The "House Of Peace", formerly known as Mzizima, offers an exciting intercultural experience for expats, starting with cultural highlights, like the Makumbusho Village Museum, which showcases several ethnic groups from Tanzania,, the folkloristic festivities on the occasion of Tanzania’s Zanzibar Revolution Day, up to getting a taste of traditional ugali. The InterNations community helps you as an Dar es Salaam expat to enjoy your expat stay in Tanzania to the fullest. Our members have already come across many of the questions you’ll have when starting your expatriate life in Dar es Salaam and kindly offer you their assistance, from ʺHow many months of rent does a landlord in Dar' usually demand in advance?ʺ up to ʺShould I register with my native country's embassy upon arrival?ʺ.
