Dar es Salaam - Tanzania

Dar es Salaam, a big city bursting with people, sounds, and activity is a vibrant port city on the east coast of Tanzania, often shortened to just ‘Dar’. It is the former capital of Tanzania and means ‘abode of peace’. Dar es Salaam has an eclectic mix of colonial buildings dwarfed by modern high-rise structures and is the economic hub of Tanzania.

For most visitors it is a quick stop, often only at the airport, on their way to their safari destination or the relaxing beach holiday at the start or end of their trip in East Africa. But don’t try to avoid this big city as it has much to offer.

Investigate the real Swahili culture, explore charming museums, check out the mix of architecture, barter for bargains in markets, pick up the best souvenirs of Tanzania, check out the vibrant local music scene, join passionate fans at sports events, feel the vibe or simply relax on one of the islands or Indian Ocean beaches for a day. Dar's beaches and its own close in islands are some of the finest in East Africa.
