MAFIA ARCHIPELAGO YACHT CHARTERS

MAFIA ISLAND

Mafia Island Archipelago, is comprised of over a dozen islands and is home to Whale Sharks and a whole lot more!

The Mafia Archipelago Marine Park supported by the World Wide Fund for Nature, forms part of the coral reef protecting the coast of Tanzania. It is situated about 130 km south of Dar-es-Salaam and about 25 km from the mainland.

Comprised of a number of islands and uninhabited coral atolls, Mafia is a spectacularly diverse natural environment. It offers a unique mix of Africa within a tropical setting. Large palm groves, mango & cashew trees dominate the island while impressive baobab trees are dotted amongst typical African savannah grassland. Monkeys, small antelopes, wild pigs, lemurs and dwarf hippos run wild while falcons, fish eagles, Comoro bats 'flying foxes' and giant turtles have also made it their breeding ground.

Mafia is little changed from ancient times. It retains a traditional, unspoilt non-commercialised friendly culture, where local people go about their business as artisans, farmers, fishermen and sailors.

As with all the islands that fringe the East Coast of Africa, Mafia's history is deeply rooted within the empires of the ancient. Creeper-clad ruins inhabit the forest on the tiny offshore island of Chole Mjini, once one of the most important trading towns on Africa's East Coast.

 

For centuries, silver from the mines of Zimbabwe was the highest quality in the world and from Mafia, huge dhows sailed the monsoon winds across the Indian Ocean delivering this silver for the smelting of the finest swords throughout the Indian and Ottoman empires. 

Sail & Safari Mafia

Only a short light aircraft flight connects safaris in East Africa like the Selous and Serengeti to Mafia Island. You can literally be on safari in the morning and on a yacht in the afternoon.

COMBINING MAFIA ISLAND, YACHTS & SAFARIS

SAFARIS

TAILOR MADE SAFARIS

Combining the Mafia Archipelago with a safari is dead easy.

We highly recommend combining the Mafia Archipelago with the Selous and the East Africa safari region because there are daily flights direct between Mafia Island and all the major safari destinations in East Africa, so it's very easy!

The choice of East Africa safari camps and safari lodges are huge and the option you go for will depend on what sort of experiences you are looking for and your budget, as prices vary greatly.

 

You can be on safari in the morning and on a luxury yacht or island resort in the afternoon!

Southern Africa & South Africa

Its also very easy to combine Zanzibar with other Southern African destinations, because there are also daily flights to Zanzibar from JHB which is one of the main air hubs connecting most of the major safari destinations in Southern Africa.
