Family moving to Dar with a 2 yr old and 5 yr old (Dar es Salaam)

Hi. My husband has been offered a position with a company in Dar. We are considering relocating later this year. Please can someone help me with the following:

Rental of an apartment/house in the Oyster Bay Area. In SA we have rental agents who can assist with this. Does it work the same in Dar? If so, can anyone suggest an Agent. Also wondering what the cost of housing is in this specific area?

I read on the site about the Haven of Peace Academy. How far away is it from Oyster Bay? Are there any similar schools in the area? Any suggestions of play schools for my 2 year old? She loves her school in SA, so I am so hoping we will be able to find a nice place for her!

We are also looking to join a Church, can anyone make any recommendations.

We are arriving in Dar on the 10th Sep for a week to get a feel for the place. Sorry to be missing the meeting on the 9th. Would have been lovely to meet everyone.
