  1. Insider info: The airport is on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam quite a distance from the Harbour/Ferry Port which  is in the center of Dar.  Traffic in Dar is horrendous, it can take you 2 hours or longer by taxi from the airport to the ferry port (the distance could be done easily in 30 min if there were no traffic). The taxi will cost anything from US$ 30 upwards to the ferry port.  Make sure you agree on the taxi fare before you get into the taxi!
    By plane: Several local airlines offer flights from Dar to Zanzibar (the flight time is 20 minutes): Precision Air, Zan Air, Coastal Aviation, Tropical Air, and Flight Link to mention the few.

  2. By ferry:  and AZAM MARINE  is the ferry of choice! You can book online. The ferry takes about 2 hours to reach Zanzibar. I do not advice you to take other options regardless the discount or budget for a comfortable ride!
