Full day Dar es Salaam tour

Revel in the vibrancy of an African port

The essence of the full day city tour

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.

Catch a glimpse of the historic Central Railway Station, and the architectural marvels of the St Joseph’s Metropolitan Cathedral and the Greek Orthodox Church. Browse through a traditional souk (bazaar), heaving with people morning, noon and night. Exhilarating and kaleidoscopic you will be sure to find virtually anything here in the jostling  mass of vibrant colours, textured  fabrics, local food and hand embellished trinkets. Head to the Mwenge Carver’s Market for beautiful traditional African sculptures and crafts before exploring the National Museum and the open-air Village Museum.

The architecture of Tanzania is a fusion of Swahili, colonial and Asian influences, but much of this is now overshadowed by gleaming towering high-rises. Offering an eclectic cultural mix, fabulous craft markets, superb restaurants and nearby magnificent golden beaches and lush islands Dar is a great place to explore.
