Experience the bustling atmosphere of the Mwenge Woodcarvers Market, where Tanzanian artisans showcase their masterful woodwork. Pass through Indian and Arabic streets in the city center and visit the busiest market of a country, Kariakoo. Around lunch time, we will treat you to a special Tanzanian local dish, pilau or biriyani, made of rice, blend of aromatic spices, vegetables and meat of your choice (upon prior arrangement) – or meatless for vegetarians.

Admire the stunning architecture of the Azania Front Church, a true gem of the city, and striking urban contrasts at local Kivukoni fish market and at Twin Towers, the tallest modern buildings that grace the city’s skyline.

At the end of the tour, if your time permits to spend the full day with us, treat yourself to a delicious seafood dinner or just a mug of local beer at a lively place accompanied by live music.

Come and feel the vibe yourself!
