Pemba & Mafia Islands

Pemba Island forms part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, lying within the Swahili Coast of the Indian Ocean, and remains largely undiscovered and thus less-crowded. The landscape is hilly and lushly vegetated, while much of the coast is lined with mangroves and lagoons, with un-spoiled coral reefs allowing spectacular diving opportunities. Visit the Ngezi Forest Reserve with its indigenous jungle complete with vines providing swings for raucous vervet monkeys, or take a trip to one of the islands ruins.

To the South of Pemba is the Mafia archipelago, which consists of one large island and several smaller ones. These well-preserved islands host antiquities dating back to the eleventh century, and this mix of historical influence together with a strong traditional culture give visitors a more interesting vacation.
