Tanzania has an 840 km coastline of tropical palm fringed beaches, underwater coral gardens and unlimited potential for deep sea diving, snorkeling and big game fishing to name a few. It is also a historical coast with a mixture of African and Arab cultures and remnants of the slave, gold and ivory trade of the past.

Its beauty and rich past are undeniable and are evident in the crumbling mosques hidden among palm trees along the mainland coast and islands, and in the heavy wooden doors and brass chests which were once used in trade.

Dar es Salaam, which translates as ‘Haven of Peace’ consists of beautiful sandy beaches and the art and culture of the Swahili people. It also assists with easy access to the ancient slave port in Bagamoyo and the natural beauty of nearby islands including Zanzibar and Pemba making the coastal circuit a very popular venue for holiday makers.
