Getting around Dar es Salaam

The public transport system in Dar es Salaam is limited. Dalla-dallas are small minivans with specific routes. They’re cheap and fairly easy to use, but a little geographical knowledge of the city helps. Taxis are privately owned (there are no official taxis) and prices should always be agreed before travelling.

Caution should be exercised, especially in busy areas such as Kariakoo Market, against pickpockets and bag snatchers, as muggings are not an infrequent occurrence in the city. Visitors should always keep money and valuables secure and out of sight, avoiding quiet areas and walking alone at night.

How to get from the airport to the city

Travellers can take a flight to Dar es Salaam by flying to Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), located about 7 miles (12 km) from the city centre. When hotel pick-ups are available, they may be the best way to get into the city. Otherwise, there are taxis, where the price should be negotiated beforehand, or city buses – bus stops can be found a five minute walk from the airport.
