Those wanting to experience the authentic side of Tanzania, a visit to the Village Museum should be fun. Here you will learn about the country’s tribes and see the Tanzanian traditional huts. You can also watch festive traditional dances and drum performances
Vibrant Mandazi Road is home to a myriad of bars and cafes and the ideal spot to mix with locals and enjoy some roast nyama choma (grilled meat) or a local beer. For those more into nature, Pugu Hills, 25kms from the centre of Dar, is ideal for hiking, bird watching and its famous bat-caves.
Beach lovers will enjoy Coco Beach on the weekends – delicious street food, parties and concerts abound. It is not the ideal swimming beach so head out to Bongoyo Island as a day trip. It is a marine reserve and the warm Indian Ocean is home to plenty to colourful sea life, so a snorkelling excursion should definitely be on the cards.
