4 Days Dar es Salaam Beach

4 Days Dar es Salaam Beach

Dar es Salaam - the peaceful haven of Tanzania was unceremoniously inaugurated around early 1860’s by Sultan Majid bin Said of Zanzibar who initiated the development of a harbor town close to the fishing settlement of Mzizima. Its expansion was accelerated twenty years later when the colonial German East Africa Company set up a base here and began using it as their managerial and business headquarters. After the First World War, the British seized control of the metropolis and soon two distinct areas were set up a little apart from the town’s heart, one Colonial Europeans and the other Native Africans. Distinct boroughs also had a section of immigrant Hindustani traders living in it. And as a resultant of trade relations and opportunities Dar es Salaam had with Arabia and Hindustan, the township organically fused a unique ethnic background with elements of African, Arabic, Colonial and Indian cultures.

Tour Highlights:

Embark on a full-day exploration of the bustling city of Dar es Salaam. Affectionately known as ‘Dar’, this once slumberous fishing village has morphed into a thriving metropolis. Your interpretive, privately guided tour takes you to the city’s top attractions such as the lively atmosphere of Dar es Salaam’s fish market, where dhows dock at dawn to offload the night’s delicious catch.

Day 1: Dar Es Salaam And Ferry To Zanzibar

From Dar es Salaam we take the ferry to Zanzibar and the old stone capital of the Omani Sultanate. Sandy beaches, spice tours, snorkelling, diving and trips to other nearby islands. Zanzibar is a fascinating place to visit and to take it all in. Over a thousand years trade between Africa and Arabia has resulted in the blending of Arabs and Africans into a beautiful Swahili coastal culture with; wooden sailing dhows crossing the ocean, coconut plantations and fishing villages with mosques on the beaches. Nungwe beach resort on the north of the island has the most beautiful beaches.
