Land Activities at Mafia Island

About Us

GUIDED EXCURSIONS

Guided excursions are arranged to the islands and village communities of Chole and Jibondo. The boat building on both these islands is justly famous throughout East Africa. All traditional methods are used, with hand tools and hand-forged nails to create the jahazis, dhows, mashuas and ngalawas you will see in Mafia.

PICNIC DAY TRIPS

Kua Channel is one of our common daily destinations for the excursion boat El Nino, which will go somewhere each day for guests who wish to sunbathe and picnic on beaches or islets. Other lovely secluded picnic spots abound in Chole Bay: Miewe Island with its secluded beach and baobab trees; beaches on Juani and Jibondo Islands (by boat), Didimiza (at the end of the Nature Trail, by walking).

CYCLING

A great way to see the island and also to observe the lives of the local people and see how they use the land and depend entirely on nature.

WALKS & BIRDWATCHING

All walks in Mafia are enjoyable as the people of Mafia are friendly and do not harass visitors for any gifts or money……we do not have the “papassi” phenomenon that appalls visitors to Zanzibar

Bird watching in Mafia adds a very interesting dimension to a Tanzania wildlife safari, as the visitor will see many species of shorebird that cannot be observed in the main land National Parks and Reserves.

ROAD EXCURSIONS

Road safaris to other areas of Mafia complement the visitor’s experience and understanding of traditional village life; for example: Kirongwe village famous for its clay pots, Jimbo for its ukili mats, Mrora Forest, Ras Mbizi coconut plantation and Kitoni.
