We had a great time with Halisi African Adventures in Bagamoyo,
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.We went on a tour to learn more about Bagamoyo culture and history. It was all flexible and upon to our needs and wishes although our booking was on very short notice. Additionally to the Kaole Ruins and Stonetown, He always cared about us and was very polite and made the history alive.
All in all it was a really nice day with someone who lives in the place , knows all kind of people and could share some insghts.

I really enjoyed touring the Kaole ruins. Such fascinating history into Kaole’s beginnings. Although, the remains are left, you have some idea of what things looked like in that time period. I especially liked the baobab tree, mud creepers, and learning about burial practices of Islamic leaders. The lovers grave is also an interesting story as well. It’s a short tour but worth taking a look into. Enjoy!

The ruins have been destroyed with supernatural false theories. Something about a “well” which vanishes all your problems if you was to drink water from it and the tomb of the great granddaughter of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was apparently there too. The guy who works their has fed us information which no reliable source.

There are few ruins like Kaole in the Tanzania landscape. The visit to the place is a must when a visitor is in Bagamoyo. More learning and hearing very interesting history of slaves and the town. Well organized by the responsible authority who is in charge of the Kaole Ruins which is a clean and well-kept environment.

Kaole ruins of the tombes and mosque and Bagamoyo town are well worth a visit and the local guides are superb and well informed. Just a pity that everything is not better maintained for the future and in order to attract more tourists to the region and give more work to local people as it is well worth a visit.
