Tongoni Ruins

Tongoni ruins are one of the most famous ruins in the history of Shirazi people who once lived on the Indian Ocean coast of East Africa. As the old buildings speak, this is one of the first Shiraz settlements with everything that can depict their culture including old graves waiting you to explore. Beyond the ruins, take a fishing village cultural walk; this will give you an opportunity to meet descendants of those who lived in the ruins.

To get here, take the  and alight at the sign for Tongoni Ruins (the driver should tell you when to get off if you ask). From the sign, it’s a 15-minute walk down a dirt track toward the ruins and the sea. There’s only one turning – a fork in the road that you should head left at – so you shouldn’t get lost. Ask any villager for ‘mogofu’ if you do.

Although some travel guides list the entrance cost at TZS10,000, the ticket office was closed when we were there and no one was around to take payment. Perhaps you’ll be as lucky, because otherwise you might find the attraction a little overpriced.

Make sure you bus here early in the day. Buses seem to be quite infrequent coming back as the coastal road to Pangani doesn’t receive much traffic.
