Welcome to Kigoma


Other than a few scattered buildings dating from the German colonial era, including the train station and what some call Kaiser House (now the home of the regional commissioner), Kigoma has no real attractions, but the pleasant ambience, some good restaurants and a lively market, plus nearby villages and beaches, make it a nice spot to spend a few days.
