New Year

New Year’s Day 1st January

New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

In Tanzania, you will find the more usual New Year’s Eve and Day traditions like midnight toasts and fireworks and the making of resolutions. Some people like to be amongst the crowds at public events, while others prefer to be at home with a few family or friends.

Locals of Zanzibar may soak up the sun and relax on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. While residents and tourists in Dar es Salaam and Stone Town may shop, eat out and see the urban sites.
