There are some cool ways to get active in the outdoors around Pemba Island. Hiking and mountain climbing are two ways thrill seekers here can get their kicks. Specialty tours are an excellent way to experience the places the locals love. Join one of the wildlife safaris, wildlife spotting tours and guided nature walks.
A way to experience the true personality of a place is by visiting the restaurants in the region. Try something off the menu and chat with local residents. Cooks in this part of the world regularly make use of ugali (maize porridge) and fish in their dishes. Why not order ugali (cornmeal) or vitumbua (rice cakes)? Both dishes are a common fare in this area. Tanzania is also the perfect place to enjoy kashata ( made from coconut and ground nuts). The bars in this region nearly always serve tusker beer, so be sure to try one if you love good beer. Have a sample of one of the more popular beverages in the region, namely tamamrind nectar.
There is a wise saying: that it is far better to see something once than to hear about it many times. With its stunning beauty Pemba Island will not disappoint you.
