Dar es Salaam Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, is the largest city in East Africa, the largest Swahili-speaking city in the world, and a major cultural and economic hub of the region. For visitors it's a starting point for safaris or trips to the exotic islands of Zanzibar off the coast, but the city itself offers a lot of charm and some interesting sights. Dar es Salaam car rentals make it easy to see sights in the vicinity of the city, including some top-notch beaches.

Driving in and around Dar es Salaam

Julius Nyerere International Airport is 7.5 miles from the city center. Car rentals in Dar es Salaam make it easy to reach top tourist attractions -- such as the national museum with its five distinct properties, showcasing the heritage and natural treasures of Tanzania, and the botanical gardens, a pleasant place to walk around and see some of the region's native flora and fauna. On the outskirts of the city, but within driving distance of hotels in Dar es Salaam, is the Village Museum. Walk around the open-air site to see the traditional dwellings of Tanzania's various ethnic groups, and view depictions of day to day life, arts and crafts, and the social traditions of rural communities. In the afternoon, you can watch tribal dance performances. Opposite the museum is the Mwenge Carvers' Market, where you can see artisans at work and purchase souvenirs. If you enjoy spending days on sandy beaches and swimming in the warm Indian Ocean, drive to Kigamboni or to Coco Beach on the Msasani Peninsula.
