Lindi is a coastal town located at the far end of the Lindi Bay, on the Indian Ocean in southeastern Tanzania. The town is 450 kilometers south of Dar es Salaam and 105 kilometers north of Mtwara, the southernmost coastal town in Tanzania, and gives its name to the surrounding Lindi Region, one of the most sparsely populated areas of the country. Lindi is located at the mouth of the Lukuledi River. The region was once an important sisal-producing plantation area, especially in Kikwetu. During the rainy season Lindi is presently accessible only by air and sea, with roads open during the dry season. The locals, known as Swahilis, are mainly engaged in fishing in Lindi Bay and some farming on the outskirts of the town. From the coast the land rises sharply to the escarpment hills of Mtanda, once a residential area for colonial civil servants, with striking views of Lindi Bay.
