Tales from the Bagamoyo road

This was definitely a place that caught me off guard! Two hours from the hustle and bustle of the beats of the Dar-es-salaam city – Bagamoyo just seemed to pop out from some beautiful-secret-places book and had me rolling down my window and snapping away.

A place with so much rich history; from the early tales of the traders to the ancient ruins around. Story has it that the name “Bagamoyo” came to be because of the slaves who “cast their hearts” in this place during the notorious slave trade that happened then.

Bagamoyo is definitely a place I would go back to visit thoroughly again!
