KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Dar Es Salaam

  • By using car hire in Dar Es Salaam, you afford yourself the freedom to explore the local area at your own leisure. You don’t have to worry about trying to follow the local public transport timetables, and you can bring your luggage along with you without having to carry it around. You will be free to explore within the city and outside it by using car hire in Dar Es Salaam, visiting local attractions such as Pugu Hills Nature Forest, which may not be as easy to get to by public transport.
  • Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) is one of the major airports in the country and it has plenty of car hire companies to choose from. Some of the companies are located within the main terminal building, such as Sunnycars, First Car Rental, AutoUnion Car Rental and Enterprise, while others, such as Sixt, are located outside the airport building, a little further down the main road that leads to the airport. The offices are generally staffed throughout all scheduled flights, and so if you think that you will arrive out of hours, we recommend that you contact the branch directly.
  • When driving in Dar Es Salaam, you must adhere to the driving laws of Tanzania. You must drive on the left-hand side of the road, and you must give way to vehicles coming from the right in most intersections and at roundabouts. Take care when behind the wheel, as pedestrians frequently jaywalk in Dar Es Salaam, and as the driver of a vehicle, you have a responsibility for their safety, even if they cross without using a designated crossing area.
  • Most of the rain falls in Dar Es Salaam between November and April, so if you plan on travelling at this time, take care, as visibility is reduced for both drivers and pedestrians. For the rest of the year, Dar Es Salaam receives hot weather, and we recommend that you check your tyre pressure and coolant liquid levels before each journey. We also recommend that you avoid driving through the city centre, as this is where most traffic congestion occurs.
  • Book your car hire in Dar Es Salaam at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Dar Es Salaam are around 9% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What car is recommended for driving in Dar Es Salaam?

    If you plan on staying within the coastal city of Dar Es Salaam, then we recommend that you use compact or economy car hire in Dar Es Salaam, as these vehicles tend to be easier to control on the narrow roads of the city and can be easier to park. If you would like to travel a little further afield, then we recommend using SUV or 4x4 Dar Es Salaam car hire, as these vehicles are better equipped for country roads and longer journeys.

  • What is the speed limit in Dar Es Salaam?

    The speed limit in Dar Es Salaam is the same as in the rest of the country of Tanzania, and the speeds will be displayed in kph, both in vehicles and on road signs. In residential or school areas, the speed limit may be reduced to 30 or 40 km/h depending on the signage, but in the rest of the urban areas, the limit is 60 km/h. On both rural roads and motorways, the speed limit is capped at 80 km/h.

  • What are the best places for parking in Dar Es Salaam?

    If you are looking to park your car near the city centre of Dar Es Salaam, then we recommend using either the Sabodo Parkade, on India Street, or the BOT Car Park, which is nearby but a little closer to the coast. If you would like to park on the street, then in most central areas, you must pay; this will likely be paid for via an app on your smartphone. Outside the city centre, you may find areas where parking is free, but we recommend that you use car parks for increased safety.
