North of Zanzibar, Pemba has been famous for centuries for its clove production. Today, the Pemba Channel (2400 feet deep) which separates the island from the continent, has become renowned as Africa’s premier place for deep sea fishing.
Pemba also has pristine reefs and varied fauna including the great white shark and giant turtles. Take an excursion to the primeval forest of Ngezi and walk through the luxuriant vegetation, with its giant trees, ferns and endemic species.
We also suggest a mini bus or motorbike ride along the East coast to visit the archeological sites and to the baobab forest of Micheweni. Do not miss a dhow or pirogue outing to the creeks or small islands and enjoy the veritable feast of lobsters, fish, fruit and spices.
