Mafia Island

Usually I do not recommend the hotels. I will make exception for Mafia Island. I recommend Shamba Kilole Lodge: Beautiful rooms, great food and the owners make you feel like at home.

Mafia Island (“Chole Shamba”) is part of the Tanzanian Spice Islands, together with Unguja and Pemba. As one of the six districts of the Pwani Region, Mafia Island is governed from the mainland, not from the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar, of which it has never been considered to be a part.
