Chwaka, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast, and Michamvi, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south of Makunduchi are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
When you are ready to venture further afield why not check out the nearest regional city. Zanzibar Town is approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) away and is home to attractions such as Slave Market, Stonetown Beach and Anglican Cathedral. If your itinerary allows consider checking out Livingstone's House, Chumbe Island and Old Fort before you return to Makunduchi.
When you ask the locals their favorite spots around Makunduchi, you'll often be advised to check out Tanzania's fabulous open-air markets.

There are some exciting ways for thrill seekers to experience the great outdoors in and around Makunduchi. Hiking and rock climbing are two ways active visitors can get their thrills.
