1 Day Mafia Blue Safari Adventure

1 Day Mafia Blue Safari Adventure

This short tour leads holiday makers to Mafia Island, a must-see jewel set quietly in the azure Indian Ocean and is about 40 minutes’ flight from Dar es Salaam. The Island is marked by verdant rainforests, dense grasslands and giant baobab trees in addition to beautiful birds especially sunbirds, primates (bush babies) and indigenous butterflies that call the forests home.

Sailing dhows, adventurous activities (big game fishing, beach excursions and scuba diving), turquoise waters, mangrove-fringed sandy beaches and diverse marine life including outstanding Tropical fish species, describe the beautiful Mafia Island.

Itinerary Highlights.

Enjoy early morning breakfast at your hotel or with packed breakfast, transferred to Abeid Amani Karume International Airport for the 45-60 minute direct flight to the verdant Mafia Island. Meet and greet our Safari team on arrival at Mafia Island’s small Airport and they will usher you to the stand-by local boat for the ride to relish the mind-blowing Mafia Blue Safari.

The Mafia Blue Safari provides opportunities of snorkeling at the secluded Mafia Island Marine Park where bush babies, birds and others fauna species occupy the surrounding forest. Next swim alongside the annual whale shark migration, scuba diving with hopes of spotting the rainbow-colored clownfish, gigantic grouper, Octopus, dolphins, sharks and rays and many others.

Enjoy a BBQ lunch between these tours of Mafia and if time allows, you can add other adventures such as watching the Juani’s turtle hatchlings as one of the Island’s blossoming Marine Conservation Projects. Mafia Island is just an exceptional getaway spot. Stop by Utende Village to see the flying foxes, then drive back to Mafia Island Airport for your flight back to Dar es Salaam or Abeid Amani Karume International Airport. This marks the end of our the day trip(Mafia Blue Safari Adventure).
