    Just as has been said, generally there no big difference. You are better of asking the hotel to pick you up it is part of what they offer. Enjoy your stay.

    I was able to use it for a 8000 entry fee and then 10000 fee for the wifi code. So yes, but not for free.

    Hi Bill taxi transfer from the airport to the hotel is between USD $35_40. Depending on your negotiation skills. You can pay in dollars or Tanzanian Shillings around 40K Tanzanian Shillings. Distance one way is about 35km.
