Driving is on the left side of the road and you'll most likely need an international driving license as well as a major credit card to rent a car.

Driving in the city

* This only applies to Dar es Salaam, since all other cities and towns are relatively small and easy to get around in.

The city center is extremely congested from 9AM-6PM, Monday to Friday. There are few traffic lights, and the streets are very narrow.

It's a dog-eat-dog kind of place, so offensive driving skills are a must, as no one will let you pass if you just sit and wait at stops signs.

Streets are crowded with parked and moving cars, SUVs, lorries, scooters, and very muscular men pulling insanely overloaded carts.

People can spend hours stuck in traffic jams, especially around Kariakoo Market.

From 4-wheel drive vehicles to mini buses and motorbikes, please enquire

By car

Warning: It's not advised to drive in Tanzania, or throughout most of Africa, unless you have already experienced the driving conditions in developing countries.

Nonetheless, here is some useful information for those thinking to undertake the challenge.

Drive on the left side of the road

* Tanzanians drive on the left (like in the UK, India, Australia, Japan, and other countries), as opposed to driving on the right, like in North America and most European countries.

Experienced drivers will need about half a day of driving around before adjusting to the change.

Although the gear shift, windshield wipers and turn signal activators are reversed, luckily, the pedals are not. Just follow the traffic.

However, even with some practice, you should always be vigilant, as you could easily find yourself disoriented, which could put you at risk of a head-on collision or hitting a pedestrian.

Choice of vehicle

* If you're hiring a car when you get here, your best option is a 4x4 sport utility vehicle with good road clearance, especially if you plan on going to a safari trip.

Look for the Land Cruiser, Hilux Surf (4Runner), and Range Rover vehicles.

Avoid mini-SUVs, such as the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CRV, because they can't always negotiate the poor road conditions in most of Tanzania's national parks.
