You know what they say, ‘once you go East, you don’t go back’ or maybe I just made that up 😂
Hi loves! I hope this post finds you well on this cold but beautiful Tuesday morning.
A lot of people underestimate Dar Es Salaam as a tourist destination because they compare it to the likes of Nairobi city , in that there isn’t much to be done. I totally disagree, Dar has a lot to offer, you just have to know where to look!
On this post I’m going to share with you one of my favorite spots when in Tanzania.
Bagamoyo is a town just an hours drive (or less depending on traffic) from Dar Es Salaam. It is characterized by narrow, unpaved streets such as those to be found in Lamu town. It is not much of a coincidence as both are coastal towns that date back to the Mid-19th century.
In the sleepy town of Bagamoyo is where you will find Firefly Lodge. It is an eco-friendly hotel that offers bed and breakfast accommodation that will set you back $55 (5,500 ksh). They also serve local grown food in their restaurant.
In addition to being a earth-friendly, historic venue, Firefly is also a place to just relax. Tread the cool wide corridors; Breathe the scent of ocean mingled with Home-Grown herbs.
Firefly has everything you need in one place;
You can enjoy a cold Kilimanjaro by the pool which is surrounded by comfortable sitting areas and a hammock for pure relaxation.
Every Friday night the town is gathered at firefly, to watch upcoming local artists.
They offer wonderful massages, scrubs, waxing, manicures and pedicures.
Leave feeling refreshed.
They offer on-site yoga classes with our talented coach, on request.
Thanks for reading
Love & love 💕
