Getting to the city centre with your Kilimanjaro Airport shuttle

Once you exit the airport parking, you’ll head east toward Kilimanjaro Airport Rd and continue onto Kilimanjaro Airport Rd for about 6 kilometres. You’ll then turn left onto Kanisa Rd and after 1.4 kilometres turn right onto Nelson Mandela Rd/Nyerere Rd/Old Moshi Road. At the roundabout, you’ll take the first exit onto Fire Rd, turn right toward River Rd, and continue onto River Rd. Then, at the roundabout, you’ll take the first exit onto Factory Rd and you’ll have reached Arusha city centre; your driver will continue on local roads depending on the exact location of your accommodation.
