Mafia is a relatively unknown and untouched island, 160 kms south of Zanzibar, where rustic fishing communities and farming villages go about their lives in a way that has existed for generations.
The easy going, slow pace of life is taken to a greater extreme than the other islands and offers a wonderful option for travellers looking for a truly off the beaten track and adventurous experience.
The area's incredible marine life is under the protection of the extensive Mafia Island Marine Park which includes many stunning reefs, different species of nesting turtles and resident whale sharks. It is for this reason that Mafia is without doubt one of the finest areas for diving and snorkelling in the Indian Ocean.
A real "lifestyle" option for the active and open-minded. Some very cool and life enriching accommodation options.
Totally unique and extraordinary is Chole Mjini Lodge
Mainstream and comfortable lodges are Pole Pole and Kinasi
