yes, you can get taxi and small vans and bus shuttles at the airport. Some are 10,000 tsh if you have shillings. If they know you are a visitor they will say $. taxi are expensive since it is over an hour to Arusha. I think the maxi is 50 USD for a taxi. Most know English.

I’m not a hotel staff, I stayed at this hotel. It’s located on the edge of Arusha ( an hour drive) it’s around 40 dollars. You can ask the hotel to order for you but it probably will be more expensive. Try to ask a driver we used privately, Emanuel, 255, 786, 755, 174. Good luck
