In the summer months every year, Des es Salaam hosts a Charity Goat Race which provides a day of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy such as goat racing, fancy dress, live music, arts and crafts and delicious food.

The Months from December to March tend to be the hottest times of the year and this is when most visit Dar es Salaam.

Although the 7th July is a national holiday across Tanzania and many enjoy the day off work, Dar es Salaam also becomes a hive of activity with the International Trade Fair. 18 different countries across the globe attend the fair resulting in over 1500 exhibitions being displayed at the Mwalimu J.K Nverrer Trade Fair Grounds. During this period Dar experiences a high volume of visitors and locals, so avoid this time of year if you are looking for a cheap flight to Dar es Salaam.

Destination overview

Dar es Salaam is often a stop-off point for people on international flights who are on their way to a safari holiday. However, if you book a flight to Dar es Salaam, there are some interesting attractions in the city itself, including the National Museum, the Makumbusho Village Museum, Mawazo contemporary art gallery and the Askari Monument. Dhow cruises to the island marine reserve of Bongoyo are deservedly popular. Travellers seeking an authentic taste of city life may want to check out the busy fish market, Kivukoni Front and Kariakoo Market. Oyster Bay, meanwhile, is an upmarket enclave of glamorous mansions and the location of Coco Beach, a good spot for a swim, drink or lunch.

Getting around Dar es Salaam

The public transport system in Dar es Salaam is limited. Dalla-dallas are small minivans with specific routes. They’re cheap and fairly easy to use, but a little geographical knowledge of the city helps. Taxis are privately owned (there are no official taxis) and prices should always be agreed before travelling.

Caution should be exercised, especially in busy areas such as Kariakoo Market, against pickpockets and bag snatchers, as muggings are not an infrequent occurrence in the city. Visitors should always keep money and valuables secure and out of sight, avoiding quiet areas and walking alone at night.

How to get from the airport to the city

Travellers can take a flight to Dar es Salaam by flying to Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), located about 7 miles (12 km) from the city centre. When hotel pick-ups are available, they may be the best way to get into the city. Otherwise, there are taxis, where the price should be negotiated beforehand, or city buses – bus stops can be found a five minute walk from the airport.
