Tanga City Historical Tour- 3Hrs

The German Colonial Period; Public buildings are solid and impressive making their presence felt wherever they stand. The Germans developed a special colonial architecture for tropical areas that included elements of Arabic design from places like Zanzibar, and made maximum use of local materials such as coral stone, mangroves, timber, sand and stones, and decorating the buildings with intricate arches, mosaics, elaborate masonry and wood craftsmanship.

The British Colonial Period; Building were mostly erected after the Second World War and based on architectural designs of that period. Examples are the library, Katani House and others, built by commercial companies such as banks and agro-industrial firms, or by philanthropists who had become wealthy from the booming sisal industry. As Tanganyika was not a full colony, Britain did not invest as much as Germany in infrastructure and public buildings.

Day Trip to Lushoto from Tanga City (Usambara Mountains)

The first European to reach Lushoto was the Missionary Johann Ludwig Krapf who in 1849 was given a warm welcome by king Kimweri I. In 1886 the German colonists entered the Usambaras and persuaded the local chiefs to sign away their domain for a pittance. The subsequent German advance was made easier because- in the latter half of the nineteenth century – Usambara was racked by chaos. The slave trade had started to invade the mountains, while at the same time the Sambaa-Kilindi-Dynasty was caught up in a civil war against the Bondei tribe who wanted independence.

After consolidating their rule, the German Colonial Government founded today’s Lushoto in 1898 as “Wilhelmsthal” (after the name of the German emperor), which became an important center of colonial settlement and plantation agriculture. Located at 1,400 m above sea level, the climate is cool and subtropical and up to independence much favored by European settlers. In 1912, the district already had 13 plantations.

The sisal industry is the oldest commercially organised agricultural undertaking and one of the longest surviving agricultural industries in Tanzania. Introduced in 1893 by Dr. Richard Hindorf a German Agronomist, as a commercial crop, the sisal industry grew to become the most extensive commercial agriculture and primary processing in Central Africa, spreading to Kenya, Mozambique and Angola.

Our experience in Tanga and with the Tanga Cultural Tourism Enterprise (CTE) was incredible. Imani, our tour guide, was so welcoming when we arrived. He gave us a brief history of the area and highlighted the different programs and tours offered in the area. The first day we were taken on a walking tour of the city. Not only is it a beautiful city that lies next to the Indian ocean, everyone is so friendly and the streets aren't crazy busy, giving the town a relaxed feel. We tried out some coconut wine at the local bar and then ended the tour at Imani's house, where we were lucky enough to share a meal with him and his family. The next day, we went on a bike tour to the Amboni Caves and the Sulphur Hot Springs. Because Tanga is relatively flat, the bike ride was super relaxing, allowing us to take in the sights and city. The Amboni Caves are absolutely stunning and the tour throughout the cave was filled with humour and information about the caves. The next part of the bike ride was through scenic fields, ending at the vibrant blueish green sulphur spring. Through all of this, Imani taught us so much about each attraction as well as the surrounding area. We went back to Imani's families house for lunch, where we went through the entire process of making pilau. This was definitely a highlight for me. It's a lot of work but the end result is delicious! After lunch, we headed to the museum, where we learned about Tanga's history and the German occupations of the area. We ended the evening off with a bike ride down by the ocean. Tanga is a place that should absolutely be on anyone's list when coming to Tanzania. Imani and the Tanga CTE were incredible and we can't thank them enough for our incredible experience in Tanga.
