Dar es Salaam

By ~ Lindo Travel


Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam is a Tanzania’s largest city and its economic capital. Located in a quiet bay off the Indian Ocean coast, the city has grown in economic importance to become a prosperous center in the East African region. Its bustling harbor is the main port in Tanzania and its industrial area produces products for export and use throughout the country. Government offices all have their main base in Dar es Salaam, and diplomatic missions and non-governmental organizations in the country all have a presence in this bustling urban city.

During German occupation in the early 20th Century, Dar es Salaam was a centre of colonial administration and the main contact point between the agricultural mainland and the world of trade and commerce in the Indian Ocean and Swahili coast. Remnants of colonial presence, both German and British, can still be seen in the landmarks and architecture around the city. The National Museum, the village Museum and many colorful markets are well worth a visit. Numerous historical landmarks, including St Joseph’s Cathedral, the White Father’s Mission House, the Botanical Gardens, and the old State House make for an interesting walking tour around the waterfront and city Centre.
