Drive on the T1 from Dar to Iringa and continue towards Mbeya. About 25 km after Mafinga, at the end of a straight stretch, immediately after the bus stop area there is turn off to the right. This is before the main road goes downhill. Turn RIGHT off of the main highway and immediately turn left onto the outer road. Stay to the right as the road splits (a well worn road to the right and the outer road staying straight). On this well worn dirt road, after 2 km there is a Kibidula sign which tells you to turn left. After 10 km you leave the forest and reach the Kibidula property border. As you continue on this road, you will see the Swahili sign “ofisi ya Kibidula.” Turn left here onto the lower campus road. You will continue on this road until it ends into another road. Turn left. After passing several houses, the office is clearly marked on the right side of the road.
