Pemba Island

JEKTOURS AND SAFARIS we will organize you to the  northernmost of the two Spice Islands lying off the East African coast and is the world’s major clove producer, although Pemba has now additionally adopted its more traditional role of being in  island paradise with small inter-island trade. Pemba Island is a contrast to Zanzibar with lush valleys studded with paddy fields, twisting roads meandering up and down the hills and the smell of cloves lingering in the air.

The pace of life is relaxed, the island has a bewitching desert island atmosphere and the marine life is exceptional.  Pemba offers enthusiasts an amazing Tanzania diving safari.


Pemba is now listed as one of the top dive spots in the world and diving is still the major attraction for Safari visitors. The warm Indian Ocean waters surrounding Pemba Island are home to thousands of species of tropical fish and exotic marine life. The shallows around the numerous islands of Pemba offer stunning snorkelling in aquamarine waters lush coral gardens which stretch far ahead and then suddenly plunge into the dark blue depths of Pemba’s incredible drop offs. Not only is Pemba renowned for its pristine and unspoilt coral reefs but also for its vertical coral cliffs which plummet to depths of more than 800 metres. Underwater visibility often reaches 40 meters or more.
