Hi there,
You can store your car in Dar Es Salaam at FPCT Center : Free Pentecoast Church of Tanzania
We have stored our 2 4x4 from last June 2012 till October 2012
It is not as good as Jungle Junction because it is not really for overlanders and for camping, it is a guesthouse where people linked to Pentecostal Church come (no alcool, no cigarets,...), but you can have rooms and meals It is clean and staff is helpful. In particular Charles Nkwabi, the assistant manager
You can email them at this address : fpctcentre@yahoo.com
We paid 50 USD per month. It's a covered parking with fences but not a lot of places. They start the car, once per week.
The whole place is protected by a big wall because they store aswell trucks and containers

Did you find storage?

Gday, not sure if you have found a solution yet but I live permanently in Arusha & would be happy to store your vehicle for you. We are building a house so will be around for a while. Not too convenient for Dar but there are now cheap flights to Dar via fastjet (<$100) & its only 5 hrs to Nairobi & there is a bus shuttle for $25 straight to the airport. Also flights out of Nairobi are much cheaper than Dar.

Anyway feel free to give me a shout.
