Safety Dar Es Salaam/ Zanzibar

Hi !

I'm travelling to Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar next week.

Should I stay inside at evening/night, for safety? Even in Zanzibar?

Thanks!!!

Hi

Depends on how street smart you are ...

Zanzibar stone town the main walking st and sea front you can walk even around 21:30 no big expensive cameras etc, Dar i would say use taxis it is a little different a large city with no real centre

Dar’s no less safe than any other major urban area and I really wouldn’t worry about it. I wouldn’t go walking alone after dark or trusting random strangers to take me somewhere, but I wouldn’t do that in my hometown either. I feel very safe living in Dar.

Hello

Zanzibar is very safe rather than Dar ea Salam

You can walk around the streets even at night myself I like the night market at Forodhani garden special place for Night BBQ 🍗🍖 Almost all Seafood you can eat there also you can read different reviews btn Dar es salam and Zanzibar

Have a nice day
