Tarangire Campsite..Distance/Time to Kilimanjaro Airport

Our flight Nairobi/Johannesburg was cancelled. We now need to take flight Kilimanjaro Airport/Johannesburg. How long does it take to get from Tarangire Natl. Park to Kilimanjaro Airport? Do you have any suggestions about lodging near airport in Johannesburg? We leave this Saturday so hard when there is a change in plans. Thanks!

If you exit Tarangire NP at its northern-most gate (not far from the Tarangire Safari Lodge) it is about 30km to the junction of Route B144 (left to Ngorongoro & the Serengeti) and Route A104 (straight ahead to Arusha). From that point it is 50 km to Arusha and another 60km (past Arusha on the road to Moshi) before you get to Kilimanjaro Airport. Practically all of this is asphalt in fairly good condition, so the trip really shouldn't take more than 2 hrs or so.

There is an Airport Holiday Inn (4-star) right by Johannesburg International Airport and (a much less expensive) Airport Holiday Inn Garden Court a few miles away. Shuttle bus transfers are available to both.
