          I would like to end my safari here for a couple of nights to relax. I cannot seem to find a website for Plantation Lodge. Does anyone have any information on how far the lodge is from Kilimanjaro? Do they offer any kind of transfers to the airport? Thank you - Judy

          Sorry, this might be to late to answer, but I would think there are some hours driving. I am sure the hotel can arrange a driver for you though.

          We are planning a trip next July and are wondering how the game drives work - are they included in the hotel package or do you need to book them separately? Can you schedule private game drives? Do you make arrangements before you arrive for game drives? Anything else we should know about to get a maximum wildlife experience? Thanks!!
