Dar Es Salaam is a charming mix of marketplaces, bazaars, beaches and historic buildings. Whether it's a beach holiday or a safari you're after, Dar Es Salaam is the place to be.
Beaches: Dar Es Salaam is famous for its white-sand beaches. Kigamboni Beach is just across the channel via ferry and is one of the most popular beaches in the city. It's not public so a small fee to the hotel will have to be paid.
Safaris: If you want to see some of Tanzania's incredible wildlife, take your Dar Es Salaam car hire to Mikumi National Park and spend the day exploring. Bongoyo Island is also a great day trip.
Makumbusho Village: This open-air museum is quite unique as it shows many types of houses built by Tanzania's different ethnic groups. There are even dance performances a few times a week.
