Founded in the mid-19th century, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's largest city, lost the status of the official capital but remains the country's commercial and financial center.
Step out of Dar es Salaam to go to Bagamoyo and see Old Boma, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. And it doesn't end there: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, walk around Jakaya M Kikwete Youth Park, stroll the grounds of Dar Es Salaam War Cemetery, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Upanga Jamatkhana.

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.

There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, look for all kinds of wild species at Platteklip Gorge, take in nature's colorful creations at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Signal Hill.
