What to see in Dar es Salaam

You'll likely be organising safari tours and day trips from the city, but there are several things to do within the centre if you have a couple of days to explore.

The National Museum and Botanic Gardens is the most popular attraction in Dar es Salaam. The museum houses the famous fossils discovered by the Leakeys in the 1950s - including a 1.7 million year old hominid skull.

The seaport is one of the city's key attractions due to its immense size and the diversity of vessels that can be seen there - traditional sailing ships known as dhows are dwarfed by tankers and huge transporter ships.

Visit the Swahili neighbourhood for a taste of traditional culture and head to the market to buy souvenirs for friends and family.
