Taxi at 3:00am

What's it like to take a taxi at 3:00am in Dar es Salaam? Is it safe? Our flight is just after 5:00am. Or does anyone know of a hotel with 24 hr airport transfers?

I have arrived to Dar at 3 am , and airport was live, taxi drivers were waiting for people in front arrivals hall. I felt safe, but have asked at my hotel to send me Taxi. Where are you staying, i was in Transit Motel Ukonga that is like 10 min from airport - cost was 10 usd.

Any hotel will get you a taxi at 3am. There is hardly any traffic at that time of the morning, it's as safe as any time.

Some hotels have airport shuttles, ask whatever hotel you are staying at for this.

For the closest hotel that would be the Transit Motel and they have a shuttle to the airport, which is only a few blocks away.
