    Kiotanest is a wonderful eco-friendly house, approximately 30 minutes drive from Kilimanjaro Airport. The house is large, serene, and furnished with many traditional gifts...

For our trip, in particular, our private safari guide [Elihuruma] knew exactly where to find all the animals we wanted to see. He also took us off the beaten path, such that we were often the only car anywhere near the animals. In one case, we even had bush breakfast while watching zebras and antelope. Many of the boilerplate tourist tours do not see as densely rich an assortment of wildlife nor have a quality experience.
