  • in 1498, vasco da gama, the portuguese explorer, became the first european to visit the tanzanian coast; in 1502, on his second visit there, he made kilwa tributary. in 1505, kilwa was sacked by francisco d'almeida, another portuguese explorer, and by 1506 portugal controlled most of the coast of e africa. the portuguese did not cooperate with the local people, and their impact was mostly negative—trade was disrupted, towns declined, and people migrated from the region. however, kilwa's trade seems to have grown as a result of contact with the portuguese. toward the end of the 16th cent., the zimba, a group from se africa, moved rapidly up the coast, causing considerable damage; in 1587 they sacked kilwa and killed about 3,000 persons (roughly 40% of its inhabitants). factmonster.com
