The trip starts from Dar Es Salaam. Morning time about 7.30 am we will pick you up from your hotel or another agreed point and start the way to Bagamoyo. Bagamoyo is a magic place, where you can stroll through the narrow, unpaved streets, taking you back to the mid-19th century, when the town was one of the most important settlements along the East African coast; the terminus of the trade route linking Lake Tanganyika with the sea. Slaves, ivory, salt, and copra were unloaded before being shipped abroad. Many European explorers, including Richard Burton, Henry Morton Stanley, and David Livingstone began and ended their trips here. In 1868, French missionaries established Freedom Village at Bagamoyo as a shelter for ransomed slaves. For the remainder of the century, the town served as a way-station for traveling missionaries. During the city trip, you will have a lunch break to the taste of the local cuisine. The day tour includes Stone town, crocodile farm, Bagamoyo Museum, Kaole ruins, fish market, and the Old Port. In the evening you will return to your point. This is where your safari ends.
