Can i meet the group on the next day of the meeting?

Postby g_traveller_8aa7dd49 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 2:20 am

I am travelling to Tanzania to join the Tanzania and Zanzibar adventure on the 28th of July and the airlines just informed me that the time of the flights change. As a result i will arrive one day later to Arusha (meeting point).

Does anyone know what time the group leaves on the next day of the meeting? Is it possible to catch up with them? I do not feel very safe searching for a vehicle alone to find them along the way..

The departure the first day depends on the trip ... The best is probably to call G adventures and to explain your problem. They will be more able to help than the forum I guess.

Good luck

As mentioned, call them up. If worst comes to worst and they leave before you get there, find out where they will be staying on the second night and meet them there. I did that on my last trip, not because I was late but because I was early and was already at the second night's stop. I didn't want to take a bus for 5 hours (and cross an international border) just to meet the group and take a bus back the next day. G Adventures told me which hotel the group would be in and provided me with the email for the CEO. He was given my info and called me the night before to confirm that everything was going as planned.

Your detailed trip itinerary says that you will be at your second destination for lunch and that it is a two hour drive so the group probably leaves in the morning. G Adventures hopefully can help you arrange a private ride if needed should you not arrive on time.

The departure times tend to be quite early in order to maximize your actual safari time. When I did the first leg of this trip a couple of years ago, I think we likely left Arusha by 7:30am. As Janice mentioned, the best bet would be to contact G Adventures and explain your situation. They will more than likely help you find and book a driver to take you from the airport in Kili (if that's where you're flying into) to the campsite in Mto wa Mbu. They have a lot of local drivers that they use to transport people to/from the airport and hotel, so I'm sure they could put you in touch with your CEO who could have it arranged for you locally as well.
