Staying near Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO ) airport is ideal for those arriving late at night and/or those avoiding a long drive after a lengthy flight. Driving at night on the highway (Moshi – Arusha) is not always ideal; considering poor marking of roads and signage coupled with minimal lighting. These factors combined make night driving less inviting.
In addition to the above info: Clients planning a flying safari from Arusha (ARK) to Serengeti (instead of driving) can opt for Coastal Air's morning flight from Kilimanjaro (JRO) to Serengeti. A flight will put you in Serengeti in less time compared to driving there.
