I needed to stay over in Dar es Salaam to make connections to Mafia. I have been unable to get in touch with the B&B to see if they will arrange pickup (a service listed on their website). I have printed a map of the simple route from DAR. How safe is it for a single, older female traveler to just take a taxi?
Well, I'm back, safely, but it was a bit of an experience! I finally took one of the uniformed taxis at the airport, but was charged a small fortune. The room I had booked through Booking.com was NOT located where indicated on that site, and I asked the driver for a hotel closer to the airport. A nice place, as it turned out, and reasonable. I don't know what to recommend re taxi prices; I wasn't brave enough to negotiate. Just be prepared for that, I guess... 3 months ago
