Bagamoyo was the most important trading entry port of the east central coast of Africa in the late 19th century. Bagamoyo, which means “lay down your heart” lies 75kms north of Dar Es Salaam. Bagamoyo was the starting point of the slave caravan routes and also the terminus of the white missionaries thus making it the oldest town in Tanzania.
Book a car to Bagamoyo for only US$ 150 per day and get a chance to Visit Kaole Ruins (dating back to the earlier part of the 15th century), and the first Roman Catholic Church in Tanganyika built by the Germans in the 1880′s. You can also visit the museum, which houses numerous historical artifacts and white sandy beaches where you can spend your time relaxing or swimming in the clear blue waters.
