Dar Es Salaam Airport to Ferry Port: Transfers and Taxi
Transfers from Dar Es Salaam Airport to Ferry Port
Who does not want to enjoy a sea ride? Apart from being a cargo shipping centre, the port of Dar Es Salaam offers worldwide tourists an amazing sailing experience as well.
The easiest way to reach the port from Julius Nyerere International air hub is to get by private transfer. There are also other travel options like a taxi or a shuttle service but an already booked car will be more economical and offer you a relaxing experience. No problem how much late your flight lands at night, our transfers can pick you any time. The hiring procedure is very quick and simple. Go to the Kiwitaxi website’s main page and fill in the location/destination fields. It will show you the three variants from the air hub to the port. Select one according to your preferences, make an online payment, and get ready for a promising ride. It will cost you from 50 EUR with a travel time of half an hour. Don’t forget to order a child seat separately.
Taxi from Dar Es Salaam Airport to Ferry Port
Many cabs can be spotted as you come out of the Arrivals. All of these are without meter which means you must bargain with a driver over the fare. They may start from a much higher price but that’s the test of your negotiation skills. If you are good at it, you can get a ticket for cheap costs. The payment can be done in USD as well as in local currency. It is recommended to pay in local shillings to save your money. If you are leaving for the Zanzibar port, expect a price between 30,000-50,000 TSH. An airport cab can take you to the seaport within 20- 40 minutes depending upon traffic. However, there is a serious security concern because some illegal taxis are also mingled up among official cabs.
Public Transport from Dar Es Salaam Airport to Ferry Port
Various buses are departing from the stations located 500m and 1km away from Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 respectively. These buses operated by SUMATRA lead to the city centre for 400 Tshs. From the city station, different vans run towards your destination.
Keep in mind if you have more luggage, the buses will charge you an extra price.
If you land at night, traveling by public transport will be risky.
Buses take longer than a transfer or a taxi to reach a destination, so if you have already purchased a ferry ticket, it would be very difficult to get there on time.
