Is Dar es Salaam worth a visit?


we are planning the usual Tansania trip with Safari in the North and relaxing at the beach in Zanzibar. We arrive in the evening in Dar es Salaam.

Is it worth staying 2 nights or shall we try to directly go to Kilimanjaro / Arusha?

Which area of the city should one be staying in a hotel?

Many thanks for your hints,

  1. Hello all!
    The city is definitely worth looking around for a day or two. The people are so friendly, and it might be nice to have a bit of time to see urban/developed Africa before heading to Arusha. Arusha is also great, but definitely smaller (fewer people speak English, etc.)
    All the best!

  2. Tanzania’s trip is full of worth. Have a nice journey..good luck..

  3. Sorry it a private answer.
