It's alive with energy, people and nightlife, but keep your wits about you.
Dar es Salaam is a typical African city, full of energy, people, bad traffic and corrupt police trying to keep order. It can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to go; if it's your first time to Africa it might even make you wonder why you decided to go on holiday to East Africa – especially if you arrive at night during the more humid months.
Dar is pretty much divided into the main city and the peninsula, where all the ambassadors stay and the hotels are, such as the Golden Tulip and the Sea Cliff Hotel next to the military base just north of the city centre.

More on Dar es Salaam holidays
Like any city, it's about who you know and knowing where to go. There are some great restaurants, such as Addis in Dar, Mediterraneo and the Karambezi.
The nightlife is also very busy, with massive clubs and casinos to keep you up all night if that's what you enjoy. As in any city in the world, you need to be alert for opportunists, ladies of the night or the odd taxi driver trying his luck. Look after your things, be careful who you are with after midnight and don’t buy anything off the street. You can still dance the night away in typical African fashion and enjoy Dar in a perfectly safe way.
