The Slipway is Dar es Salaam’s premier shopping and leisure centre. Here, you can shop, drink, dine or watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean. Parents can set their children loose in our waterfront playground, and travelers can relax in our lovely hotel rooms.

The Slipway began life as a boatyard, and you can still set sail from here: our boats leave regularly for the beautiful island of Bongoyo, the first marine reserve in Tanzania. Fishing trips, cruises and sea crossings to Mafia, Zanzibar and Pemba can also be arranged.

Whether you’re in search of souvenirs, books, a night out with friends or a bed for the night, you’ve come to the right place.

Something new always happens at The Slipway.
