GEDI RUINS

Safari Details

The Ruins of Gede are the remains of a Swahili city, dating back to the 12th century and then rebuilt in the 15th and 16th centuries. This last reconstruction coincides with the emigration of many citizens of Kilwa to Mombasa, Malindi and places along the coast that brought it to over 2500 people.The city was and is immersed in the vegetation of the Arabuko Sokoke with city walls that separated the bourgeois class from ordinary citizens. In the rich part of the city there are still mosques, the sultan's palace and many houses where objects from all over the world have been found.The ruins of Gede were declared a National Monument in 1927 and declared a National Park in 1948.An ancient legend says that anyone who ruins or removes anything is haunted by evil spirits ... so watch out
