Flights to Dar Es Salaam

Having long been a gateway to the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, its history, bustling markets, restaurants and beaches are now fast-persuading travellers to prolong their stay in the city when they take flights to Dar es Salaam to get to their final destination.

Dar es Salaam’s past has left an indelible mark on its architecture, food and ethnic make-up – there are Asian flavours, an unmistakable Arabic influence and remnants of colonial Europe. Indeed, the city was once an important hub for the slave trade, and visitors can learn more about the city’s history at the National Museum.

Many of Dar es Salaam’s attractions are accessible by foot – somewhat surprising, considering the heavy traffic. However, this all feels a world away when strolling through the tree-lined streets in the city centre – the aforementioned National Museum, Askari Monument, Botanical Gardens, Karimjee Hall and Lutheran Church are all a short walk from one another, and the beaches of Oyster Bay are just a short cab ride away.

Plus, as in any big city, you’ll stumble upon your fair share of hidden gems, from market stalls and trendy boutiques to hole-in-the-wall cafes and traditional restaurants.

Dar es Salaam’s restaurants are a good place to meet fellow travellers and hang out with the city’s residents, whether you’re indulging in some fine dining at one of the hotels or staying out late to socialise with expats. Finally, if and when you do decide to explore further afield, beautiful Zanzibar is just a ferry ride away.

What to do in Dar Es Salaam

Create your own walking tour

Start at the Askari Monument on Azikwe Street – the bronze statue commemorates the African troops who fought and died in the Second World War. Then head south to Kivukoni Road to the Azania Front Lutheran Church (built in 1898). Kivukoni is a hive of activity, where locals catch the ferry to nearby Kigamboni.

Chill out on Kunduchi Beach

Head north for serene white sands, tranquil turquoise seas and friendly locals – an escape from the city without actually having to leave it. Other than relaxing on sun loungers and enjoying sea views, there’s a nearby waterpark to keep you entertained.

Explore the Botanical Gardens

The Botanical Gardens were founded in 1893 by a German horticulturalist. Today, they feature plants such as red hibiscus, scarlet flame trees, purple bougainvillea and blue jacaranda. The gardens are also home to a coco de mer palm tree, one of the few outside the Seychelles.

Handmade From Tanzania Oyster Bay, Dar Es Salaam

Helen Espey’s most vivid memory of first visiting Tanzania in 1993, when her architect husband, John, was stationed in Dar es Salaam on a six-month contract, was “sitting on the shores of Oyster Bay as a dhow drifted by silhouetted against the sparkling Indian ocean”. In hindsight it was a prophetic moment. The couple settled in the city’s Oyster Bay neighbourhood, where Helen eventually started her business in 2000 Read more Handmade From Tanzania Oyster Bay, Dar Es Salaam
