Getting Around
Local transport around Kilimanjaro can be easy if you take local buses called "Daladalas". They are 16 seater minibuses which usually transport about 30 people and/or children and livestock at any given time. Daladalas can be used to go within Moshi or to the surrounding villages, for instance Machame and Marangu, and are very cheap (less than a dollar). Listen to the conductor shouting the destination as they drive past, and feel free to shout your destination to him. They sometimes have stickers in the front win. There is a bus stop strait above the road, where you can jump into an local daladala bus. From town and back to the house you can take the bus with a red stripe named 'Kiboriloni'
