Pangani is situated on the southeast coast of the Tanga region.
The main attraction of Pangani is the pristine coastline to the north and south of Pangani town. There are also several attractions in and around Pangani that can be visited during day trips. Although many of Pangani's visitors are ex-patriates and wealthy Tanzanians, there are several beautiful hotels around Pangani town just waiting for tourism to pick up. For now, Pangani is the perfect beach destination for travelers seeking to escape the crowded resorts and aggressive street vendors in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
Pangani River: Pangani River, once an important transport channel for slaves and ivory, is now seldom used as a means of transportation from Tanzania's interior to the coast. Boat trips can be arranged up the river to observe the abundant birdlife and riverine ecosystem. Crocodiles and hippos are sometimes seen along the river and a trip up the river offers an opportunity to view Tanzanian village life.
