Mafia Island has a selection of different lodges, hotels, resorts and accommodation whose numbers seem to be growing steadily over the past few years.

Mafia is a relatively large island off the southern coast of Tanzania.

In 2013 the government started a programme of upgrading the airstrip and road network in the hope of promoting more tourism to this hitherto undisturbed part of the old Swahili Coast.

We are not sure that Mafia is cut out for mainstream tourism, mainly because it does not have the beaches and easy swimming lagoons of nearby Zanzibar.

For now the island remains a relatively sedate, peaceful backwater with limited guests but unlimited charm and peace and quiet.

Bear in mind that most accommodation is clustered around the south of the island, which is convenient for the marine park; indeed many options are within its boundaries, from honeymoon-friendly Pole Pole to mid-range Mafia Lodge.

Alternatively you can stay at Ras Mbisi where the beach is great and you avoid marine park fees, but have a longer journey to get there.

What it does have is the largest marine park in East Africa, which contains some of the finest unbleached coral in the Indian Ocean.

There are also whalesharks in residence year round.

Mafia Island is therefore ideal for active people ... divers, sailors and walkers ... looking for somewhere more off the beaten track.

In the marine park area to the southeast, most of our more outdoorsy guests stay at the remarkable Chole Mjini Lodge with Kinasi Lodge and Pole Pole Lodge offering higher levels of conventional comfort, Shamba Kilole Lodge and Mafia Island Lodge being the best of the lower cost options.

Over on the west coast Ras Mbisi Lodge is pleasantly remote, whilst Butiama Beach offers good value.
