3 Days 2 Nights Bagamoyo Town Cultural Tour Tanzania from the Tanzania Safaris Packages is a short cultural holiday from Dar es salaam to Bagamoyo Swahili Historical town.

Bagamoyo town is found 70 kilometers north of Dar es salaam City. It is one and a half hour drive from Dar es Salaam International Airport or the Dar es Salaam City center.

Today, Bagamoyo Town is considered Tanzania’s Seventh World Heritage Site and the oldest town in Tanzania. Bagamoyo’s history has been influenced by Arab and Indian traders, the German colonial government and Christian missionaries.

Although Bagamoyo is no longer the busy port city that it once was, Tanzania’s Department of Antiquities is working to revitalize the town and maintain the dozens of ruins in and around Bagamoyo.

Bagamoyo was the major slave trading post in East Africa. Bagamoyo, which means ‘lay down your heart’ in Swahili, was probably given this name because Bagamoyo was the last place the slaves would stay in Tanzania before being shipped off to foreign lands.

Although the slave trade officially ended in 1873, slaves continued to be sold and traded in Bagamoyo through the end of the nineteenth century.

During the slave trade, it was not uncommon to see hundreds of slaves walking through the streets of Bagamoyo chained together by the neck.

Slaves were collected from the interior by capture, purchase or trade and then shipped to Zanzibar or Arab countries.

3 Days 2 Nights Bagamoyo Town Cultural Tour Tanzania offers tours to historical sites, heritage and cultural sites, museums, marine and boat safaris.

The Kaole Ruins are located 5 kilometers south of Bagamoyo town. The ruins are considered to be the first arab settlements left by Arabs and Shirazi Settlers.

This is a place where the first immigrants from the Persian gulf and others from the Somali land met with the indigenous people of the coast who were Swahilis who existed and occupied the Tanzanian coast between 6th – 7th centuries.

(Chami. Felix, 2002 the archaeological research of the Kaole ruins).
