Bagamoyo - Full Day Tour

Bagamoyo 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.  Bagamoyo was founded towards the end of the 18th century as a small port trading in dried fish, gum, cobalt and salt.  Bagamoyo also served as a caravan entreport, with traders coming from distant areas of the interior, as far as Morogoro and Usambara.  Later on, the use of this town for Ivory and slave trade increased its importance in the 19th century. 

Renowned European explorers like Burton, Speke, Stanley and Livingstone all passed through Bagamoyo.  The Holy Ghost fathers established their first mission station in Bagamoyo in 1868, and it was in its chapel that Dr. Livingstone’s body was brought from the interior and kept before being shipped back to Europe.
