I am going to Tanzania in 2012. I want to be able to enjoy the sights and the food, but I also want to be able to work during the day on some projects for my clients. Where is the best place in Tanzania to be able to do this? I am thinking of four day weekends, over the course of three weeks spent there.
Trip Plan Details
recommended Stone TownThe narrow, back alleyways of Stone Town of Zanzibar are filled with glimpses into the time of the Sultan, of his harem and of the dhows that still sail nearby, shadows casting themselves permanently ... read moreonto the local psyche. If that's not enough for ya, then take into account that Sir Freddy Mercury (of Queen fame) was born here and thus a pilgrimage to Stone Town is absolutely essential for die hard Queen fans (kick back a couple of cold ones at Freddy's for the full effect)..Comment.over 2 years ago.

You should be able to balance work and pleasure here quite well, Doug. Just don't go on any TinTin inspired adventures!

Dar is a good base if you're interested in seeing a variety of Tanzanian locations. With the new fast ferry, Zanzibar is only an hour and a half boat ride away. Both the northern and southern safari circuits are either a day's drive or an hour's flight from the city (in opposite directions, of course). Dar isn't my favorite city in the world but if you're going to need reliable access to internet, etc and access to Tanzania's highlights then it's a sensible choice.
