Bongoyo Island (or simply Bongoyo) is an uninhabited island in Tanzania, situated 2.5km north of the country's largest city, Dar es Salaam. It is the most frequently visited of the four islands of the Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve (DMRS) and a popular daytrip for both tourists and Tanzanian residents alike for snorkelling and sunbathing.
The island lies close to the Msasani Peninsula (in the Kinondoni district of the city) and is reachable by means of a 30 minute boat ride from the mainland. The point of departure for most visitors to the island is 'The Slipways' hotel complex on the western side of the Msasani Peninsula.
You can head the shark´s lagoon trail, cross the lagoon (possible only at low tide), past the cave hole and the view point. Later you will find the small tree and behind the hidden cache box. During high tide you can walk along the central trail and later turn left.
Avoid contact to animals, they can be very dangerous! Don't stick your Finger in the hole before you are sure that no one is inside ...
