Dar es Salaam has a reasonable spread of accommodation, although quality midrange hotels are like gold dust. Dozens of budget hotels and hostels cluster downtown. They offer no-frills rooms with air-con. At the top end hotels are aimed at business travellers or tourists returning from luxury safaris. Here you're looking at US$200-plus for a room with all the comforts of home. The closest places for camping are at Mikadi and Mjimwema on the southern side of the Kurasini Creek.
