Flights to Dar Es Salaam

Having long been a gateway to the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, its history, bustling markets, restaurants, and beaches are fast persuading travelers to prolong their stay in Dar es Salaam before moving on 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 flavors, an unmistakable Arabic influence, and tangible remnants of colonial Europe. Indeed, the city was once an important hub for the slave trade; 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, it all feels a world away when strolling through the tree-lined streets in the city center; the 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 cafés and traditional restaurants.

Dar es Salaam’s restaurants are a good place to meet fellow travelers 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 socialize 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

Chill out on Kunduchi Beach

Head north for serene white sands, tranquil turquoise seas, and friendly locals; it's 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.

Shop at Kivukoni Fish Market

Get up early and follow your nose to Kivukoni Fish Market, where fishermen sell the catch of the day (or night) to anyone looking for a tasty supper. The market is an invigorating thrill for the senses, and a great way to get a feel for the city.

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.

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
