Also there is an option of visiting the Shimoni Slave caves. This is where the slaves where “Stored” before being shipped to Arabia in the 16th century. In the 10th century, Arabs were slave traders; during this period they intermarried with the Bantus in the coastal regions to form the Swahili people. After the end of slave trade in the 17th century many Africans settled here, so don’t miss the opportunity to learn about the Swahili people!
