Lindi is the administrative capital of the Lindi region. It is situated on the western bank of the Lukuledi estuary and is the most developed town on the stretch of the coast between Dar es Salaam and Mtwara. Lindi lay under the Omani rule throughout the 19th century serving as a stop on the slave caravan route from Lake Nyasa. Lindi has a modern layout of streets and few buildings but does not appeal as much as the newly developed port of Mtwara. Many colonial era buildings are still to be found in Lindi but most of them are ruined.

Lindi is connected by road to Dar es Salaam. The 470km road is in quite a bad condition though and is not advisable to pass in the rainy season
