The quiet settlement of Pangani lies at the mouth of the river after which it is named, surrounded by pristine beaches that make it an ideal coastal holiday destination. This peaceful fishing town has an interesting history peppered with Arabic and German influences, and offers many walking tours to 200-year-old historical sites. An exciting option for intrepid travellers is a boat safari on the Pangani River, where crocodiles lurk beneath the water’s surface and birdlife abounds in the surrounding mangroves. The submerged island of Maziwe is now a marine reserve providing fabulous snorkelling opportunities and dolphin tours.
