GUIDE ON DAR ES SALAAM IN TANZANIA

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. Today, Dar es Salaam is a bustling city, proud of its rich heritage (read more on tour activities) and a vital center for commerce and administration. It is also the lifeline of Tanzania’s transportation network.

The Julius Nyerere Airport of Dar es Salaam is the country’s main airport, and the city’s harbor serves as a trading hub and the nation’s shipping connection to the world. The city is also served by the Chinese constructed TAZARA railway lines, and many of the major highways of Tanzania begin from Dar es Salaam. The city also has a thriving industrial region that manufactures goods for distribution within and out of the country. It is Tanzania’s largest city, and like any other international commercial city, you will see restaurants, bars, hotels, resorts, banks, international embassies, business establishments and administrative offices. The city sees visitors from all around the world, every year, for business and leisure. The remnants of its history like monuments and colonial architecture provide an attraction for touring, and it also serves as a springboard for AfricanMecca holidayers to Tanzania’s many wildlife sanctuaries, parks and reserves such as Mikumi, Selous, Ruaha, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Katavi, Mahale Mountains, Gombe and many more. Yet others simply visit for the warm tropical climate, to enjoy the beaches and the warm hospitality that is so characteristic of the people of Tanzania.
