BAGAMOYO BEACH

Bagamoyo meaning lay down your heart is the oldest town in Tanzania and is designated as Tanzania’s seventh world heritage site. Its rich history is influenced by the German colonial government, Christian missionaries and by Indian and Arab traders. Bagamoyo lies beside the Indian Ocean, but is no longer a busy port city.
The Department of Antiquities is working to revitalize the town and maintain the dozens of ruins in and around it. We won’t tease you, we will arrange for an experienced guide to accompany you during your visits to the various historical sites. Some 200 meters from the ocean lay the German and Mwanamakuka cemeteries. The tombs at Mwanamakuka are built in traditional Arab style. The oldest of these dates back to 1793. The Chuo cha Sanaa, or College of Arts, is located next to the cemetery where clients can take drumming or sculpture lessons from students at the college. The Roman Catholic Mission is home to the oldest Roman Catholic Church in East and Central Africa. The town’s history is explained in detail at the Bagamoyo Museum located at the mission.

Bagamoyo is historically known as the major slave trading post in East Africa where slaves were sold and traded through the end of the 19th century. You will visit the last place where slaves stayed before boarding ships to Europe and America, Other points of historical interest in Bagamoyo include the Kaole Ruins, the German Boma and the German hanging place.
