Dar City Tour Details

Dar Es Salaam City Tour Half Day Excursion covers Tanzania’s largest city and logistical center, Dar Es Salaam, which is situated on the Indian Ocean coast. Although it is affectionately referred to as “Dar,” but Dodoma is actually the capital city of the nation. Dar Es Salaam, which is situated on a sizable natural harbor in southern Tanzania, is predominantly a port city.

Although the name “Dar Es Salaam” means “haven of peace,” the city, but is the home to approximately 3 million people, is far from quiet. Most travelers stop at Dar Es Salaam on their way to one of Tanzania’s magnificent southern national parks, like the Nyerere, Mikumi, and Ruaha, or to take a ferry to the fascinating Zanzibar archipelago.
