Day Trip To Bagamoyo From Dar Es Salaam ..historical Tour And Relax To The Beach

star-4.5

Strolling through Bagamoyo’s narrow, unpaved streets takes you back to the mid-19th century, when the town was one of the most important settlements along the East African coast and the terminus of the trade caravan route linking Lake Tanganyika with the sea. Slaves, ivory, salt and copra were unloaded here before being shipped to Zanzibar Island and elsewhere, and many European explorers, including Richard Burton, Henry Morton Stanley and David Livingstone, began and ended their trips here. In 1868 French missionaries established Freedom Village at Bagamoyo as a shelter for ransomed slaves, and for the remainder of the century the town served as a way station for missionaries travelling from Zanzibar Island to the interior.

Home to approximately 120 tribal groups, most of these comprise small communities that are gradually being assimilated into the larger population due to changes in land use and the economic draw of city life. Pastoralists who fiercely guard their culture and traditions, Masaai tribal life revolves around protecting and caring for their herds of cattle and finding ample grazing land in their region. The 'Spice Islands' of the Zanzibar Archipelago, Pemba, Mafia, and the entire Tanzanian coast is home to the Swahili people, a vibrant mix of Arab, Indian and Bantu origins who historically based their livelihoods around Indian Ocean trade. The Swahili Coast, as the region is called, is a predominantly Islamic region with old mosques and coral palaces found throughout the area. Swahili culture centres around the dhow, a wooden sailing boat powered by the seasonal wind.

Dar es Salaam City Tours

Dar es Salaam City Tours

Very interesting city tour of Dar es Salaam 5/5 We are a swedish couple who 19/7 attended a day-tour of Dar es Salaam. Our guide Patrick is very knowledgable about all things Tanzanian. The tour let us experience the more "common" sights like the Fishmarket and Village-museum but also took us outside of the beaten path to other areas and neighborhoods around town . That gave us a rather unique cultural experience. It was obvious that our guide went to great lengths to make us experience a taste of the "real" Dar es Salaam. On comparison with other companies this full-day-tour was delivered at a very good price and offered excellent value for money. All in all we can recommend Nodven Tour with Patrick as a guide as a very entertaingi and enlightening way to spend a day in Dar es Salaam

Dar Es Salaam City Tour including Delicious Seafood Lunch

Dar Es Salaam City Tour including Delicious Seafood Lunch

Dar-es-Salaam City Tour Half Day Excursion explores Dar-es-Salaam – located on the Indian Ocean coast, Tanzania's largest city and logistics hub. It is affectionately known as 'Dar' but it is not the capital of the country - that title belongs to Dodoma. Dar-es-Salaam is primarily a port city in southern Tanzania, located on a huge natural harbor. "Dar-es-Salaam" means "haven of peace", but you'll find with almost 3 million people calling the city home, it's not exactly tranquil. Visitors to Dar-es-Salaam are usually en route to Tanzania's fantastic southern national parks including the Selous and Ruaha, or catching a ferry to the exotic Zanzibar archipelago.
