Fodor's Expert Review Askari Monument

Dar es Salaam Monument

This bronze statue was erected by the British in 1927 in memory of African troops who died during World War I; the word askari means "soldier" in Swahili. It stands on the site of a monument erected by Germany to celebrate its victory here in 1888. That monument stood only five years before being demolished in 1916.
