Public holiday - Industry's day 7l.th of July 2008

Heard that Tanzania has a Public Holiday/ Industry's day at monday 7.th of July 2008. Do you know if public transport as bus and flight are running as normal this day, or is everything closed down?

Thinking about transport to Arusha from Dar.

The 7th of July is Saba Saba (for 07 / 07) day in Tanzania. Banks and government ministry offices will be closed, but most businesses such as restaurants and bureau de change will be open. There will be a very big trade show in Dar es Salaam at the Saba Saba grounds and many people will be attending this (if you have time you might want to go there, it's interesting). This trade show is probably the largest event in Dar during the year and many people come to Dar to see this, so things for the tourist industry are open and thriving.

As for bus and air transportation to Arusha on that day, you will be able to get it with no difficulty at all, and the taxis will be operating also.
