Mafia island

Mafia Island

Located about 80 km south of Zanzibar, Mafia Island is not part of the archipelago of Zanzibar and its proximity to the River Rufiji delta gives it a special place in the history of Tanganyika.

Mafia Island is a paradise for fishermen, divers and those who want to enjoy the pleasures of the sea. The sea is extraordinarily clear and the variety of corals allows for an abundance of fish: barracuda, scorpion fish, tuna, mullet and marlin. Accessing Mafia is not so easy: infrequent scheduled flights; charter is often the easiest solution to/from Dar es Salaam.
