"Dar es Salaam, colonial character" Top 5 Page for this destination Tanzania Things to Do Tip by sachara

Tanzania Things to Do: 300 reviews and 506 photos

  Dar es Salaam
by sachara

In the citycentre, but also in the suburbs of dar es Salaam, you will find hardly any high rise buildings. So the city has also nowadays still a rather colonial character.

The area of the citycentre east of the ferry ticket offices has wide streets with lots of green and boulevards lined by palmtrees. The area more to the southwest around the Kariakoo market has more narrow and busy streets.

Address: Dar es Salaam
Directions: Swahili Coast of Tanzania.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
