About the Homestay
My house is quite simple, but very comfortable, with a little veranda and a big garden with coconut, orange and guava trees. If you happen to come with your own car I can offer you a parking space within the premises.
The house is located in Maweni/Kigamboni only 5 minutes walk to the next beach, a 10 minutes ride to ferry and 15 minutes to the new bridge.
There is a fan in your bedroom and one in the living room. Big windows - all with mosquito nets - allow the sun to come in. Your bathroom comes with a European style toilet and a cold water shower...but who needs hot water with these temperatures anyway?
Feel free to use my living room, the kitchen and the fridge. There is coffee and tea at any time.
Also, my dada can take care of your clothes for just a small amount of money.
I spend some time of the year in Kigamboni. When I am here, I would be happy to show you around or to organize some tours, e.g. city tours in Dar-es-Salaam, safaris to one of our national parks, a boat trip to a nearby island etc.
I can also arrange pick-up from the airport, Zanzibar ferry terminal or ferry in Kigamboni and bus terminal. Please contact me for up-to-date prices.
