Cycling is definitely a fun way to explore Bagamoyo where you will find yourself immersed in the rich history of this former capital in the German era. Passing along the roads had just shown us how much this area was affected by various cultures with all those exotic-styled buildings.
Getting the way to the Kaole Ruins is enjoyable with the amazing scenes overlooking the Indian Sea. In the Ruins, we had a glimpse on the traditions of this old trade center, including one of the oldest mosques in the midland Tanzania.
After the Ruins, the route leading to the Catholic Museum gave a different feeling just as we had entered into a completely different world. Don’t forget to pay yourself a visit for the museum if you want to know more about the Bagamoyo history.
The Art Market and a nearby beach were the fantastic add-ons to this trip where we experienced the true beauty and colours of African art and interacted with the local people. We even joined in their singing on the beach. The warm welcome received had indeed made our day.
There is definitely a lot to see in this trip, just do not miss your chance to go there, and you won’t regret it.
“Despite the bikes looking old – they were very safe and easy to ride. It was a very informative trip and we saw so much in just one day – completely enjoyed myself”
“I am a tall guy, so the bike didn’t fit me, it wasn’t a problem but actually was quite funny. The trip was very informative with rich history and had a lot great scenery which I enjoyed a lot”
