Transportation to Dar Es Salaam Airport from the City Center

Located in the east of Tanzania, Dar Es Salaam is one of the largest cities in the country. For exploring this city on the shores of ocean, you can start with the city center first. You can go by boat to Zanzibar Island, which is about two hours away from the city. The journey will not be boring since you will be accompanied with a unique landscape.

It takes about 35-40 minutes to go to Julius Nyerere International Airport, which is 12 kilometers from the city center. When Dar Es Salaam's population started to get crowded, alternatives in public transportation are considered. Buses, minibuses, taxis, trampolines, tuktuks ... But it can be easily observed that the buses that serve are very old. These buses which are considered to be old-fashioned in Europe are the most important new transport vehicle here.

Dar Es Salaam is the largest port in Tanzania. This is why sea transportation has developed in this region.


The most common means of transportation in the city of Dar Es Salaam are buses and minibuses. The prices of buses used throughout the city can vary according to the destination. Also there can be delays sometimes.


You can also use minibuses except from bus and taxi transportation. But minibuses are one of the most used means of public transportation here. For this reason, they are very crowded and tourists do not prefer to use minibuses usually. You can also take a ride in the downtown with these vehicles called 'daladala'.


These are considered to be the main means of public transportation in Dar Es Salaam. We can say they carry passengers at fairly reasonable prices. In addition to that, tuktuks and courier motors are also providing cheaper transportation compared to taxis. Courier motors, which are mostly used for people’s transportation in Tanzania, are the best solution for getting rid of traffic. Because it is a private vehicle, it is for sure that you will be comfortable while travelling.
