Dar es Salaam police head Mambosasa urged citizens to notify authorities if they caught wind of such activities "so we can act in time".
Police made 20 arrests — eight men and 12 women — on similar grounds on Tanzania's semi-autonomous archipelago Zanzibar last month.
The Dar es Salaam government also vowed to deport foreigners campaigning for gay rights.
