Dar es Salaam is a rapidly growing city home to just over 4 million residents. The name of the city, which loosely translates as ‘haven of peace’, is quite ironic given its chaotic, loud nature. The city is hectic, and you could spend up to three hours in rush hour at night, but it is also a cultural hub. Those that enter the urban jungle will get a fascinating insight into local life and culture. The city has exquisite restaurantsgood nightlife, and several beautiful beaches. Its status as the economic hub of Tanzania makes it well-connected to surrounding cities, Zanzibar, and the national parks in the south.

 

As Tanzania’s economic capital, Dar es Salaam has good domestic and international transport links. Several airlines offer flights to the Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), including Etihad Airways, Emirates, Qatar Airways Delta, KLM, Swiss International Air Lines, and Turkish Airlines. The bus journey from the airport to the city centre takes around 30 minutes.

 

You can take any bus in the direction of Kisutu. Tickets should cost TSH 200-TSH 400. Alternatively, you can take a taxi or Uber to the city centre, but this will be more expensive. A taxi to the city centre costs around TSh 400.000. After dark, caution should be taken with taxis. Dar es Salaam covers a huge spread of land and taxis can become much more expensive if you are staying in the outskirts of the city. If you book with us, we will take care of your transport.
