Hi Andrea,

We’re looking at accommodating over 800 people in Dar. We have booked out the Peacock hotel and that has 80 rooms, the Ramada has 120, etc! 

Unfortunately there are no “mega” hotels in Dar es Salaam so we won’t all be in the same hotel - but we will be in the same area. 

We’ll publish the guidance for hotels for those booking separately within the hour too! However, I stress to all, that you can add a hotel later in your booking, or an experience, or a spousal room etc. So, nothing should stop you getting your tickets!!
