Amboni Caves

Amboni Caves

The caves being only 6.5kms from Tanga town and probably the most extensive cave system in East Africa are certainly most impressive. With our Caretaker/Guide and torches, we enter caves 3a and 3b, which offer a combined 750m of accessible passages. After about 50m we enter into a magnificent 15m high chamber overhung with huge stalactites. From this chamber we walk through several narrow passages and large caverns as we pass several impressive natural sculptures. The main Amboni cave has a spiritual significance to the Digo people. Mabavu is the name of a deity and the chamber associated with Mabavu is called Mzimuni where you will find scattered bones, food and other gifts.
