Please give more details about the 2 nights camping trip post-reunion weekend.

The costs for the 2-night trips will depend on the number of people interested in doing one of the trips. We have worked out a rough estimate for 10-15 people as follows (calculated for non resident adult) but prices could be reduce if more people sign up and the trip cancelled if too few people sign up:

Mt Kili $350 (hike and camp)

Pangani $120 (includes historic town tour/open water excursions)

Little Meru $200 (hike, camp, and Game drive)

Most equipment is available for rent from the OP store but we recommend that you bring your own outdoor equipment.
