Mikindani is an old Swahili port that was once the centre of trade in southern Tanzania. The original inhabitants (the Makonde people) were joined around the ninth Century AD by Arab traders. A further influx of Arabs occurred in the 19th century under the reign of Seyyid Said, the graves and mosques from this period can still be seen.
