Dar es Salaam in Photos

I thought I would so something a tad bit different this time and post a photo essay -as internet has been too slow to include more than one photo in each post. Beside, everyone loves looking at travel photos, right?! So, here you go, a few photos of Dar es Salaam!

Dock in Dar es Salaam

The above was shot as we were waiting to board the ferry in Dar es Salaam. It was a bright sunny day and not too hot -which is good cause there was a fish market nearby!

I don’t know why, but I seem to be fascinated by women walking with objects on their head. Perhaps I’m jealous. There is no way I could carry something on my head!

The man above was in the back section near the fish market -working quietly. I  kind of enjoyed watching him.

These little boys were so cute as they played soccer near the Zanzibar Channel. I loved watching them and marvelled at how well they played. I was thrilled when I capture this little boy after hitting the ball with his head.

Okay, it’s not really an essay with lots of photos, and for that, I apologise. Finding a wifi connection that works is a challenge and attaching photos is even more so. Unfortunately, this post took me the better part of 3 days -fighting with extremely slow connections. However, that being said, I am still loving my time in Africa.

As my trip continues I hope to upload more photos so I can share some of my favourite things about where I am. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my stories and accounts from the trip. 🙂

Travelling in Africa, solo can be a scary thought -especially for solo female travellers. I’m not saying it can’t be done, it can. What I am saying is that there is nothing wrong with joining a group tour.

For 45 days I travelled from Kenya to Cape Town with Intrepid Travel. This was my very first group travel experience. At first, I wasn’t sure what I had gotten myself into, but as time progressed, I began to relax and fall in love with this type of travel. In fact, I would definitely travel with Intrepid again. 

Kenya to Cape Town with Intrepid Travel

“Uncover some of Africa’s greatest sights on a journey from the dramatic Great Rift Valley to the beautiful southern coast. This trip offers endless opportunities for game viewing in some of Africa’s iconic nature reserves, as well as hidden gems like Chobe and Etosha national parks. The surging Zambezi crashing over the Victoria Falls, rolling savanna plains dotted with wildlife and the stunning, white-sand beaches of Zanzibar combine to create an inspiring overland adventure.” (visit the Intrepid Travel website for more information by clicking the link above)

**A very special thank-you to Intrepid Travel for sponsoring my trip from Kenya to Cape Town, as well as a thank-you, hugs and beers to my guide George Gathara, and the crew (Simon and Ben) for making my trip unforgettable.

    I know! I watch in complete fascination when they walk by. I was floored when I saw some carrying bundles of thatching grass on their heads!
