Bagamoyo is one of the more historic cities on the East African coast. It acted as both an ivory and slave trade port and boasts great history and many interesting sites, not to mention beautiful beaches. Traditional sail boats (dhows) are built in Bagamoyo and it's a large fishing area as well.
As most of the areas of Tanzania, Bagamoyo holds true in that both the town and her people are beautiful and inviting. There are many sites to visit around town that will please anyone interested in history to spectacular views and friendly locals. It's about an hour north of Dar Es Salaam (as the daladala travels) and is well worth the time and effort to visit.
