Mafia Island Tours and Travels
About Mafia Island
With its picture-perfect white sandy beaches and crystal clear, shimmering water, Mafia Island is one of Africa's premier tropical getaways. Similar in style to the nearby Zanzbiar, Mafia Island has, fortunately, avoided mass tourism and development and has remained virtually untouched, maintaining all of its cultural identity. While this means you are likely to have much of the island to yourself and be free of the crowds of tourists that flock elsewhere, be aware that this also means you might find yourself without running water or electricity at some point during your stay. However, what you lack in modern technology, you more than make up for with the pure, unadulterated natural beauty that pervades every corner of this island.Read More
