Property Description

In 2014, the Slow Leopard was opened as a little sports bar dishing up a couple of different burgers. By 2017 it has become one of Dar es Salaam premiere bars and definitely the number one spot for burgers! Late in 2016 we opened the upstairs guesthouse with a double room as well as a 6 bed dormitory available for travelers looking for a place to crash at a reasonable budget.

Supremely located in the leafy suburb of Masaki, the Slow Leopard Dar is just minutes away from shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. From Masaki, it is a short trip to the city, the ferry to Zanzibar or even the islands of Bongoyo or Mbuya. Our bar downstairs is a favourite local spot, dishing up our famous burgers and cold drinks with plenty of live sport available.

So whatever your reason for being in Dar es Salaam, whether it be work, travel or catching up with friends, you can count on a clean and comfy bed in an air conditioned room and a cold drink at The Slow Leopard.

    A very nice and safe hostel, the only things the bar closes quit early. And if you try to book at the hostels website the payment does not work. I am going back there, because i liked it a lot

    Henry, and his team at Slow Leopard, are fantastic! Henry is happy to assist you in planning activities for the day, which is really helpful if you only have a short stay. From beer to laundry, the staff is happy to assist you with anything you need. They are also incredibly kind! The room and shared bathroom was clean and pretty spacious (especially for the price). Last, the location is prime! 10/10. The Slow Leopard is a catch!

    The hostel is located in Masaki/Oyster bay which is a rich affluent area of Dar. The location is okay, but it’s hard to get to places of interest from here. It feels very westernised and is quite expensive for TZ prices. Regardless of this the hostel id superb. Very clean and stylish. Rooms have excellent A/C and the toilets and hot showere are lovely. The bar downstairs is nice but a little expensive. Overall its a nice place to stay but a little on the pricy side. I recommend it.
