Pangani is located at the mouth of Pangani River, is a small town in East Africa’s coast that was 55Kms South of Tanga with long history culture the town has Arabic, German, Asian and British Colonial rules influence. Home where Swahili, Arab, colonial traditions and modern hospitality blends together. It rose from obscure beginnings as just one of many coastal dhow ports to become a terminus of the caravan route from Lake Tanganyika, a major export point for slaves and ivory, and one of the largest ports between Bagamoyo and Mombasa. Sisal and copra plantations were established in the area, and several European missions and exploratory journeys to the interior began from here. By the end of the 19th century, the focus had shifted to Tanga and Dar es Salaam, and Pangani again faded into anonymity. Today the sleepy, dilapidated town makes for an interesting step back into history, and the area would do well to explore what remains of the old town on foot, while enjoying coastline with clean beaches where endangered Green Turtles
Ushongo beach, is a beautiful, long arc of fine white sand about 15km south of the Pangani River.
Sange Beach, Lovely, long and almost-deserted Sange beach is about midway between Pangani town and the northern border of Saadani National Park.
