A number of international airlines fly directly to Dar Es Salaam. Within Tanzania there are a small number of domestic carriers that fly in to Dar Es Salaam from a number of cities in the country. There are also a number of bus services connecting major cities. The airport and the main bus stand are both approximately 10 kilometres out of the city centre. This journey can take up to 3 hours depending on the time of day. Traffic in Dar Es Salaam can be extremely congested and delegates are advised to book accommodation as close as possible to the conference venue.
