Bagamoyo

Bagamoyo

Mid 19th century Bagamoyo 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 before being shipped.
Many European explorers including David Livingstone, Richard Burton and Henry Morton Stanley began and ended their trips here.
We explored town by tuk-tuk.
