Is it possible to buy camera equipment on Tansania?

Hi everybody,

does anyone know if there's a camera shop in DAR, Arusha or Mwanza? I am looking for a polarisation filter for my DSLR.

Thanks a million for your replies.

Myrna

Arusha is somewhat limited and very expensive...for there. Lens tissues were $25 for a questionable package.

I expect better chance if you are in Dar as much bigger city. Not Mwanza. Benson is where I looked for the lens papers, and it is 'limited' to say the least.
