Located on the northeast coast of Tanzania 50 km south of Tanga, Pangani offers pristine beaches and a variety of activities. It provides an ideal place to relax, soak up the sun and escape from the hectic nature of safari and daily life. Like many coastal Tanzanian towns, Pangani has historical buildings, plantations and factories established by Arabs, Germans and British. If the history does not peak your interest, just simply relax on the shores of the clear, blue Indian Ocean and enjoy snorkeling around offshore coral reefs. Pangani is less visited than Zanzibar, making it a unique place for a calm few days. If you fancy a visit, Pristine Trails will organize your transport, accommodation, and any activities you wish you enjoy.
Bagamoyo is located just 50 km north of Dar es Salaam on the northeast coast of Tanzania. It was the original capital of German East Africa and an especially important trading port on the East African coast. Its culture was vastly influence by Indian and Arab traders, Christian missionaries, and the German colonists. There is much to see and experience in Bagamoyo, in addition to enjoying the white sandy beaches typical of Tanzania's coasts. The Kaole Ruins date back to the 13th and 14th centuries and are worth a visit. Another interesting location to see is the Catholic mission and museum, the last place on African soil that housed David Livingstone's body before being transported to London. Bagamoyo also boasts a vibrant artists community as a result of the Bagamoyo College of Arts, where it is often possible to arrange drumming or dance lessons. Overall, it is an interesting town to visit and another beach town where you can relax and enjoy the sounds of the calming ocean waves.
