When To Visit Dar es Salaam:

Hotel Slipway is an affordable property located on the waterfront. It is a great option for people who are on a budget, looking to spend a night before starting their safari.


The hotel is located at The Slipway - Dar es Salaam’s premier shopping and leisure centre. The Slipway began life as a boatyard but has recently been developed into a complex with a number of shops and a range of dining experiences including Italian, seafood and sushi restaurants.


 Located just 7km from Dar es Salaam city centre on the Msasani peninsula, overlooking the Indian Ocean, and approximately 40 minutes from Dar es Salaam’s airport.


At Hotel Slipway guests can take advantage of the simple but fully equipped guest rooms, which benefit from air conditioning, before starting their safari. A more comfortable option in Dar es Salaam is the Serena Hotel.


  • At the hotel, guests can go swimming, try out the facilities at the onsite gym or venture into the spa for a beauty treatment.
  • Beyond the hotel, there is scuba diving, boat trips to Bongoyo Island and city sighting on offer. 
"An old classic and the most affordable, albeit simple, accommodation we use in Dar. Considering you can pay a fortune for average accommodation in Dar, I find you can't go wrong with the Slipway...especially due to its surrounding bars and restaurants."
