thanks a lot for your precious informations

we are two and we will travel in Tanzania without a touring operator, that's why we are looking for the maximum informations. we will stay some days at Zanzibar before going to Mombasa and stay at Dar es salaam just one night ( to take the bus, the day after).

do you know if i have to buy the ticket bus a day before? the Ubongo terminal is it the buses terminal at dar es salaam?

thanks a lot

If you purchase the ticket the day before leaving then you are assured of a seat on the bus. The night before you might want to stay at the Rombo Green View hotel, which is very close to the Ubungo bus terminal, and have the taxi driver stop at the Ubunbo Bus terminal when he takes you to the hotel, then you will be for certain to know what time you will be traveling and when you need to be at the bus the next morning. The Rombo Green View hotel is about 5 minutes by taxi from the bus terminal. The kiosks in from of the bus terminal are where they sell the tickets. The next morning have the taxi driver take you all the way to your bus, this will ensure that you miss all the many touts waiting at the bus terminal.

I don't know the exact fare but it will be around $40. It is a long ride from Nairobi to Dar, probably about 12 hours, make certain that you go very early in the morning.
