airport

Jump to last reply

We finally did it! Booked our trip to Istanbul - Tanzania - Rwanda for September. Now I need to figure out lodging and transport near JRO for our arrival in Tanzania. Since our best flight options were on Turkish Airlines, we arrive from Istanbul into JRO (unfortunately) at 1:10 am. Our OAT safari starts later that evening in Arusha at the Olasiti Lodge.

I've been trying to reach Kia Lodge but they just don't respond. Since I don't really want to hire a taxi in the middle of the night, I preferred the idea of just getting to bed as soon as possible, then maybe midday arranging transfer to Arusha. We could either taxi in daylight or just go back to JRO and pay OAT for the transfer they will be making for most of the rest of their tour group who are arriving from Amsterdam. I also found a nice lodge midway between JRO and Arusha who will pick us up for a price, but still probably an hour's drive in the dark and so we will get to sleep even later and still have to transfer to Arusha.

Any other ideas or tips on how to get Kia Lodge to respond? Or should we just try to go all the way to the Olasiti in the middle of the night?
