THE HARBOUR OF PEACE – (IT’S AMAZING)
Over the last century, Dar es Salaam has grown from a sleepy Zaramo fishing village into a thriving tropical city of more than four million people. Straddling some of the most important sea routes in the world, it is East Africa’s second-busiest port and Tanzania’s commercial hub. Dar es Salaam’s architecture is a mixture of African, Arab, Indian and German, although much of this is now dwarfed by towering high-rises. Many travellers bypass ‘Dar’ completely; those that linger will encounter the city’s eclectic cultural mix and languid vibe.
