Pemba – the greener and more quiet sister to Unguja
Pemba, is the sister of its more famous sister Unguja (most often referred to as Zanzibar). It is situated 20 min flight from Zanzibar and Dar Es Salaam, in about 80 km from Tanzania mainland. The love to this island lays in its quiet life and off-the-beaten-track adventures.
Rich birdlife, Ngezi Forest, secluded beaches and mangrove forests make this island well worth a visit. If you are into exploring the underwater world ( Misali Island for instance) this is one of the best, if not THE best, diving spots in the East African Region.
And then there are these Flying Foxes, giant bats hanging around in the trees at Wete.
