Getting to Kilimanjaro overland via Kenya. ???
I'll be flying into Nairobi on May 30 to visit friends. From there i'd like to drive to Tanzania to climb Kilimanjaro.
Does anyone have any advice or information on this border crossing and whether or not I can book a guided trip once I get to the place where the trips leave from? In other words, do I have to book the trip ahead of time or can I do it once I arrive in Tanzania?
Thanks for your time.
At the border you unload and head to the customs house. You can get your Tanzanian Visa here (for US resident it was $50 in 2003). I'm not really sure what the procedure is for clearing a car through customs.
Once in the Kilimanjaro area it will be quite easy to arrange your trek with a local outfitter. I highly suggest Good Earth Tours (contact). I arranged my trek via their US office, however they also maintain a home office in Arusha as well.
Good luck and safe travels....
