Pangani, Tanzania

Pangani

The name Pangani owes to the river that runs through northern part of the Historical Town. Pangani is a very old town, it is believed to be established  before 6th Century BC as a coastal dhow port, but later became a station on the caravan route from Late Tanganyika for exporting slaves and ivory.

Several historical sites in and around the town serve as reminders for the strong Arabic influence and the later German, British colonial era in Tanganyika. The town served as port, when sisal plantations were set up in the colonial period, before the Tanga Harbor constructed. Nowadays it is mainly a fishing town  with a lot of coconut trees, providing nice beaches for quiet vacation.

Pangani is situated about 50km south of Tanga on the mouth of River Pangani that flows from the slopes of Mount  Kilimanjaro

   Attraction: Pangani Falls, a water fall that provides electricity for Tanga, Dar es SalaamArusha and Moshi.  Boat Safari on the Pangani River, which hosts birds and crocodiles. Maziwi Island, which was submerged due to environmental destruction and the effect of the global climate changes; is a nature reserve which provides ground  for snorkeling opportunity and dolphins tour. Walking tour in the historical town to see some of old buildings aged more than 200 years old, visits to a former slave labor camps and slave market site.
