The Waterfront, Dar-es-salaam – Part II

NIMU ISABEL PHOTOGRAPHY

Part II of exploring Dar-es-salaam was at The Waterfront, near Hotel Slipway. Dar-es-Salaam happens to be one of the few towns in Africa that borders the Indian Ocean.

The place is open to the public at no cost whatsoever. It is an ideal place to just hang out with friends as you enjoy the cool breeze from the ocean.

In addition, it has a great view of the city as well.

The place also serves as a harbour for both private and public boats.

Fishing also takes place here, from fish to crabs to squids to mention but a few. Occasionally, if you are lucky enough, you’ll witness birds feeding on these creatures from time to time, as is the cycle of life.
