Our guests often need to spend a night or two in Dar es Salaam. This can be because the airline schedules often require you to spend a night in Dar. Or perhaps you are planning a visit to Mikumi National Park and need to spend a night or two in Dar es Salaam to be able to do this. In any case, regular hotel rooms are available in Dar es Salaam and typically range from about US$100 per night to over US$250 per night. Some of the hotels that are available are the Holiday Inn, New Africa Hotel, and the White Sands. Many of our guests would like less expensive accomodations in Dar. We usually book our mission volunteers into the Free Pentacostal Church of Tanzania (FPCT) guest facility in Dar es Salaam. Located in the Kurasini Beach area, it is not too far from the Dar es Salaam International Airport. John Francis (taxi driver) knows well how to get there. We will handle bookings for Joy in the Harvest guests ONLY. We have received many requests about information concerning bookings for FPCT from other people. We are sorry but we cannot provide assistance to others. Please DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT FPCT IF YOU ARE NOT AN INVITED GUEST OF JOY IN THE HARVEST. You will need to contact them directly. The cost is US$15. per person per night. When appropriate, you will be sharing a room with others in your group. The rooms are basic but nice. They are air conditioned and have an private bathroom. A simple breakfast of toast and hard boiled eggs is included in the price and is self-service in a nice dining area. There is a shared kitchen facility that is available for guests to use. This is nice if you are spending more than one day. For a few minutes per day they run a very small shop that carries a few basic supplies. They can store luggage (if you go to Zanzibar or Mikumi) for US$1. per piece. Nehema is one of the people who runs the guest facility. We will make your bookings for you if you would like to stay there, but only if you are a Joy in the Harvest guest. You will pay your bill upon arrival unless you arrive late, then you pay in the morning.
