Dar Es Salaam

Dar Es Salaam

Dar es Salaam is a significant hub in Tanzania, with a population of 2.8 million. This former capital city started as a fishing village in the mid-19th century, when the Sultan of Zanzibar got the urge to turn a creek (which is now a harbour) into a safe port and trading centre… Now Dar es Salaam has grown to the point of harbouring large ocean-vessels, as well as small Arab dhows (a Tanzania/Zanzibar dhow trip is a ‘must do’)!

Dar es Salaam nearest beach is Oyster Bay – which is a beautiful piece of tropical coastline. Besides that, there are lots of Tanzania beaches surrounding Dar es Salaam offering picture perfect beaches, warm weather and fantastic Tanzania holiday options. You can also catch a boat from Dar es Salaam to one of the nearby islands including a Marine Reserve which is a very popular Tanzania day trip option. At this marine reserve you can enjoy sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming! A secret Tanzania ‘paradise’ spot is Bongoyo Island which is only a quick boat trip away from Dar es Salaam… here you will see Tanzania at its best – magical coral and tropical fish!

Dar es Salaam is known for its history, architecture, and its diverse cultural mix of African, German, Asian and British influences. Like most African cities, there are substantial contrasts between the various parts of the city. There are busy central streets that run pass the colourful Kariakoo Market and clock tower, and very quiet areas with tree-lined boulevards to the north. Only one hour away (north) of Dar es Salaam is Bagamoyo which is home to the Kaole Ruins – a very fascinating and mystical Tanzania highlight! There are also other interesting Tanzania highlights near Dar es Salaam such as; the Dar es Salaam national museum, the village museum and the Botanical gardens!

The shopping, restaurants, and bustling activity in Dar es Salaam is, at its best, in the Asian business district, and visitors can find carvings, paintings, pottery, batiks and clothing, as well as some of the best restaurants in East Africa. What ever you are looking for in Tanzania, Dar es Salaam is a great place to start your Tanzania safari at – fantastic day trips, exciting beaches and perfect weather…. Tanzania at its best!
