Day Tour Historical Bagamoyo

  • On the trail of the past
  • Arabic, German, British history and old colonial buildings
  • Admire the beautifully carved doors of Bagamoyo

Bagamoyo is located 80 km north of Dar es Salaam on the Indian Ocean and was once one of the first and most important trading ports along the East African coast. Because of its location on the caravan trade routes, it has long been an important slave trading place. Let yourself be transported back in time on a tour through the old town of Bagamoyo. The town is full of historic monuments of ancient Arab and Portuguese architecture as well as historic German buildings and British colonial history. Visit the first Roman Catholic Church in East Africa built around 1868 and the nearby chapel where Livingstone’s body was laid before being taken to Zanzibar Town en route to Westminster Abbey.
