Hi there,

Most hotels have special dinners and fireworks during midnight. Some are followed by all night dancing and local entertainment programs by Tanzanian groups.

Apart from these, there isnt much else to look forward to for the New Year's Eve. Obviously the beach, the sun and the town are a league of their own.

All the best,

I do agree with above.

Mostly is Local dances in most of Restaurants around Stonetown.

Also some local dance performances inside Old Fort.

The Huge and famous one is at Kendwa Rocks New Years party.
