Pre Departure Info

Dear Team Karimu,

We hope that your preparation and packing is going well!

Just a couple of last-minute tips:
1.            Please remember to check your luggage allowance - it is usually 23kg maximum for the main hold + 7kg for hand   luggage. Please do keep to this allowance. It should be more than enough for all your kit.
2.            Please do not to pack any walking boots on the outside of the main hold luggage. They almost certainly won’t arrive still attached, we recommend you wear your boots for the flight to keep them safe (and save on weight in your main bag).
3.            Please also pack a change of underwear, toothbrush (not paste, unless it is less than 100ml) and any other absolute essentials in your hand luggage (i.e. medication, anti-malarial tablets), just in case any main bags go missing on the flight. It is unlikely, but best to be safe.

Keeping in touch:
We have set up this blog for your group, to keep family and friends up to date with what your team is up to. 

Your family and friends can comment on posts and photographs. We will be updating the blog as often as possible with your news. Please feel free to pass this link on to anyone who you think would like to stay up to date with the team’s activities.

Trip Information: 
Don’t forget you can find specific trip information and documents here This page has some key documents (itinerary, trip information pack, risk assessments) plus general Inspire information and our Emergency number – also detailed below.

Flights and arrival: 
As you know your team will be flying with various airlines, all landing into Kilimanjaro Airport, Tanzania on the 16th June. We will update the blog to let your family and friends know when you have all arrived safely.

Upon arrival into the airport, Jack and Julia, the Inspire Group Leaders, will be there to meet you wearing their Inspire t-shirts. When the whole team has arrived you will take the short drive by private bus to the Charity Hotel, where you will have time to freshen up, have some dinner and do some in-country orientation with your leaders.

If your family need to contact a member of the team urgently at any point please make a note of the Inspire 24 hour EMERGENCY number: 07531 872 658. This number is manned in the UK 24 hours a day in case of any emergency situations where your family/friends need to contact a member of the team urgently.

For all other queries, please use the Inspire office number: 01273 249543.
