Increasingly, people are looking for ‘experiential’ travel and seek to achieve this by staying in less ‘touristy’ neighborhoods, choosing to eat and drink away from the beaten track, and interact with locals in an attempt to uncover more hidden gems and we are trying to offer just that.

Interaction with Guests. As much as you like we speak fluent Kiswahili too if they wish to learn, also speak some German being of mixed race German/Tanzanian.

Very easy to mix with the locals.

The House of Changes is a simple Swahili House located in a quite sleepy Swahili neighborhood of Magomeni Mikumi, close to the city center and just 3km out of town on the main Morogoro Road.

We are close to the airport, the Ubungo Regional Bus Terminal, Tazara and Central Line Railway Stations and the Seaport and harbor where speed boats depart to Zanzibar and Pemba Islands.

Magomeni Mikumi is Friendly, Safe and Secure.

Locals play bao and cards on the road sides drinking coffee. Mishkaki (meat skewers) and Nyama Choma (BBQ) and fried bananas in the streets, goes down well in the local bars and even pork joints are available in this mixed multicultural cosmopolitan local part of Dar es Salaam.

Famous Taarab venues are numerous in this Swahili neighborhood.
