  • Dar es Salaam International Airport , Dar es Salaam domestic terminal , The Mafia Archipelago

    Your flight will arrive at Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam today. After clearing immigration and collecting your luggage, you’ll be met by your driver who will transfer you to the domestic terminal for your light aircraft flight to Mafia Island, one of five islands in the Mafia Archipelago. You’ll spend about 40 minutes in the air before landing on a crescent-shaped splash of green in the middle of the turquoise Indian Ocean. The pace of life is ‘pole pole’ on this tropical little island populated by sleepy fishing and farming villages. The natural vegetation here is tidal mangrove forests and scrubby coastal moorlands rather than sandy beaches, and with few visitors the island remains refreshingly little affected by tourism. There are only a few accommodation options, and you’ll be met by your driver and make your way down sandy paths to your lodge for the evening.
