Directly on the Northern shore, one will find the old Omani Fort, built on the foundations of the old Portuguese fort, in the early 19th Century, and where still an old wooden door remains. The Big Mosque is from the 12th Century and was further extended up to the 15th Century. It was said to be the largest mosque in East Africa. The Great House directly south of the mosque was once a complex building, most likely the Sultan´s palace. In it, there are four graves, of which one is rumored to be of a Sultan. Back to Masoko by dhow for dinner.

Day 5: Kilwa Masoko - Dar es Salaam

After breakfast, we visit Kilwa Kivinje 30k north of Kilwa Masoko. The town has a good number of old colonial buildings and crumbling remains of ancient Omani buildings. The Old German Boma in Kilwa Kivinje overlooks the waterfront and is the town’s oldest building. Kilwa Kivinje is a 19th Century Arabian slave and ivory trading town from which southern caravans started into the interior of Africa. On the decline of Arab rule towards the end of the 19th century, the German colonial government constructed a fort and enlarged the town. Then we drive back to Dar es Salaam.
