Traffic in Dar Es Salaam

Jump to last reply

Hi - I need some help with transport logistics at the end of our upcoming safari.

We are ending our trip in Zanzibar on a Monday, and our flight home from Dar Es Salaam is at 3:45AM on Tuesday. Even if we took a chance on the last possible flight out from Zanzibar, it still gets us into DAR around 8PM, and I don't think it would be pleasant to wait around at the airport for so many hours in the wee hours of the night. So, I'm thinking we'll get a day room at a hotel in town.

However, I hear traffic from airport to town is horrible. What's the best time to arrive in DAR to minimize traffic? If we leave town at 2AM for our flight, should that be enough time?

Another idea is to take the ferry, which would get us right to town center. What do you all think of this option?
