Ask your safari operator to make this arrangement for you.

Going through Virgin Holidays and they do not have a telephone number - I dont think they are the operator either

I would advise you to contact a local Tanzanian safari operator for all of this, they know the vagaries of travel and annual differences better then someone in London.

Look on the Tanzania Forum web page on the left side of the page and you will see Top Questions about Tanzania, there is a question on there about safari operators; follow the link and you will find lists of local safari operators.

You can also look on www.tatotz.org and on their member page you will find safari operators.

I am having problems understanding this.

Are you saying that having booked a Safari Holiday into Tarangire by plane there is NO arrangement for transport at that end? I find that unbeleivable. How are you going to go on Game drives?

My guess is that the Camp know you are coming and will have arrangements to meet you. You are going to be pretty vulnerable sitting out there in the sun on your suitcase.

I found this a bit strange also, but then I don't know what some London travel agency might do (I am assuming that Virgin is a London based travel agency).

Virgin Holidays sounds like Virgin Airlines!

How are you getting to River Camp in the first place?

- with guide/driver and vehicle? or?

Why do you then need to get to Kuru airstrip?

Are you heading onward for safari or back to Arusha?

More info needed.

Note, River Camp is located outside the entry to Tarangire. Kuru airstrip is located inside the park, about 1/hr drive from entry.
