Getting around Dar es Salaam

The public transport system in Dar es Salaam is limited. Dalla-dallas are small minivans with specific routes. They’re cheap and fairly easy to use, but a little geographical knowledge of the city helps. Taxis are privately owned (there are no official taxis) and prices should always be agreed before traveling.

Caution should be exercised, especially in busy areas such as Kariakoo Market, against pickpockets and bag snatchers. Muggings are not an infrequent occurrence in the city. Visitors should always keep money and valuables secure and out of sight, avoiding quiet areas and walking alone at night.
