Welcome Pickups proudly announces its second destination in Tanzania with its latest launch in Dar es Salaam.
April 21, 2023, Athens – Following the recent launch of its 1st destination in Tanzania, Zanzibar, Welcome Pickups kicks off operations in Dar es Salaam. Travellers can now enjoy Welcome’s 5-star services in the largest and busiest city in Tanzania. Julius Nyerere International Airport is located approximately 12 kilometres from the city centre and is among the largest airports in East Africa. Acting as a gateway to Tanzania’s well-known attractions, vast national parks and countless islands, Dar es Salaam’s airport welcomed over 1,454,920 tourists in 2022 alone. Not only has its tourism sector seen a speedy post-Covid recovery, but it was also voted ‘Africa’s Leading Destination’ in 2021. Moreover, the Tanzania National Business Council predicted that tourism will make up 19.5% of the country’s GDP by 2025, reinforcing the notion that the growth of its tourism industry is showing no signs of slowing down.
Home to African Tanzanians, South Asian and Arabic communities, Dar es Salaam is an incredibly culturally diverse city. From its music to its cuisine to its fascinating history, visitors will delight in this colourful and eclectic environment. Furthermore, the sheer variety of international cuisine on offer, ranging from Tanzanian barbecue to Thai and American food, will have travellers avidly restaurant-hopping. After savouring local flavours, they might choose to stroll through Kariakoo Market to browse through authentic Tanzanian products or check out the spectacular harbour. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, numerous breathtaking natural attractions wait to be discovered, all thanks to the country allocating more than 25% of its land to wildlife national parks. Nature lovers can explore the stunning national parks on safari or seek out the palm-lined beaches of Kunduchi and Mjimwena to experience a slice of paradise. With so much to see, it’s no wonder this destination’s popularity is growing.
With 50+ travel partners being added to Welcome’s portfolio every month, the company is now looking for travel partners in and around Tanzania to support its expansion plans in Africa. Partnering with Welcome Pickups is an excellent way for hotels, affiliates, vacation rental managers and travel agencies to offer valuable customer experiences and simultaneously increase their revenue.
