Description

The ruins on the island Songo Mnara are the last remains of a Swahili stone town, which had its zenith in the 15th century, directly related to its neighbour Kilwa Kisiwani. The large and complex structures, built with coral stones, demonstrate the wealth, the region created. In December 2009, the Zamani team documented the site, including the socalled ‘palace’, the mosque and some minor components of these largely collapsed and very fragile structures.
