This well-preserved 16th-century mosque stands at the mouth of the Mwachema River. The high-ceilinged prayer room is still used regularly by worshippers. The Mosque is surrounded by baobab trees, which grow to great size here since there are no elephants to root them out. It's respectful for lady visitors to cover their heads, shoulders, and knees in whatever mosque they visit. A good tip is to carry a scarf and a kikoi to wrap around the body if necessary.
