Mafia Island, situated on the western mainland of Tanzania with the Rufiji River Delta and the expansive Indian Ocean on its sides, boasts an exceptional range of aquatic life comprising both flora and fauna. The horseshoe-shaped bay's tepid and sheltered waters provide an ideal environment for an extensive coral reef, ranging from Tutia in the south to Kifinge (Forbes Bay) in the north, housing an astounding more than 400 fish species. Along the coastline, lush forests of fruit trees, mangroves, baobabs, and palms flourish, providing homes for bushbabies, wild pigs, monkeys, small antelopes, as well as intriguingly small populations of hippos. Additionally, the island attracts diverse tropical birds, completing its remarkable biodiversity.
