Flickr 上 Eric LafforgueRamparts of Gerezani fort in Kilwa Kisiwani, Tanzania


Ramparts of Gerezani fort in Kilwa Kisiwani, Tanzania
Most of the tourist who go to Tanzania see Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar, but all along the coast, you can see some very interesting remainings of the fomer cultures who came for centuries...
Gerezani Fort, UNESCO World Heritage
Kilwa Kisiwani, South Coast, Tanzania
Kilwa Kisiwani was once the most famous trading post in East Africa. In 9th century the Swahili owner of the island sold it to a trader called Ali bin Al-Hasan. From 11th Century to early 15th Ali bin Al-Hasan managed to create a powerful city (Kilwa Kisiwani) and as major trading center along east African coast. He built a great mosque, established close trading links to interior of southern Africa .
Kilwa Kisiwani became the principle trading port on the Indian Ocean. Its wealth came from the exchange of gold and iron from Great Zimbabwe and other part of Southern Africa, ivory and slaves from mainland Tanzania with textiles, Jewelry, porcelain and spices from Asia.
By the 13th Century Kilwa had become the most powerful city on the East African Coast, exercising political and trading domination as far as Pemba Island in the north and the modern Beira in Mozambique in south .
The outside world came to know Kilwa through Ibn Batuta who had visited Kilwa in 1331, and the Portuguese sailors who visited the place about 170 years after Batuta.

According to a recent report, the US Army is interested in the possibility of using the African salamander for the detection of various mines. The rat is already actively used by the military of Tanzania and Mozambique, which uses the rats to search for underground mines in these countries.


In the APOPO (an African humanitarian organization that runs the training project) program, rats are trained from birth not only to smell out explosives but also diseases such as tuberculosis, or even humans who may be trapped after an earthquake or tornado.

The African rats will work for food, especially banana paste and have a big advantage over dogs in field environments in that they weigh only about 6 pounds, so they won’t set off mines and other explosives when they step on them. The only drawback of the rats is that their “sniff” details for mines can cover only about 100 square yards a day.

History instructor at the US Military Academy at West Point, John Ringquist, suggested that the US Army Research Laboratory develop a similar project in the US armed forces after seeing the rodents in action by sending a team to watch operations in Mozambique, where the rats look for real bombs. He said that it’s highly effective and the rats could be effective for humanitarian missions, border control or in explosive ordnance detection.

Interesting stuff! Thanks Kiligoland.

You know, I was thinking about creating a website while back about the remains of kilwa, Bagamoyo and old German bomas all around the country from Dar to kasulu. It's amazing how much potential these untapped historic remains got for our economy, if they are fully utilized.
