Tanga

Tanga is both the name of the most northerly seaport city of Tanzania, and the surrounding Tanga Region. Step out of Tanga to go to Pangani and see Mike's Deep Sea Fishing Pangani, which is approximately 1h 55 min away. There's still lots to do: Head underground at Amboni Caves, take an in-depth tour of Urithi Tanga Museum, and look for gifts at Abdul Jewellers.

Nairobi, Kenya to Tanga is an approximately 10-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of flight and car. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Nairobi in November; daily highs in Tanga reach 32°C and lows reach 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 23rd (Mon) to allow time for the car ride to Lushoto.

Mountains · Parks · Nature & Parks
Tailor-made for ecotourism, the Tanga Region boasts unspoiled natural resources, untamed landscapes, and robust plant and animal life. Several national parks offer insight into Tanzania's northeastern wildlife, as well as the forest conservation efforts that support rare birds and the endangered red colobus monkey. Outdoor adventurers on holiday in the Tanga Region shouldn't miss the Usambara Mountains, one of the world's most biodiverse areas; the former German colonial town of Lushoto provides a comfortable base for exploration of the woodlands.
