Dar-es-Salaam City Tour Full Day Excursion Itinerary
0800 Hours: In the morning after breakfast, we’ll pick you up from your hotel/ residence and start our city tour by visiting the Kivukoni Fish Market. The Kivukoni Fish Market is one of the most chaotic places in Dar es Salaam where frantic trading more typical of Wall Street stockbrokers is enacted over the best fish from the Indian Ocean.
From 0600 Hours in the morning until 2000 Hours at night, people as brightly dressed as the fish they come to buy, visit the market and pick up everything from tuna and barracuda to octopus and squid.
After leaving Kivukoni Fish Market you’ll see the Ocean Road Hospital and the State House. You will have a chance to visit the nearby Botanical Gardens which were established a hundred years ago by Germans. Opposite the garden is Karimjee Hall and you‘ll be able to see the fantastic architecture while your guide explains the history behind the building.
Next, you’ll visit the National Museum, home to many historical treasures with a wide variety of exhibits including archaeological findings, rock paintings, ancient footprints, the remains of the first humans, and more.
The Mwenge Carvers Market is made up of small shops with stands displaying carvings of different kinds, traditional dresses, the Tinga Tinga paints, and more. You’ll be able to browse the stalls, chat with the carvers and buy souvenirs if you wish.
