Top Descriptions

Tanga is one of ‘s largest cities, but it’s also one of its quietest too. While there may be very little on offer here to draw in casual tourists aside from its gentle seaside location, the city’s position between and Mombasa in makes for a very useful stopping off point. Perhaps just don’t plan on stopping off for too long! – Daniel
