Pemba Island

Day 1: Fly to Pemba island

Your tour starts at Dar es Salaam airport. Transfers to the airport are not included. You will fly with Coastal aviation to Pemba Island! Depending on your arrival in Dar es Salaam you can choose to go with the morning or afternoon flight.

Pemba Island has been separated from the mainland of Tanzania and Zanzibar for decades, leaving an untouched and pristine island of great beauty and fertility. The mosaic of forests, swamps, mangroves, hidden beaches and lagoons is scattered with the ruins of mosques and tombs mostly reclaimed by the forest – sites that date back to Arab domination when Pemba Island was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (Oman).

Upon arrival the driver/guide from Manta resort will be waiting to take you to Manta resort on the Northern tip of the island. Elevated and crafted along an idyllic island beach, The Manta Resort offers privacy, romance, adventure and water sports on East Africa’s finest island sanctuary. It is not a traditional 5 star resort but a unique experience!

The coming 3 nights you will sleep in the Standard garden room of the resort. Our standard rooms are open plan makuti thatched rooms situated in our gardens. They all feature a centered king size bed covered by a mosquito net, open plan en-suite bathroom, and a comfortable verandah to relax on.

Day 2 & 3: relaxing and optional activities

The coming two days you can relax on your private deck of the underwater room or go for an optional activity organized by Manta resort.

Scuba diving

The diving around Pemba Island, Zanzibar is nothing else but breathtaking. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world. Pemba, Tanzania is the perfect place to start your dive adventure with one of the healthiest coral reefs in the Indian Ocean, a water temperature averaging at 26ºC and the best visibility of East Africa of 30-40 meters almost every day!

Day 4: Departure

Today is unfortunately your last day with Njoro Tours on Pemba island. The driver/guide of Manta resort will take you to the airfield for your flight back to Dar es Salaam.
The transfer from the airport to Dar es Salaam is not included. Please let us know if you wish us to include one (or more) nights in Dar es Salaam.
This is the end of hopefully a wonderful experience!
