Go on a history tour of beautiful Bagamoyo. A centre for dhow-boat building, it was the capital of German East Africa before Dar Es Salaam. Once an important destination for slave and ivory traders, the town saw many uprisings against the colonial settlers in the late 19th Century, records of which can be seen at the Bagamoyo Museum. Today, this sleepy town with beautiful beaches such as the Lazy Lagoon, is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Take a boat ride to the Ruvu River Delta for a fascinating bird-watching experience and you will be greeted by hippos and crocodiles as well!
