Slave Trade Tour – Full Day

There were numerous routes used by slave traders across the islands, especially after the slave trade was declared illegal. Such excursions can begin at Kelele square where slave ships brought their human cargo from Bagamoyo to Zanzibar, moving to the house of Tippu Tip, the notorious slave trader and then on to the Anglican Church, built on the old slave market. From here, tours often move to Mbweni, past the missionary graves to visit Mbweni Ruins, formerly a school for freed slave girls, before we come back to Stone Town for lunch. After lunch we proceed to the house of the good slaves friend Dr. David Livingstone who campaigned for the abolition of slavery which marked its end in 1873. We will also visit Maruhubi Ruins where 99 necked enslaved women were entertaining the Arab Sultan of Zanzibar (1870-1888) in the luxurious palace. The last stop is at Mangapwani chamber where slaves were kept waiting for monsoon winded boats to fetch them and to be exiled.
