Day 1: Arrive Pemba Island

Arrive on Pemba Island and transfer to the picturesque grounds of The Manta Resort. Settle in for relaxing evening on this remote, unspoiled island paradise. 

Day 2-3: Explore Pemba Island

  • Hotel
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Arise at your leisure this morning to the sound of the Indian Ocean, making your way to the dining lounge for an appetizing breakfast prepared by the local chef. The next few days are yours to do as you please - choose to relax on the beach with a good book, kayak along the colorful coral reefs, or explore the charming villages. Many travelers will choose to book one of Manta's exciting tours locally, such as deep-sea fishing, scuba diving or watching the sunset at sea. Whether relaxing or exploring, you will soon find yourself detached from the outside world, quickly falling into rhythm of Pemba Island. 

Your second night at Manta Resort is spent in the Underwater Room, encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swim by - sometimes in three or four layers of different species. Enjoy complete privacy and solitude from your private three-story floating suite, catching some sun on the top lounge deck before heading down to your room beneath the sea. 

Day 4: Departure

  • 1 Breakfast
Say goodbye to the friendly staff at Manta Resort and transfer back to Pemba Airport for your return flight home.

  • 1) Both US Dollars and Tanzania Schillings are equally accepted. Most tourist stores and restaurants price items 
    in USD. Therefore, it is not necessary to have Schillings, if travelers bring enough USD.

    2) If travelers do bring USD, bring small bills ($20 $10 $5 $1). Old $100 bills are not accepted and vendors are reluctant to accept new ones.

    3) Travelers can get Schillings if needed, but there are very few ATMS
    Travelers will need to plan ahead with the guide to get cash. It is best to withdraw a large amount at once since there are so few opportunities.

    4) Most stores and restaurants will accept major credit cards, however they will 
    charge you a fee (typically 4-5%).

We are so glad that we chose Adventure Life. The service is top-notch. Everything is well taken care of and we just have to print the documents and go. Franny even gave us timely updates on possible airport strike.
