About Tanga

Vibrant and colourful, Tanga is an excellent introduction to Tanzania. The bustling port city is set on the Indian Ocean and charms visitors with its tree-lined streets, historic architecture and friendly locals. Visit museums and cultural attractions in the city centre or embark on a day trip to nearby attractions such as Tanga Coelacanth Marine Park and the Amboni Caves.

Things to do

As you explore Tanga, you’ll notice eclectic architecture from throughout the decades. Admire elegant Art Deco mansions on the Ras Kazone Peninsula and step into the beautiful St Anthony's Cathedral. In the city centre, you’ll see beautiful Arabian-inspired buildings featuring colourful glass windows, carved wooden doors and ornate balconies.

Stroll around the city to see friendly locals selling sweet espresso and ice-cold drinks under the shade of leafy mango trees. Other local specialties include “nyama choma” grilled goat and marinated “mishkaki” steak skewers. For dessert indulge in “kashata”, an African sweet made from roasted peanuts and coconut milk.

Boat trips depart from Tanga and take you to mangrove-fringed Toten Island, where you can explore the ruins of a 17th-century mosque. As you cruise to the island, keep your eyes peeled for dugongs, turtles and dolphins splashing in the water.

An easy day trip from Tanga, Pangani gives way to white sandy beaches lined with lush mangroves and swaying coconut palms. Bask in the sunshine and rehydrate with a freshly cracked coconut. Head north-west to discover the jagged limestone stalagmites and stalactites in the Amboni Caves.

Getting around

Tanga is pedestrian-friendly and easy to get around on foot. Taxis are a fast and affordable way to get from A to B while the city is also serviced by local buses. Renting a bike is a great way to explore Tanga on two wheels. Tanga Airport is a 10-minute drive from the city centre.
