Is it possible to take morning ferry to Dar and make 4:00pm flight?
So long as you take the fast ferry, yes. The first ferry arrives from Zanzibar at 9 and it’s anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half to the ferry terminal to the airport.
Yes, and you can take the second ferry at 9:00AM and get in Dar es salaam at 11:00AM and at this time usually it is mid day and no traffic so you can go to the Airport and spend few hours walking the city and take TAXI or UBER from City Center at 12:00PM and be at the Airport at 13:00PM and fly home.
Like Achnab suggests, I would fly to DAR from ZNZ. Much less hassle than accessing ferries and humping luggage around Taxis and everything else.
Taxi from lodge to Airport. check in, 20 minute hop and arrive DAR. simples!
Hi! Sorry to take advantage of this forum, but since you seem to live in Dar... do you by any chance know if there is heavy traffic from the airport to the ferry terminal on a Monday at 2 PM?
I will be arriving around 1:30 PM and hope to take the 4 PM ferry to Zanzibar. I would only be taking carry-on luggage.
Thanks in advance!!
I don't think you have a margin for error.
It can take 90 minutes from the Airport to the Ferry. Add into that Immigration, if not on a Domestic flight and I doubt you are or you would fly to ZNZ anyway, that can take an hour and an arrival at 13.30 indicates a missed boat.
Surely it makes sense if at an airport to use the airport for your onward trip?
