Accommodation in Mafia Island – Indian Ocean – Tanzania
After becoming a strategic Indian Ocean trading post in centuries past, Mafia Island eventually reverted to its ways of old, once again becoming a peaceful place that’s home to rural fishing communities. Today, the island has the same feel, but much of its waters are now part of Tanzania’s first marine park. There are plenty of diving and deep-water fishing opportunities here. The historic ruins on Chute Island are accessible by boat, and those at Kilwa Kisiwani are just a short flight away.
