There is a previous post on this board which describes a house in Dar which can be rented on a long term basis. They give a web site that you can visit.

Are you looking for a house, apartment, or hotel?

Try going to www.sublet.com/area_rentals/ Africa/DarEsSalaam_Rentals.asp

They have a couple of apartments for rent in Dar. You can also try the web site www.proteahotels.com/ and see if they have anything. Another thing you might check is the hotels there (do a google search and you'll find plenty). Most any of them will give you a monthly rate. The New Africa Hotel is located in the city center and they have a rate of $100 a night, but you can probably deal for a monthly rate. They have several restaurants, a casino, and a pool.

There are many prices, according to where the apartment is located, what is included, etc. I would suggest that you look on the internet sites, some tell their prices, and if you contact the person listing an apartment he'll tell you the price. I've seen apartments all the way from $100 a month to $1,200 a month.

I'm certain that you can get something for that amount, but you'll need to go to the Internet and search them out.

I used to live in dar. I know of a beautiful house on the seaside with a large garden which I beleive is currently available for renting out. the only downside is that it is about 50 mins drive from central dar, but really tranquil. price approx. $800 per month.
