Slave Route of Zanzibar

This excursion begins at the Dhow Harbour in Malindi, where slave ships brought their human cargo from Bagamoyo to Zanzibar and on to the world beyond, then heading to the house of Tippu Tip, the notorious Arab slave trader. The tour continues at the Anglican Church, built by missionary Edward Steere on the old slave market, site of human misery for hundreds of years. From here, youll be driven to Mbweni, past the missionary graves to visit Mbweni Ruins, formerly a school for freed slave girls, before heading to Livingstone House and onto Mangapwani Beach. At Mangapwani, you can walk through the caves, which stored hundreds of slaves, kept waiting for the monsoons and the arrival of the dhows to be exiled away from home. At the end of this excursion, youll have time to reflect, relax on the golden sands of the beach and enjoy a buffet lunch at Mangapwani Restaurant, which is operated at Zanzibar Serena Inn.
