Discover the Sights of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Once a sleepy fishing village in the mid-1800s, the bustling seaside city of Dar es Salaam has transformed itself to East Africa’s second-busiest port and the main hub for Tanzania. It’s attracted travelers from around the world, and African, Arab, British, German, and Indian influences can be seen everywhere.

It’s also resulted in a population of over 4,000,000 in a relatively condensed area, which can cause more than a few traffic jams. So depending on what you’d like to do, there are a number of ways to explore the city.

To get a taste of local life, visit the City Mall and its dozens of shops, or go to the Msasani Bay waterfront for the Slipway Shopping Center, markets, boutiques, and restaurants. If relaxing under the sun is more your speed, head to Oyster Bay and Coco Beach.

Or you can venture further from shore to the Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve. The Reserve’s nine uninhabited islands are home to pristine beaches and tropical ecosystems of coral reefs, beds of seagrass, and mangroves, making it a popular day trip for visitors and locals alike.
