The beach was quiet and relaxing with no beach boys bothering you. Food was great, best pizza I`ve had by far but dont expect a good morning coffee. I didnt like the instant coffee.... More

This place is located like 7Km away from the city of Dar at KIGAMBONI city. I spent my evening relaxation at the Kijiji Beach sipping drinks, enjoying their delicious sea food, sand beach, sea breeze and every fun. Got a chance to meet new friends and networking. It is a place to be when you are in Dar es salaam.

It was an absolute heaven for my family and myself to stay in Kijiji. After being on bad roads in most of our travels in Tanzania, it was a welcome relief to come to a place where staff are friendly, rooms are clean and just the perfect setting for a real tropical experience.
