Clove plantations, rice fields, hilly terrain, green valleys and palm fringed beaches make it a land of variety and contrasts.

Pemba Island is still the world’s major clove producer, but has now slipped into its more traditional role of being an Island Paradise with small inter-island trade.

Chake wharf is now mainly used for swimming & fishing.

Pemba was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (now Oman) in the 17th century.

He was so enchanted by the Spice Islands that he installed himself in Zanzibar and ruled Muscat from there.

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.

All the while, the Arab dhows would ply the trade winds down from the Arabian Peninsula to
East Africa.

With the winds they would take cloves to India, textiles back to the Arab lands
and silver and wood to the Spice Islands of Unguja and Pemba.

The Dhows have remained a constant throughout the history of Pemba.

To this day they ply the run from Wete to Shimoni in Kenya and, when the winds are favorable they plough through to Northern Mozambique.

Pemba is a magical island.

Unlike Unguja, Pemba is hilly.

Gentle, undulating hills and deep verdant valleys are all covered with a dense cover of clove, coconut and mango plantations.

A more fertile land it is difficult to imagine then Pemba.

But it is not just the landscape that gives Pemba its magical reputation.

For centuries Pemba Island has held a reputation as a center for the juju traditions of medicine and magic.

There certainly is a strange atmosphere on Pemba Island.

How can so beautiful a place be so devoid of visitors ?

On an island with a population of 300,000 there can rarely be more than a couple of dozen foreigners.

It is as if the people of Pemba have a secret that they refuse to let go.

That is not to say that the people here are not friendly.

Traveling in Pemba is like traveling in unknown territory.

In the countryside, villagers are eager to talk to passers-by and small children cry at the sight of a muzungu – (white man)

In town, market stallholders call you over and sit you down to try their different fruits, laughing hysterically at your reaction.

The down side about traveling in Pemba is the lack of infrastructure and facilities.

The visitor simply has to be prepared to ‘rough it’, unless staying at one of only a few decent accommodations.

The only guesthouses on Pemba are at Mkoani, Chake Chake and Wete.

All are very small, modest and with basic facilities.

Food must be bought at the local markets and shops. Generally the only place to eat out is at the local stalls or at one of the few guesthouses.

Transport is limited to a few taxis, private cars and the public bus service.

Beyond this, walking is the only option, unless you have arranged pre-booked transfers.

Giant Bats……..
Chwaka Ruins

Ras Mkumbuu Ruins

BIG GAME FISHING
The big game fishing in the Pemba channel is as good as it gets, with a record breaking catch of a giant travally.

There are no less than 6 varieties of Billfish in the Pemba Channel, huge sharks (Mako, Tiger, Hammerhead to name a few), tuna, large wahoo, King fish, Dorado, barracuda, giant travally plus many others.

Close to shore along the west coast, immediately off Pemba’s beaches, regular catches include rainbow runners, bonito, kingfish, barracuda and wahoo.

In peak Marlin season, the billfish and tunas move right up to the coast line making Pemba very interesting for fishing enthusiasts.

All big game charters must be booked in advance, for a minimum of 3 days.

Costs are about $800 per day, depending on which charter boat is available.

Each boat will fish a maximum of 4 people. We can also prove motor boat or canoe trawling, in a comfortable shaded boat, 2 experienced crews, rods and tackle.

Shopping:
Spices, Kangas, Kitenges, traditional paintings and other local handicrafts crafts are well worth buying.

Food:
Mouth watering seafood delicacies are on offer at local restaurants.
