See unspoilt beaches at pristine Pangani! A small Swahili outpost with a long history as an Arab settlement and a slave-trading center, Pangani is lesser-known and more remote than neighboring Zanzibar. With humble beginnings as a coastal dhow port, Pangani was converted to a station on the caravan route from Lake Tanganyika for exporting slaves and ivory. Local elders act as your guide in Pangani, delving deep into their reservoir of knowledge to tell you more about the history and culture dating back to the 15th Century. Apart from spectacular beaches, Pangani is also home to the fossils of 200-300 million year old dinosaurs.
