Spend a fantastic holiday in one of the most untouched destinations in Tanzania: the Mafia Archipelago is visited by relatively few tourists it is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. First visit the much smaller Chole Island where the lodge and community work in partnership to promote tourism and benefit the local area, and then go onto the main island for your last three nights.
From Dar es Salaam you will catch a domestic flight to Mafia' s airport, where a car will meet you and drive you through the island's quiet farming and fishing villages, along sandy roads, before arriving at a small white beach and turquoise sea, where you hop onto a boat for 20 minutes to reach the beautiful Chole Mjini Lodge. Spend 3 nights at this wonderful eco-lodge that works hard to be a part of their local community therefore giving you a fantastic chance to experience village life, as well as walking, snorkelling and diving.
In the morning a boat will take you back to Mafia Island and your next wonderful beach location. Here you can make the most of a variety of relaxed, yet well organized activities whilst staying in luxurious wooden bungalows that all enjoy sea views at Pole Pole. Head off to a pure white sand bar on a snorkelling trip and picnic excursion, or lie back and relax in one of the shaded hammocks to enjoy this beachside location.
After lunch a car will drive you back to Mafia Airport, for your 20-minute flight back to Dar es Salaam where your itinerary finishes.
