History

vasco da gama - FAQs

Vasco de Gama. During his voyage to India, Vasco de Gama landed at Malindi, on the coast of what became Kenya. Here, early in 1498, he managed to obtain a pilot to guide his fleet across the sea to his goal – the trading port of Calicut.

Naturally, people of Malindi are kind and welcoming, and it has been inscribed in their culture to be welcome. However, some sections of historians claim that the reason why rulers of Malindi welcomed the Portuguese is basically due to their rivalry with the people of Mombasa.

Since Portuguese was a new formidable European power, creating an alliance and friendship with them would come handy during times of war.
