Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Not if I had a better option. - Jan 2022


Yes, its been fun. - Oct 2021


Yes! Dar is Africa-lite, you can live a very comfortable expat life here. - May 2020


It would depend on my other options. If the other options were in Africa, then yes, this is better than most. If you have the option to be off the continent, then I would likely take it (with obvious exceptions...looking at you Bangladesh!). We made some great friends and saw a few things once can only see in Africa, but I don't see us coming back to AF. - Jun 2017

Not sure. - Jul 2015

Yes, but I'd be better prepared. It is VERY frustrating to first get settled in. There are a lot of challenges but once you get the system down and learn to live with the quirks, all is good. - Feb 2013


Yes, generally a good post. Definitely some frustration, but a good experience. The key is getting out of the city and finding activities on weekends. - Feb 2013


In a heartbeat! - Aug 2011
