Additional information

North of Tanga are the Amboni Caves. The caves are considered the “jewel in Tanga’s crown” – in fact the only formal tourist destination in that area. The cave system has never been fully explored, and so there is a wealth of stories that they are hundreds or just a few kilometers long. The Amboni-Caves are the largest limestone caves in East Africa and are located just 8 km north of Tanga. They were formed about 150 million years ago in the Jurassic era. The cave system covers an area of ​​234 km². According to researchers, the area was underwater about 20 million years ago. There are ten caves in total, but only one is used for guided tours.
