Zanzibar or Mafia Island?

Speak to our Tanzania expert

Mafia Archipelago


Around 170 km south of Zanzibar's main island lies the little known and unfortunately named Mafia Island, which is really a small archipelago of sparsely populated unspoilt islands.

Resorts on Mafia Island are limited to a handful of boutique resorts including the very charming Butiama Beach Resort. Mafia Island itself is 50 km by 15 km and consists of fishing and farming villages and a handful of rustic boutique resorts.

For an off the beaten track beach holiday, perhaps combined with a stay in Zanzibar's main island or with a safari in Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve, a beach holiday on Zanzibar's Mafia Island is a wonderfully exotic option.
