Jangwani Sea Breeze Resort- Explore the beauty of Dar es Salaam's coastline

'Karibu' for welcome. One of the most commonly words in Swahili.
The word Africa to most who have never visited this beautiful continent conjures a host of images in the mind- from the arid deserts to the vast plains teeming with wildlife. But what most don't know is that the cities of Africa teem with night life and its coasts are the spectacular by any standards that host many pristine beaches and corals.

Dar es Salaam is one such city whose coastline has some exotic beaches aptly supported by some very nice beach resorts. I had a chance to visit Jangwani Sea Breeze Resort earlier this month (Nov. 2015) and was impressed by its location as well as its hospitality. The resort, located to the north of Dar, is about 30 minutes drive (50 minutes during peak hours).

The resort has two clearly demarcated sections separated by a public road. The one adjoining the sea is the actual resort having a discotheque, swimming pool, hookah space, party hall and restaurant. The one away from the sea is the hotel with comfortable rooms.

There are two pools at the resort, one for the kids and the other for adults.

Excursions to nearby islands. 
The resort organises complimentary boat rides to the nearby islands - popular of which is the Mbudaya Marine Reserve. This island is a tropical paradise and just a 20 minute boat ride.

Food is one of the highlights of this resort. 
The resorts of the chefs have been around for many years and have mastered the art of cooking Indian food. 

This particular chef is popular with the staff and guests. He is known for his Indian food cooking skills.
