Dar es Salaam bleg

So I’m heading to Dar es Salaam tomorrow for a little over a week. I’ve been there plenty of times for the land titling project we’re working on, and am very familiar with the city, but still have yet to find the optimal place to sit and work in between meetings and visits to the communities we’re working with. Suggestions?¬†Good food and wifi are a plus.

I’ve found Africafe in Sea Cliffe village to be decent for this, but I’m not overly fond of the place. Epi D’Or is always nice, but no wifi as far as I can tell. The Southern Sun always seems to have free wifi, but the food there has gotten awfully expensive. Late at night, when everything else has closed, I sometimes escape to Level 8 bar on top of the Kilimanjaro, but I’m not that keen on the cheesy music and abundance of sex workers.

    I like the outdoor bar/terrace area at the Coral Beach hotel (now a Best Western?!). Food is hit or miss (the Indian dishes were always the best) but the views are just lovely and the wifi almost always works.

    Try Black Tomato Cafe at Makutano. Wifi off at lunchtimes but otherwise on. And/or buy yourself a 3G dongle, they’re pretty cheap.
