Dar Es Salaam - Shopping

Shopping in Dar es Salaam

Slipway Shopping Mall on the waterfront in Msasani offers quality goods at a price while Shoppers’ Plaza in the same area is the largest mall in Tanzania. Look out for A Novel Idea, an excellent bookshop, at the above malls and also at Seacliff Village and the Steers complex.

But for authentic Tanzanian souvenirs, visit Tingatinga Centre on Haile Selassie Road in Oyster Bay where you will see artists at work.

A ‘best buy’ is the beautiful gemstone Tanzanite, the darker the blue the higher the quality – and the price. These rare and unique stones are graded from AAA down to B. As there are many fakes on the market, buy either jewellery or stones from reputable dealers like Gem Point, Royal Jewellers and Queens Jewellers on Indira Gandhi Street in the CBD or Lothys at the 5-star sea-facing Kilimanjaro Hotel Kempinski , Kivukoni Street, and Tanzanite Dream, 778 Mataka Road, Upanga West.

Makonde wooden carvings are a Tanzanian speciality and are found at Mwenge Crafts Market.

What NOT to buy

Seashells and dried sea horses.
