Sights of Dar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam (House of Peace) is a bustling, steamy port city, the largest in Tanzania. The port is a major gateway for east Africa, especially vital for the landlocked countries of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the DRC, Zambia, and Malawi.

Sights of Zanzibar

On Zanzibar, I enjoyed the stunning white beaches, the lush gardens, and the winding streets of Stone Town. I was especially interested in the island’s history of international trade, resulting religious tolerance (the Anglican Cathedral’s clock tower was donated by Sultan Barghash), and socialist experiments.

Daladalas of Zanzibar

Unlike on the mainland, the daladalas of Zanzibar are mostly converted Toyota Dyna trucks. Benches run along the side of the bed, so passengers sit facing each other. A roof provides shade, cover from rain, and a place to store goods. Tarps are rolled up on the edges of the roof, ready to be unfurled to close off the otherwise open-air passenger area from rainstorms.
