    Safety at Home, on Foot, in a Car


    August 29, 2012

    Due to the recent home invasions on a Msasani Peninsula expatriate compound in Dar es Salaam, the U.S. Embassy would like to remind you that crime in Tanzania is increasing. Criminal activity can take place anywhere during the day or the night. We recommend taking the following measures to improve your personal security.

    Below are some security reminders for residences, vehicles, and pedestrians.

    Residential Security:

    • Lock all doors and security grills -- especially at night.
    • Ensure windows and fire escape grills are secured.
    • Keep your mobile phone charged and close to you at all times.

    Pedestrians, Joggers, Cyclists:

    • Avoid carrying backpacks and purses.
    • If you exercise on the street, select routes where you can run, walk, or bike on the shoulder and face oncoming traffic, if it is safe to do so.
    • Don't wear headphones.
    • Exercise with a buddy.
    • Avoid exercising after dark.
    • Wear bright reflective clothing.
    • Don't carry a wallet, flashy watch, jewelry, or iPods.
    • Just carry a concealed cell phone and a minimum amount of cash (not ATM, credit, or debit cards).

    • In Dar es Salaam, AVOID WALKING/BIKING near Touré Drive, Coco Beach, Ubungo bus station, the South Beach ferry area, or any place where there aren't houses on both sides of the road. Assailants may hide in brush-covered areas or in crowds. If you go to the South Beach ferry or the Ubungo bus station, arrive and depart in a secured vehicle.

    Vehicles:


    • Lock your doors and close your windows.
    • Set the alarm (if available) when you park.
    • Secure bags in the trunk or leave them at home.
    • Don't take public transportation such as bajajs and daladalas, or hail unknown taxis on the street. Use a car service or have a hotel or restaurant hire a cab for you.
    • When you drive at night in Dar, be especially cautious when stopped at traffic lights. In order to avoid assault at isolated intersections, some drivers do not stop at lights, but proceed after slowing down. This means that intersections are really dangerous at night, whether you have the right of way or not.
    • When driving in traffic, leave adequate space between your car and the vehicle ahead to permit you to maneuver out of danger.

    The U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam encourages U.S. citizens to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program ( <https://step.state.gov/step/> STEP) for the most up-to-date safety and security information. Keep all of your information in STEP up-to-date by maintaining your current phone numbers and email addresses where you can be reached in case of an emergency.

    polisi sasa sio tena wakulinda raia na zao, ila sasa wameongezewa vifaa zaidi na kuvutishwa bangi nyingi na pombe kuhakikisha inakabiliana na chadema kikamilifu, aibu tupu

    taarifa ya U.S embassy ni kwa raia wake,,,so kwa sasa raia wa u.s anaweza kuelewa matukio yanayoendelea tanzania kwa taarifa ambazo anazisoma kwenye mtandao wa ubaloz wa u.s dar es salaam,sasa huyo mdau anaweza kuijua au kuielezea NYC kwa kutumia mitandao,
    kuna maeneo yametajwa kuwa ni hatar kama vile Harlem na bronx,,,,,ila sosi ni mtandao
