Untouched Coral Reefs and the Heady Fragrance of Cloves
Part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, lushly vegetated Pemba Island once went by the name of ‘al Khuthera,’ meaning “Green Island” and aptly describing both its rolling hills and clear waters. Pemba is an undiscovered island paradise, where the heady fragrance of cloves perfumes the air in the fall, and just off-shore an untouched coral reef with steep drop-offs, clear visibility and abundant marine life draws divers from around the world. Visit a spice farm and learn how this tiny island produces 70% of the world’s cloves. Or, take a guided walk through the Ngezi Rainforest, home to vervet and colobus monkeys, and a variety of endemic bird species.
