Left Nova Scotia on overnight flight to London, next day to Amsterdam, hotel overnight then KLM to Kilimanjaro airport in Arusha. (north east corner of the map) Whew.
Arrived in Arusha at 20:30 and suffered through the typical bureaucracy of customs, including US$50 each for a visa.
Short drive to KIA Lodge and had drinks with some of the group. Basic hotel, adequate but just.
