Activities in Dar-es-salaam | Cultural day Tours
Embark on a full-day exploration of the bustling city of Dar es Salaam. Affectionately known as ‘Dar’, this once slumberous fishing village has morphed into a thriving metropolis. Your interpretive, privately guided tour takes you to the city’s top attractions such as the lively atmosphere of Dar es Salaam’s fish market, where dhows dock at dawn to offload the night’s delicious catch. Amble down pungently spicy India Street, where the flavours of the East are a feast for the senses, at the stark purple of twilight, clusters of Dar es Salaam street food carts, specializing in delicious Indian food emerge. Bright red tomatoes, raw onions, green chilies, and fresh coriander are the beginnings of any enticing Indian street food snack. An absolute must is a Zanzibar Mix, an Indian inspired Zanzibari Tanzanian bowl of curry soup with heaps of delectable toppings.

YES, But Dar es Salaam is certainly not the first destination that comes to mind when you think of a trip to Tanzania. For most visitors, the city only serves as a gateway to other more popular destinations, such as Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, and Serengeti. But that’s not to say that Dar es Salaam is entirely devoid of any charm.
It Depends; Dar es Salaam is full of people, whereas Zanzibar is a secluded and peaceful place. A secluded place makes it a perfect abode for lovers, newly married couples, or honeymooners. Right from the morning sun to the evening moon, there’s a lot of things to do in Zanzibar for your beloved one and you.
YES, but exercise normal precautions, and avoid travelling at night alone.
Tanzania is deeply conservative, so both men and women should cover their knees and shoulders in public. Traditionally, women only wear skirts, but it’s fine for foreign women to wear jeans or trousers – as long as they aren’t too form-fitting.
