Dar es Salaam

There are two trains running out of Dar Es Salaam from different stations. Tanzania Railway Limited is a train that travels through the center of Tanzania to Dodoma and further West, even up to Mwanza. Tazara has a large train station just out on the edge of town. Bus travel is generally reliable if you pick the right company. Taxis are available outside the stations for TSh5,000 or more for a taxi ride from downtown, depending on your negotiation skills.

Population Size: 4,364,541

Fast Fact: Tanzanians seem to value arriving quickly more than arriving safely (‘Mungu akipenda, tutafika’ – If god wants it, we shall arrive)
