Airport Shuttle Services

We offer shuttle services from and to the airport, from just about any point in Dar Es Salaam or Zanzibar. The cost depends on the distance between the 2 points, as well as the number of people traveling. All our shuttles are private, so we cannot board you with a different person/group in the same vehicle.

Trying to Catch the Last Ferry to Zanzibar?

Attempting to catch the last ferry from Dar Es Salaam to Zanzibar, which leaves at 16:00, could sometimes be costly. The distance between the airport and the ferry terminal is only 12km. It takes about 30-45min to get across. However, the traffic in Dar Es Salaam can be unpredictable. Therefore, we advise all arrivals after 14:30 to take our last flight from Dar Es Salaam to Zanzibar at 17:10 if they're to make it across on the same day. Otherwise, they'd need to spend the night in Dar Es Salaam in order to ferry to Zanzibar the next day.

Getting between the International and Domestic Terminals

Both terminals are within the same premises, though entered through different gates. The gates are about 1km apart.
