Budget Travel Ideas in Dar es salaam

Edit This

The Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam is a great cultural center. It offers a good deal of entertainment at a cheap price and is perfect for anyone traveling on a budget. There are ways to keep those dollars in your wallet and still have a great time, enjoying all the city has to offer.


First and foremost, the beaches of Dar es Salaam are some of the most beautiful ones in the world, with pristine white sands and clear, blue water. They offer a close look at the culture of the city and provide visitors with a cheap way to enjoy their time there. They're just north of Dar es Salaam, accessible by taxi or rental car.

Do-It-Yourself Tours

Touring the city of Dar es Salaam is a fantastic way to get to know the culture of the people as well as the city as a whole, and save money at the same time. Professional tours or tour guides can cost fortunes, but all you need to do it yourself is a map, some stopping points, the will and a bottle of water. There are many areas of the city that can be explored, but choosing specific ones to investigate can help you utilize your time and energy efficiently.

For example, you can take a walking tour of Dar es Salaam, making an effort to reach the Askari Monument, the National Museum, the Botanical Gardens, the State House, Azania Front Lutheran Church and Old Boma in one day. Setting goals like this and planning out your course ahead of time will help you get the most out of your time and money while in Dar es Salaam.

Bike the City

Renting bicycles for a day and biking around the city is cheap, provides exercise and allows you to explore the nooks and crannies that might otherwise have gone unnoticed. You can bike to monuments, historical architecture sites and more, and still stay on budget.

Kariakoo Market

The Kariakoo Market, set in the heart of the African area of Dar es Salaam, is one of the busiest areas of the city. You can find a multitude of shops and stalls there. Each of these is covered by a black parasol and sell some variety of vegetables, exotic fruits, freshly cooked meat, fresh fish, herbs, spices, coffees, local brews, textiles, small trinkets and handmade toys of recycled tin and wire. You can simply look or you can try some of the items up for sale at the Market.

Tourism in Tanzania is a big industry, and the tour sites and game parks are simply just beautiful. But we all know that the tourism mart is known for having very high prices, especially if you're a foreigner and go to Tanzania where they call you Mzungu. It can be very frustrating when you constantly meet people who are trying to take advantage of your vulnerability.....

Well for those who might feel or understand what am talking about, I would like to tell you about a tour company found in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. The call themselves YONA Motions, more..
