Getting There & Away
Kolo is 80km south of Babati. Buses to Kolo (Tsh7500, 2½ hours) depart Babati at 7am and 8.30am. From Arusha, Mtei Express buses to Kondoa, leaving at 6am, pass Kolo (Tsh11,500, five hours). The last bus north from Kondoa leaves at 9am. There are only buses to Dodoma (Tsh8500, three hours) from Kondoa, not Kolo. They leave at 6am, 10am and 12.30pm. Catching a north-bound bus in Kondoa means you’ll get a seat; wait for it to pass Kolo and you’ll need to stand.
It could be possible to visit as a day trip from Babati (or as a stop en route to Dodoma) using public transport if you’re willing to hitch-hike after visiting the Kolo sites; there are usually some trucks travelling this road in the afternoon.
