Auric Air operates flights to Dar es Salaam from Iringa‚ Mafia Island‚ Morogoro‚ Pemba‚ Ruaha National Park‚ Songea‚ Serengeti‚ Zanzibar and Arusha.
Dar es Salaam‚ or "House of Peace"‚ formerly Mzizima‚ is the largest city in Tanzania. It is situated on a large sea inlet and is the only deep-sea harbour between Mombasa‚ Kenya in the north and Beira‚ Mozambique‚ far off in the south. The city remains true to the old cliche‚ being a "melting pot" a vibrant blend of traditional tribal cultures and immigrant communities from Europe and Asia.
For the traveller‚ the city boasts all the modern amenities you can think of. It is also home to a modest collection of museums and cultural attractions‚ as well as being a mecca for lovers of East African music. Once the capital‚ now Dodoma‚ Dar es Salaam remains Tanzania's industrial and commercial heart.
German‚ British‚ Asian‚ and Arab influence is evident‚ but it is fundamentally a Swahili city. In the last decade‚ many mosques‚ churches‚ and old government buildings have been restored‚ making them interesting to visitors as well as business people.
