It is the country's most important business and commercial hub and is situated right on the Indian Ocean. It is the main port of call for most visitors, as it is the ideal place from which to access both the wilderness areas and the beaches of Tanzania and Zanzibar. Most visitors en route to the better-known Tanzanian attractions are surprised by the charm of this unassuming city and find themselves yearning for more time to explore its hidden secrets.
