Instructions for joining your trip

Please note that, if you are arriving at either Arusha or Kilimanjaro International Airport, then airport transfers to and from those airports are Not included in your trip price (you can book with us on requet). If you are arriving at Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi (Kenya), however, then the cost of the airport transfer from there to Arusha is not included, nor is the transfer back there at the end of your stay. You can of course book your airport transfers from Jomo Kenyatta Airport with Backpackers Safaris, by informing us of your flight arrival time and making the appropriate payment in addition to your trip price. Two daily public shuttles operate from Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi, one leaving at 08.00 and the other at 14.00 hours at a cost of $25 per person for a single ticket. Each takes approximately 6 to 7 hours to reach Arusha. Whichever airport you arrive at, we strongly advise that when you approach the driver (who will be waiting outside the baggage reclaim area) that you ask him who he has come to collect, rather than giving him your name. Our driver will display your name on an Backpackers Safaris signboard. These procedures ensure that you are picked up by the correct driver, rather than by some of the airport taxi drivers who are looking for business.

Solo Travelers on Group Trips

Our group trips are based on shared accommodation and solo travelers booking onto group trips will share twin rooms/tents with a fellow traveler of the same gender throughout the trip. Some of our independent trips are designed differently and single travelers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

My Own Room

If you prefer not to share accommodation with a fellow traveler, you can book a single room for the duration of the trip and pay the appropriate single room supplement.
