Pemba Island


Pemba Island

Pemba Island is one of the two largest Islands which form the islands of Zanzibar. Pemba is 864 sq kms in size, located on the north of the main Island of Zanzibar about 80kms. It is about 30 minute’s flight from Zanzibar Airport. Along Pemba Island coast, there are ancient mosques and tombs. Visit Pemba and discover a life you never knew you were missing and change the way you look at the world. There is an unbelievable feeling to go to bed while the fish are surrounding and watching you carefully. You are in an aquarium – for fish to be beholders of man.

Discover A New World Of Pemba.

The diving around Pemba Island, Zanzibar is nothing else but awesome. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world.

Far Away From Civilization You Will Ever Get.

Pemba offers something different from most tropical islands and it’s not about five star luxury hotels but serenity, close encounters with nature and a family of staff you long for, then the Tanzania Adventures might be a right company to take you there.

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 Oman in the 17th century. He loved the Spice Islands and established his court in Zanzibar and ruled Muscat from there.

The Clove Island.

Pemba is still the predominant global producer of cloves yielding around 70% of all the world’s cloves, but now plays its more traditional role of being an island paradise with small inter-island trade. Pemba Island also has a strong reputation as a ‘magic’ island, a centre for ju-ju traditions of medicine and wizardry.

Where Is Everyone?.

How can such a beautiful place be so devoid of visitors? On an island with a population of 300,000 there are rarely more than a couple of dozen foreigners. It is as though the people of Pemba have a secret that they refuse to share. Traveling in Pemba is discovering untouched territory. Villagers are eager to talk to anyone who passes and small children will give you their biggest and white’s smiles as the shout “bye-bye!” as you pass them by. You will be called over in markets by the stallholders to sit you down to try their fruits, waiting patiently for your reaction.

Chake Chake Harbor.

Chake Chake harbour is mainly used for swimming & fishing. When the Western Colonial powers came to East Africa the British forced the Sultanates of Muscat and Zanzibar to separate and then administered the Spice Islands in the name of the Sultan.

I booked a 7 days Machame route ascent to Mt. Kilimanjaro with Serengeti Joy Tours. Everything was fine. Madam Angelica was very responsive on Whatsapp, all went smoothly according to the agreement. My guide, Henry, was perfect as well as all the crew. Food was perfect, there was enough of the water, tent was comfortable, all the team tried hard to make my trip comfortable.

This experience with Serengeti Joy Tours was nothing short of spectacular. Our team was made up of Frank(y) (primary guide), Francis (secondary guide), Shedrack (our chef, Moses (our waiter), and 10 solid porters who worked hard and were delightful to encounter. Frank was an awesome lead guide, always laughing and bringing humor into the mix, even when some times were tough (altitude sickness). He was adaptable and knew how to manage every situation. Both Franky and Francis were very

Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
