Mlimani City Mall
Sam Nujoma Rd.
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

According to the plaque at its main entrance, Dar es Salaam’s Mlimani City Mall turned 3 years old last Saturday.

Happy Belated Birthday, Mlimani City—this one is for you!

About Mlimani City Mall

Mlimani City was Dar es Salaam‘s first real mall.

Housed all on one floor, Mlimani City Mall is smaller than many other malls found in neighboring countries, such as The Village Market in Kenya or Garden City in Uganda, but still, this mall packs a punch!

Let me give you an idea of what you can find at Mlimani City.

Exim Bank Mlimani City
Exim Bank, Mlimani City

First, I’ll start with banks.

Banks at Mlimani City Mall

Although it’s not the most noticeable thing about Mlimani City, the mall houses not one, not two, but 6 banks: CRDB, Exim Bank, KCB, NBC, NMB, and Twiga Bancorp.

If you bank in Tanzania, then there is a great chance that your bank has a branch at Mlimani City.

Beyond banks (which I listed first because a number of them straddle the main entrance to the mall), Mlimani City is built around three southern African retail chain megastores: Choppies, Game, and Mr Price.

As you would expect, Mlimani City also has smaller stores.

Among these are many electronics stores (BMTL, Fone Shack, Hitachi, Phone One Limited, and Samsung), eateries (Chicken Hut Restaurant, Coffee Bar, Delightful Bakes Cafe & Restaurant, Fairy Delights Ltd., The Juice Parlour, Marrybrown, Samaki-Samaki, Silver Spoon Fast Food, etc.), and telecom companies (Tigo, Vodacom, and Airtel).

Oh, and of course, let’s not forget clothing stores.

Mlimani City has its share of those too.

Clothing Stores at Mlimani City Mall

Among them are AK’s, Giordano, Holliewood Fashions, Identity, Modern Day Boutique, Mummy’s, and Tausi Fashions.

All these sell apparel not only for ladies and gents but also for infants.

One of my favorite reasons to visit Mlimani City Mall is to buy cosmetics and toiletries.

For this, I always head first to Shear Illusions (Now that there is an S.H. Amon in the new wing of Mlimani City, I head there first and since there is also a M.A.C store at Mlimani City now…).

If I don’t find what I am looking for there, then I make sure to visit J.D. Pharmacy and Lolita Parfyumerie too, both of which also stock a broad range of similar products.

Home Furnishing Stores at Mlimani City

If you are interested in home and interiors, then Mlimani City has something for you too.

For this, check out stores such as Frame World, Gerry Super Furniture, Interior Solutions, and Mr Price.

And yet, Mlimani City offers even more than I’ve mentioned so far.

While you are visiting this mall, you can also process and print your photos at Photo Point, buy shoes at Footprint, or buy jewelry at Yakub Jewellers.

If travel is what’s on your mind, then you can buy luggage at Samsonite, change money at Coast Bureau de Change One, or book a trip with Alesy Travel & Tours Ltd.

For book lovers like me, a stop at Scholastic book store is a must!

If your clothes need laundering, then Alpha Dry Cleaners will be able to handle that for you.

If you are in the mood to buy African artifacts, then search no further than African Art.

And if at the end of it all something you purchased at the mall is very valuable to you, then maybe you might want to stop over at Real Insurance and check out insurance policies.

Mlimani City Cinema

At the end of the day, when you’re finally done with all the errands that brought you to Mlimani City Mall, take the opportunity to relax and unwind with a movie at Century Cinemax’s Mlimani City cinema.

What can I say?

I told you Mlimani City packs a real punch.

So once more, from me to you, Mlimani City, Happy belated birthday!

Until the next time,

Welcome to ChickAboutTown! I look forward to seeing more of you in the comment section of this blog.

Happy Holidays,

Hi Indra,

Welcome to ChickAboutTown! I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond to your comment. Alas, I don’t have an email address for the Game Store in Dar es Salaam. I hope you managed to find it nonetheless.


nice one, i left home just before it opened and am going back in a few days for a whole month…thanx for the tip i’ll be sure to visit, if only to catch a movie ; )

Hi, congratulations for a great article, it is short but it contains a comprehensive information that one who plans to make visit there will find it very useful and helpful. however i have a question, are there any data from a credible source that estimates how many people visits Mlimani City per day/ week/ month etc? if there are no such data, can YOU estimate the number of people that visit the mall in any period??
thanx in advance.

Hi Godwin,

Welcome to ChickAboutTown! Thank you for your kudos on the article. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any credible sources that estimate how many people visit Mlimani City for the time periods you specify. Maybe you could call the mall’s management office? They might have those figures.

Sorry for taking so long to respond to your comment. I was on a blogging hiatus.
