When visiting the Dar Es Salaam Botanical Garden, expect to see many native and exotic plants with some rare findings like the coco-de-mer palm tree - a native of Seychelles. Other plants include scarlet flame trees, several species of palm, cycads, purple bougainvillea, blue jacaranda, and red hibiscus.
The best time to visit the Dar Es Salaam Botanical Garden is during the dry season from late June to October. After the rainy season, flora and fauna at the garden are in full bloom and ready for viewing. Plus, you won't have to get wet while enjoying the sights.
