Tanzania Day Six. Airport Issues But I Made It To Kilimanjaro
It was raining again when I awoke on my last day on the spice island of Zanzibar. I was up early. My group for my safari in the Serengeti was meeting in the city Arusha, Tanzania that evening and my flight left Zanzibar for Kilimanjaro at 10 am. Depending on traffic, it was almost a two-hour drive to the small airport so I checked out of my resort around 7 am. The warm tropical rain downpour required me to take a golf cart ride to the front desk where I met my driver and guide Mudi. He had driven me to Stonetown earlier in my stay.
There was a mistake with the tour company and I spent a frantic hour in the airline ticket office trying to get on my flight.
As we approached the airport I even got to see a brief glimpse of famous Mount Kilimanjaro surrounded by clouds. I remember reading about this famous peak, covered in snow on the equator, when I was in grade school. I had flown into this airport before before but my flight arrived at night.
It was a short flight, about 40 minutes, and I was soon on the ground at the airport looking forward to meeting my group and begining my safari early the next morning. Here is a link to some more photographs from my travel to Kilimanjaro Airport. Tanzania Day Six Travel to Airport. October 3 2019.
I’m inspired by different cultures around the world and love to incorporate these facets into my collection. Rachel Roy
