Nairobi to Tanzania

I am looking at various alternatives to get from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Does Kenya have a reliable coach service travelling this route or alternatively a train service. It would have to be safe because we are two families with six kids all under the age of 13. Travel dates around 30 june2007.

Please advise to possible options. Thank you.

Well it is actually very simple to travel by busses from Nairobi to Dar though it requires an overnight in Arusha. www.riverside-shuttle.com will take you to Arusha. www.scandinaviagroup.com/Scandinavia%20

Express/scandinavia_express_routemap_tanzania_dararusha.html will take you to Dar the next day. I've taken the Riverside shuttle often and it is indeed safe, and can be fun. I have NO experience with Scandanavia Express, so let's hear from others about them.

PS - note you could go all the way from Nairobi to Moshi, and that might be OK, since you would overnight in a smaller town and not have the earlier morning departure. On the other hand, Arusha is a colorful place and by starting to Dar from there, you have a better chance of sitting in seats you like. I like your sense of adventure.

thanks for the info Dave. Much appreciated. Was wondering if you could recommend an itinery for a few days to see the crater, kilimanjaro ... then move on to dar then to zanzibar. Do you know of good / but relatively inexpensive places to stay /camp for this kind of tour. Has to be safe though... 4 adults 6 children... thanks for your input.
