Our driver was exactly what we hoped and a little more: punctual, responsible trough out the entire duration of our trip, understanding and efficient, overall very proficient. Also, thanks to the support team who was very efficient with helping us locate our driver at the arrival ( it was our first time in Bulgaria and we were a little lost in translation). Thank you! Madalina Dimache
All went very well. He had a board clearly marking my name. He was extremely pleasant and courteous. Spoke a little English. Would use kiwitaxi again. Thank you. Susan Stone
The taxi driver was very open to conversation, entertaining as well as instructive and took care into making the travel as pleasant as possible while driving through the outskirts of Hamburg. Furthermore, he took me right to my hotel door in front of the airport even when he didnt actually have to! A wonderful experience. 100% recommend. Ana Redon Herranz
In case of Corona the Taxi Service was running without any complications. The driver was very friendly and kind. Drove very smooth. And the price was incredible. Thank you for your help in this strange time with Corona to helped us come home as soon as possible. Sarah F.
The driver was there on time, even at bit earlier, he was very courteous, and he arrived in Dubai well ahead of time whilst always driving carefully and observing the speed limit. The car was spacious and clean. So, all in all it was a very positive experience. D. Fuehrer
The driver was on time. He was easy to find. He was very helpful with the bags both at pickup and the destination. He knew where he was going and the vehicle was more than adequate for 4 people. What more could we ask for, very pleasant experience overall. Diane Sandrejko

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.

  1. Keep in mind if you have more luggage, the buses will charge you an extra price.

  2. If you land at night, traveling by public transport will be risky.

  3. 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.

About the Route

The travel distance among these stops is about 10.6 km via Julius K. Nyerere Road. The road structure is well suited for cars.
