Getting around in Tanga Region
You can take local buses to get around in Tanga region. You can also hire cars with or without drivers. TICC can assist you.
The main roads are good, but many rural roads are in bad shape – especially during and after the rainy season.
In Tanga City we have local “dala dala” (minibuses), they cover the whole of Tanga City. Daladala’s are cheap and it is a special experience to travel in an overcrowded daladala. That is truely Africa. Try it. (Tsh 400)
The Main Tanga Bus Station for Daladala is located in Ngamiani Area.This is a risky area, so make sure you have all your valuables in safe places. It is crowded and can frighten travelers who are not used to local bus stands. The Tanga region Tourist Association (TATONA) is working on the safety issue in close collaboration with the local police.
Both in Tanga and in Lushoto you can hire bicycles. You will have to ask the different Tourist Information offices, or at the TATONA Office in Tanga for more information.
