Tanzania Nightlife

  • Good beers in Tanzania

    There are good beers in Tanzania, but it seam to give you more hangover than imported beer. Some locals like to drink the beer warm. So be clear when you order a beer. Just say "baridi" if you like the beer cold, or "moto" if you like the beer warm.Here are some of the beers...KilimanjaroSerengetiSafariPrisna Ice

  • The town of Arusha.

    I stayed in Novotel Mount Meru, which is quite good, nice people, good food.In Arusha itself there are several possibilities to hang out. Bars, clubs and restaurants. Let people advise you before going on an expedition on your own. This can end up frustrating.Room rates go from $ 100 to $ 155.

  • Mwera Nightclub

    If you want a truly African experience regarding night life, try this disco. It's as one would expect, basic, dark and the tape deck is even cooled by a fan propped over it to prevent it over heating. Resourceful people yes! Nothing stops them from enjoying life and unlike us very spoiled people from the rich western world, throwing away the deck...

  • The sky at night

    One of my favourite night time escapades (while still keeping it clean and in accordance with a family site!), is to watch the sky at night. The first time I was in Sub-Saharan Africa, I found the sky so absolutely amazing, I’d never seen the sky look so huge. With no light pollution around, the sky seems to reach all the way down to the horizon,...

  • Baiting

    You may also find that lodges will encourage night time visitors, by baiting them. I have seen this on a few occasions, with a leg of lamb being hung from a tree to attract leopards, breadcrumbs being placed on tables on the roof top terrace to entice bush babies and such like, or bananas smeared on tree trunks. I have seen people feed monkeys...

  • Night time visitors

    Many camps and lodge grounds have night time visitors to look out for. On my first camping safari a few years ago, I was woken in the night by the guy in the next tent going to the loo. He seemed to make such a lot of noise back in the tent, rustling with plastic bags and shuffling about, I was secretly cursing him. This time I didn’t shout though,...

  • Nightlife?

    Nightlife on safari is almost non-existent. You will probably find yourself going to bed at a time you may not have seen since your pre-teen days. We found that most evenings we were tucked up inside our sleeping bag by nine pm, as were everyone else in the camp. Out of courtesy to other guests, it is polite to keep any noise down after this time....

  • Flootlit game viewing

    Some lodges have waterholes which may be floodlit at night. This is a good time to observe animals, as many animals are more active during the hours of darkness, at least initially. I have spent many an hour just gazing out at the waterhole, watching the comings and goings of the animal kingdom. Some lodges may offer a ‘wake-up’ service where you...

  • Night safari

    Some lodges can arrange a night safari. We have done this a couple of times, and it is a completely different perspective to the day time game drives. Of course you don’t see as much as you would during the day, but I do think it is worth doing at least once, just for the experience. On one such drive, we found our vehicle surrounded by a huge herd...

  • Sounds of the night

    The very best nightlife was sitting around listening to the sound of the African night, drinking a glass of wine, and relaxing after a day of wildlife viewing. Who needs artifical entertainment? Everything covered to keep the mosquitos and tse tse flies away. Wear lots of DEET.

  • The only nightlife in our area...

    The only nightlife in our area was one HUGE spider running along somewhere outside! Well, I nearly went crazy at the size of this thing....knowing that the territory it was in was somewhere between our bedroom and the outside toilets (where we would need to be visiting during the course of the night!)

  • A great night spot is the food...

    A great night spot is the food market in the 'Stone Town' of Zanzibar just by the water front. Dozens of stools where you can get sea food, Indian food, sugar cane juice, local traditional food and more. Many locals come here to enjoy the breeze and chat with friends.From here ypu can watch some of the most beautiful sun sets in Africa while the...

  • The New Silent Inn in Dar es...

    The New Silent Inn in Dar es Salaam. A hell of a good time.An honest to god Swahili disco, playing Zairian kwasa kwasa music, with a low cover and cheap beers. You'll likely be the only wazungu in the joint. Dress sharp, the guys are typically in well-pressed Kaunda suits, the women in full kitenge dresses with matching head wraps.

  • Nungwi (Northern tip of Unguja...

    Nungwi (Northern tip of Unguja Island) is a paradise and a welcome relief after a trip in the mainland: fine sandy beaches, some nice local guest houses, small excellent restaurants along the beach, friendly atmosphere, nice music … but, BUT after 10 pm the “disco music” starts. Terrible!! And it lasts until 1, 2 am. If you like it, go and dance....

  • There is not a large choice...

    There is not a large choice for nightlife in Tanzania, for nightlife in Dar es Salaam go and see my Dar es Salaam page. The most popular disco in Moshi is Alberto's, its open till 6 O'clock in the morning. there is none.

  • Cholos, Nungwi - Zanzibar

    This bar is the only place to be late at night at Nungwi. It's located AT the beach, and everything there is made in pact with nature. You really get the exotic feeling when you're relaxing in the hammock, sitting around the bonfire, playing with the sweet bar-monkey, chilling with a drink in the wood-sofa, or talking with the locals over a...
