Mafia Island
is a substantial tropical landmass, covering 435 square kilometres and lying 25km off the coast of mainland Tanzania, 100km to the south of Dar es Salaam and 150km to the south of Zanzibar Island.

Mafia is a very beautiful island with a very relaxed Swahili Coast atmosphere, superb diving and an interesting choice of small lodges. It also happens to be one of the best locations in the world for swimming with whale sharks.

The main potential downsides are that the beaches are not the greatest, the lodges are all quite outdoorsy and transport connections can be a little more complicated than those to Zanzibar Island, especially if you are connecting with the great safari areas to the north.
