Take a peek at traditional Swahili coastal life at Mikindani. In the 15th Century, it was the central port in the Swahili coastal network at the Indian Ocean which stretched as far as the African hinterlands of Congo and Zambia! The winding streets and blend of African, Arabic and European architecture, still bear testimony to centuries of myriad influences. Mikindani is Tanzania at its unspoilt best – wonderfully undeveloped with tourism still in its infancy. Enjoy the marine park and superb beaches located near the large, well-protected harbour at Mikindani Bay or learn more about the culture and lifestyle from the friendly locals.
