Dar-es-salaam City – Affordable Taxi: WhatsApp/Call: +255 759 694 668

Dar es Salaam is one of the world’s most underappreciated cities. Warm tropical weather all year round. Fresh, local, organic food everywhere. Dozens of beautiful inexpensive beach resorts and all manner of beach and ocean activities – sailing, kayaking, scuba, kite surfing. Vibrant expatriate community that “makes its own fun” through different events and theme nights. 

Overwhelmingly safe and calm compared to other cities of its size in the region. Sure there are frustrations and traffic is bad, but they’re fairly predictable. Only 90 minute boat ride away from Zanzibar for world class getaways or a bit further for other easy weekend trips. Approximately 1/3 the cost of living in New York or less than other US metro areas. Dar es Salaam is a growing and prospering city that’s improving in quality of life each year.

It is also the main teaching language used for all higher education institutions. You will find that the majority of the people that you come in contact with are fluent in English and have a surprisingly good command of the language.

The currency used throughout the country is the Tanzanian shilling. Mastercard and Visa are widely accepted and there are many ATMs dispensing local currency throughout the country.

A visa is required when traveling to Tanzania from the United States and Canada. Currently, this can be obtained at arrival airports and border crossings and is valid for 90 days. A valid passport is mandatory. Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond the date you expect to leave Tanzania.

The best time to travel to Tanzania is from June to October when the country is at its driest.

Visitors typically pre-book a safari package prior to arriving in Tanzania. This package includes the services of an English-speaking driver-guide and a 4X4 vehicle, which in turn will be their primary mode of transportation. There is also a good flight network usually on small aircraft connecting Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Zanzibar Island and other major centres and with major national parks. The two main forms of local transportation within Tanzania include taxis and dalla-dallas (mini buses).

With an immense range of wildlife, beautiful beaches and much more there is something the whole family will love in Tanzania! Beaches, game reserves, and world class national parks and accommodation all await

There are no compulsory vaccinations required for Tanzania, however, we recommend you consult with your local travel clinic for the most up to date recommendations, particularly in regards to malaria prophylactics. Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required if you are coming from or have transited through an airport of a country where yellow fever occurs.
