Moving to Dar for about 18 months-need some advice

Hi Readers,

I will be moving to Dar Es Salaam next Easter with partner (Both from the West Midlands) who has work with an International company. I will be giving up my job to accompany him. I have many many questions and can describe my self as excited and scared in equal amounts.

What are the safest areas to live in?

Is it so unsafe that having a security guard a necessity? If so how do people cope with this?

Can a western woman, go out shopping on her own?

Safety seems to be such a huge aspect- is it so dangerous that you are always fearful? I think that must have a long term effect on your nerves.Some more information would be really helpful .

Thank you
