Traditionally part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, Pemba is fast becoming a unique destination in its own right. For centuries, Pemba’s clove plantations and spice fields provided the Omani sultanate in Zanzibar with money for trade and military dominance over the surrounding areas.
To this day, the island is still a major spice producer in the archipelago. Visitors flock to Pemba’s shores, dotted with desert islands and throngs of coconut palms, for some of the best diving in the Indian Ocean. The Pemba Channel drops off steeply just off the west coast and the diverse species of marine life and coral are truly exceptional. Because tourism is still in its early stages, a trip to Pemba’s unspoiled shores and pristine waters is the underwater adventure of a lifetime.
We did northen circuit from August 21st to August 28th 2009. It was an amazing experience. Thanks to Bobby Tours, first we met in Milano 2 years ago, and to our guide John, italian speaking.

Doug told us:
It has taken a long time to sort through my 1700 photos I took whilst in Tanzania - most of which I took in the Serengeti, Crater and Manyara areas. Now that I have completed that task I wanted to let you know just how fantastic my trip was on safari with Bobby Tours. I had an amazing time mainly due to our driver Julius who has the eyes of a hawk and can spot the face of a cheetah at 200m in a bush! I had to use binoculars and sure enough, I got to see a cheetah in the wild. We ended up seeing all the big 5 (including rhino in the crater) over the 3 days. The accommodation arranged at the Serena Lodges was awesome, with great views. I have been wanting to go on safari for decades and finally when I do get to go, the journey surpassed all expectations. I have brought back videos and stills of hyena and lion cubs walking past the 4x4 just a few feet away. I must have taken 100+ photos of the giraffes! Many thanks for an amazing experience. All the best Doug
