The Swahili Coast encompasses the whole of Tanzania's beautiful coastline. You can include a visit to this dramatic and historic coast in a driving or flying safari or, if you prefer you can sail along sections or all of it.

The coast is rich in history and linked with the trades in Ivory, gold and spices. Along the coast there are a variety of ancient ruins and historic sites. It is possible to visit the starting point of many of the famous caravans and exploration expeditions into the interior of Tanzania.

The coast of Tanzania has a lot to offer and due to the ease of access between the different locations, it is easy to describe this as a circuit in it's own right.

Locations along the Swahili Coast include: Dar es Salaam, Bagamoyo, Pangani, Kilwa, Mtwara and Mikandani, Lindi The Rufiji Delta, Sadaani National Park and Tanga Town. All have different range of activities to offer and present their own unique blend of traditional culture and ancient history. To get the most out of your visit to a particular area we recommend a minimum stay of two nights in each location.
