The Magic of Mafia
4 days, 3 Nights Mafia Island Beach Safari
Mafia Island is another secluded and pristine member of the Zanzibar archipelago. Located in the southern section of the island chain, Mafia is perfect for those who wish to completely escape to a tropical paradise. A handful of eco-lodges subtly operate amidst the natural surroundings, offering only occasional electricity (but plenty of sensational and impossibly fresh cuisine). Four days on Mafia easily drift away as you spend time in the shade of a palm tree, or in the heart of Mafia Island Marine Park. As East Africa’s largest protected marine reserve, a dip in these waters quickly reveals a vibrant underwater landscape that teems with tropical fish and brightly coloured corals. With limited development and limited tourism, this island is most certainly a gem within the Indian Ocean.
Given the short duration of this tour, it is especially well-suited to individuals or groups that are already in Tanzania. If however you are interested in this package and you are not residing in Tanzania, it is also possible to add this trip to Mafia onto the end of one of our other packages, creating a bespoke tour that perfectly suits your needs and desires.
What to Expect
An escape to Tanzania’s India Ocean provides ample opportunity for rest and relaxation. However, there are also a number of wonderful sights and activities guests can look forward to. For this particular package, that may include:
• Tropical beaches and the Indian Ocean
• Snorkelling (or scuba diving) with tropical fish and possible sea turtles
• Sailing trips on traditional Tanzanian dhows
• Swahili culture through food and spices
