Ok I need help again! Go figure! LOL I have had zero help from a local travel agent in arranging flights to Kilimanjaro. Because we are traveling with 4 kids and we sort of have to keep the cost of the flights on the low end. So I have been able to get us from Calgary to London, London to Nairobi. Then on the way back, we leave from Dar es Salaam to London (stay there for three days) then back to Calgary. My problem is trying to find a way from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro. I was hoping to find flights from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro, but am having little luck for the days I would need (feb 2008) am I looking too far in advance? I know we would be able to fly right into Kilimanjaro via Amsterdamn, but it would cost us aprox. $6000 more. Not sure that is worth it when we are already paying $35000+ for this vacation. We would be flying into Nairobi at 9:30 at night, so we would have to stay over night. (anyone have a suggestion as where to stay for a quick over night?) My husband would be willing to take the bus (4 hour bus ride) into Kilimanjaro. Anyone know the ease of doing this? I am a planner, so I like to know for sure we are going to get 6 on a bus no problem. I am not so good at flying by the seat of my pants when we are in Nairobi, but I am sure I could manage. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
