Pangani is located south of Moshi and Arusha technically in Northern Tanzania, this area has escapade the development that the island of Zanzibar has seen, which makes this area a fantastic beach location to visit..

The town of Pangani is located at the mouth of the river also called Pangani. It was once an important slave trading port it has the eclectic mix of Swahili and Arabic influences in the buildings you would expect of such an important town it its time.

Historically it is well worth visiting. The other draw of this area is the stretches of palm fringed coastline which is unquestionably untouched and beautiful and best of all QUIET.

There are two properties here worthy of note, but our favourite is definitely The Tides. Please see or lodge section for full details of the properties in this area.

We would highly recommend a five to six night stay in Pangani as a very good alternative to Zanzibar, Mafia or Pemba.

Pangani can be reached by daily scheduled flights from Serengeti and Arusha and also from Ruaha, Selous and Dar es Salaam.
