Hi! Just one query - how does one get there from the Kilimanjaro airport. The place sounds just perfect. Just need to figure out the best mode of airport transfer. Thank you!

    The lodge will provide transport for you. This is how my wife and I arrived. Just let them know with some advance warning so they can plan -- and they will pick you up.
