Destinations / Africa

Dar es Salaam means “place of peace” in Arabic, but Tanzania’s largest city is a bustling metropolis rich with culture and incredible experiences. While not exactly cheap, a visit can certainly be affordable, and done for less than $100.

 

Begin with breakfast at Chaiwala Café for delicious coffee and a quick bite for less than $10. From there, head to the nearby Askari Monument, a testament to the local soldiers who fought in World War I, said to mark the exact center of the city. The Mwenge Woodcarvers Market is just a short trip away, so head over there and snag a couple of souvenirs made by local artists. Set aside $20. Next, make your way to the Kivukoni Fish Market for an authentic market experience in Dar es Salaam. It can get a little ripe, so consider bringing along nose plugs.

 

Stop for lunch at Mamboz for some incredible local barbeque. A meal will cost you $10.

 

Next, head to the Village Museum for a look at more than a dozen traditional Tanzanian huts. Entrance is roughly $3. You’ll also want to check out the National Museum for House and Culture. The museum showcases a wealth of artifacts ranging from fossils and statues to antique cars. Entrance is also $3.

 

You can’t visit Dar es Salaam without a stop at one of its gorgeous beaches, so make your way to Coco Beach, otherwise known as Oyster Bay. It’s location on the Msasani Peninsula offers spectacular views, an escape from the hustle of the city, and a chance to get up close to local wildlife.

Finally, end with a delicious meal at 305 Karafuu to sample some of the seafood Dar es Salaam is widely known for, at only about $30 a meal.
