    I will be finishing up a Kilimanjaro climb before going to Arusha for a safari. I have an extra night and am considering your hotel. Is ground transportation available from Moshi or just the airport? If it's only the airport, is it ok if I'm not flying in that day? (I'm looking at checking in 3 Jan 2016.)
