Highlights and main attractions of Dar es Salaam
Dar es Salaam, or Dar as it is affectionately known, is a welcoming city with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly locals. In a large natural port on the east coast of Tanzania, here you can while away the hours watching small dhows float past large cargo ships, or admire the city’s contrasts, where tall office buildings stand to your left and lively street sellers sell their wares to your right.
This dusty and bustling African city would usually be your stopover after a wildlife safari throughout Tanzania’s national parks, on the way to Zanzibar or Pemba for some well-earned relaxation.
The city is an attraction in itself and the smiling locals and laid back lifestyle are sure to draw you in.
