Dar es Salaam Budget Travel

Tanzania’s largest city, Dar es Salaam, is a thriving city with a lot to offer – making Dar es Salaam budget travel an essential part of the Tanzania experience.

Dar es Salaam is a hustling, bustling seaport that includes some of the most important sea routes in the world. Life in Dar es Salaam revolves around the huge harbour, with businesses stretching out from here into side and main streets.

Dar es Salaam Budget Safaris

Dar es Salaam budget safaris are a penny pinching travellers dream, as it is easy to travel to the islands of Zanzibar and the remote game reserves, such as Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park and the Mahale Mountains Nation Park.

Access to Tanzania's iconic safari destinations, Serengeti and Ngorongoro, is also easy from Dar es Salaam.

A fish market is found on the northern side of the harbour, Kivukoni Front. Every morning at dawn the fishermen come back to shore to offload the nights catch.

The vendors along India Street and the intersecting Indira Ghandi Street are also a must-see and have a wide range of supplies and goods.
