VISIT RUAHA NATONAL PARK

Bagamoyo was named by the slaves, as they left heartbroken and worrying about their families they had left behind – the name means `lay down your heart’ in Kiswahili. Although the slave trade officially ended in 1873, slaves continued to be
sold and traded in Bagamoyo through the end of the nineteenth century. During the slave trade, it was not uncommon to see hundreds of slaves walking through the streets of Bagamoyo chained together by the neck. Slaves were collected from the interior by capture, purchase or trade and then shipped to Zanzibar or Arab countries. The town of Bagamoyo was the centre of the 19th century slave trade.
