South African Airways offers the convenience of direct flights to Dar es Salaam. ‘Dar’ as it is popularly known, is the former capital of Tanzania and its most populous city. The area is an important economic centre, ranking as one of the fastest growing cities in Africa, both economically and in terms of population.

The city skyline is fast changing with shiny new developments towering over the gorgeous historical buildings in the old city. As the hustle and bustle of the area’s business day slows, the evening turns to festive dining, dancing and music to create a charming tropical nightlife.

Julius Nyerere International Airport is located roughly 12km from the urban hub. The hub is served by various public transport networks including taxis, motorbikes, minibuses and buses. Car hire and shuttle facilities are also available at the airport.

SAA flies into Dar es Salaam 10 times a week and you can rest assured that these flights offer the most direct nonstop route between South Africa and Tanzania at the most convenient times delivering world-class service.

The area links some of the world’s most important sea routes which turned Dar es Salaam from a sleepy fishing village into one of East Africa’s busiest ports. Despite the economic development and the buzz the city still has all the down to earth charm of a sleepy village – all thanks to attractions such as its craft markets, sandy beaches and the languid tropical islands nearby.

Dar es Salaam is also the gateway to some of the worlds most famous tourist attractions such as Zanzibar – Spice Island, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro And Mount Kilimanjaro.

So, whether it be for business, leisure or adventure make sure Dar es Salaam is on your list of places to visit.  For other spectacular destinations in South Africa and the world, or for more information about Dar es Salaam, visit our destinations page.
