I am flying to dar es salaam next onto staying there for the night near ubungo bus terminal and then planning on getting a bus from there to mikumi national park. I am just looking for some information and tips basically on the safety of doing this, the price of the bus journey, where to get Tanzanian currency from, what bus operator to use etc.
it is just myself and another young English female travelling. I have heard it's best to buy a ticket the day before? And that scandanavia express buses are best, we don't mind paying a bit more for a comfortable journey as I've heard it's around 5 hours?
Any advice would be appreciated!
Not long until we go now and we're getting nervous, thanks!
