Where Is Kilwa on a Map?

Kilwa Masoko, which is where you most likely want to head when you are visiting the ruins of the ancient sultinate of Kilwa, is located on Tanzania’s southern coast, in the region of Lindi, approximately 300 km south of Dar es Salaam.

Kilwa Kisiwani and Songo Mnara (the two islands that make up a UNESCO World Heritage site) are each located 2 km and 15 km from Kilwa Masoko, respectively, across Kilwa Masoko Bay. See the map below for a clearer picture.

Dar es Salaam to Kilwa

To get to Kilwa Masoko, you can drive from Dar es Salaam or get there by plane or bus.

Personally, I drove there and it was an easy 6-hour drive over good tarmac road.

Buses from Dar es Salaam to Kilwa depart from the Rangi Tatu bus stand in the neighbourhood of Mbagala.

There are daily buses and minibuses, and you can expect to pay approximately 13,000 Tanzanian shillings for the journey.

Buses depart in the morning between 5:30 a.m. and noon.

I would recommend that you buy your ticket the day before you travel (though you do not have to). For a safe and comfortable bus, travel with Swahili Bus.

Once in Kilwa Masoko, How Do You Get To Kilwa Kisiwani?

The easiest way to visit the Kilwa ruins is to organize the excursion through your hotel (that’s what I did).

Alternatively, you could organize this yourself.

To do so, first, you would need to get a permit to visit the ruins from the Antiquities Division in Kilwa Masoko (a permit for the day costs Tsh. 2,000 for Tanzanians & Tanzanian residents and Tsh. 27,000 for foreigners).

Once you’ve got your permit, you then need to organize transportation to either or both islands.

To do this, head to Kilwa Masoko port.

There you’ll be able to hire a boat to take you to any of the nearby islands.

You can expect to pay Tsh. 15,000-20,000 for a return trip to Kilwa Kisiwani on a  dhow (a local sailboat), and about Tsh. 35,000 for a motorboat.

The prices to Songo Mnara should be about double that.

Although the ruins of Kilwa are well documented in both English and Swahili, it is still a good idea to get a guide to take you from one historical site to another and give you interesting tidbits all the while. A guide should cost Tsh. 15,000-20,000 per group.

If you do opt to organize your excursions yourself, note that the Antiquities Division is a government office. It, therefore, opens only on weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.


How Does One Get To Kilwa Kivinje?


Kilwa Kivinje is only a 20-minute drive from Kilwa Masoko, and no permit is needed to visit the historical sites there.

You can easily catch a public minibus, known in Tanzania as a dala-dala, to get there.

Alternatively, you can organize a tour through a Kilwa tour operator such as Kilwa Islands Tour.

Then again, you can also just inquire at your hotel!
