Dar es Salaam Airport Shuttles
Less than 10 miles from the city and known for its high-volume traffic, Julius Nyerere International Airport makes getting where you need to be difficult for first timers. Make it simple by reserving a shuttle instead, booking through either local companies or area providers for the perk of custom drop-offs and luggage handling services.
Have your shuttle driver take you to the coolest neighborhood in town by planning ahead of time, choosing between popular districts like Oyster Bay, located north of downtown and offering coveted access to Coco Beach as well as beloved restaurants like The Two O’ Six, while Masaki provides peninsula overlooks of Msasani Bay, ferries to Bongoyo Island, and the scenic entertainment inside Sea Cliff Hotel. Go for the gold by staying somewhere central instead, choosing between Kisutu many 5-star attractions and historic landmarks, or Upanga’s close access to Muhimbili University and western-style eats at Texas Grill.
Make sure you don’t get lost in the process by keeping track of all important documents and information, starting with your shuttle reservation. Print out your confirmation email the moment it comes in, keeping it in a travel journal with other important bookings, whether it’s for Waterbuck Safaris or Safari Big 5, also scanning personal identification, passports, and medical prescriptions in case of emergencies. Keep those digital scans somewhere besides your physical person, choosing between cloud storage devices or your email's inbox.

Have fun with what’s around the airport as much as what’s within, enjoying unique getaways located on the southwest side of Dar es Salaam, from soccer games at the astounding Tanzania National Stadium to a day of shopping in the Chang’ombe ward, whether it’s at Quality Center Mall or Mkuki House.

Dar es Salaam Destinations
Get lost in the region’s natural scenery once you’ve got a solid understanding of its background, exploring the four islands off the coast of Dar es Salaam as well, choosing between the busy Bongoyo and Mbudya Islands, or the smaller (and quieter) Fungu Yasini and Pangavini Islands. Enjoy an afternoon at the busy Coco Beach as well, located north of town and home to the memorable lookouts of Coco Beach Cliff, or for controlled nature, take the family to Dar es Salaam Zoo, home to exotic safari creatures, bright birds, and monkeys. Take a break from the heat by cooling off at Fun City Kigamboni, a huge waterpark south of the city, also considering an art walk through the local works showcased at Tinga Tinga Arts Co-operative Society. Save room for dinner when the night winds down, going to town on the cash-only seafood at Cape Town Fish Market for a taste of the city’s best.
