Accommodation ranges here from luxury hotels to small boutique resorts and in the past few years there has been an increase in travellers spending more time here to experience this fascinating city. We like to encourage our clients about half an hour south of Dar to the wonderful resort of Ras Kutani, a beautiful Polynesian-style hideaway and ideal way to wind down after a safari, without venturing to the islands of Zanzibar.
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.
