Ruins

The main ruins in Tanzania are in Zanzibar, Kilwa and Mikandani. All are old Arab trading ports dating back 1000 years or more serving the trade from Great Zimbabwe. Stonetown, Zanzibar has its old fort and numerous remains of palaces and baths. Elsewhere along the coast, other ruins feature old mosques and palaces in Bagamoyo, Tanga and Tumbatu island.

Inland Tanzania as little to offer in terms of archaeological buildings, with the oldest structures dating back to the German missions of the late 1800s.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
