AUTHENTIC TOURS & PERSONALIZED EXCURSIONS AROUND DAR ES SALAAM WITH AFRICANMECCA

Dar es Salaam with her many charms, has much to see and offer her visitants. With your accommodations sorted, you will want to explore the city’s best attractions and places to visit. For the younger tourist generation, if it is a night of partying and music you want, visit the Rouge, the city’s most happening night club at the Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam, or if it is gaming you are looking for, visit the casino at the New Africa Hotel. For an in-depth look into her past, go to the National Museum and House of Culture for cultural ethnographic collections, artifacts and vestiges from the Tanganyika fight for freedom, history on slavery and colonialism, evolution displays and more. The Village Museum is a good place for traditional dances, music and other cultural shows at appointed times while the St. Joseph’s Cathedral, White Father’s Mission House, Lutheran Church, Saifee Masjid, Ithnasheri Mosque and the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir depict the rich historic fusion and religious tolerance of Dar es Salaam. Pick up some delightful curios and works of ethnic art at the Nyumba ya Sanaa, which means House of Art in Swahili. Set up to showcase Tanzanian art and craftsmanship, it also sometimes hosts displays of music and dance. You can also look for delicately carved Makonde artifacts or lovely Tinga Tinga paintings. When you reach the Askari Monument (soldier in Swahili), you will know you have reached the actual heart of the city – it hosts a bronze figurine memorial of the fallen native soldiers who fought in World War I in support of Great Britain’s “Carrier Corps” military strategy against the German forces under Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck commandership.

Thereafter, Kivukoni Fish Market by the harbor – a thriving ocean produce market for the locals. Always have a local AfricanMecca guide with you at all times during your tour of Dar es Salaam - both for your safety in an unfamiliar city and also a guided sightseeing experience with wealth of insider information your city guide has got to offer. Back in the heart of the city, off Samora Machel Avenue and overlooking Karimjee Hall, established during the German era, the Botanical Gardens, though today much smaller in size, retain their splendid natural beauty bringing lushness to an ever-growing city. For more natural sights and aquatic interest, take a boat ride to the Bongoyo and Mbudya Island Marine Reserves. Here, you can take diving and snorkeling expeditions to explore the rich marine world with a wide range of coral and fish species. For other things to do, you can visit the Kunduchi Ruins, 15 miles (25 kilometers) north of Dar es Salaam showcasing 15th-century Arabian reminders with oriental bits and pieces. If you are traveling with kids, you can take them to Waterworld, an aquatic amusement park close to Hotel White Sands in the same Kunduchi area – the northern beach of Dar es Salaam.
