BEST TIME TO VISIT MAFIA DURING YOUR COASTAL TRAVELS IN EASTERN TANZANIA
The maximum fluctuations you are likely to see during the seasonal climatic year range from lows of 20 C (68 F) to 25 C (77 F) and highs of 28 C (82 F) to 32 C (90 F). The monsoon ocean breezes wafting in also help to keep the temperatures more or less steady.
Mafia Island has two dry seasons like most of Tanzania, but one of these is the cool, dry season and the other is the humidly hot, dry season. The hot dry season that occurs in January and February typically coincides with the winter months of America and Europe where many AfricanMecca travelers like to visit the islands and coasts of Tanzania in these months to enjoy the warmer climate on their vacation.
The later festive weeks of December also sees like-minded guests arriving with friends and family to spend the holiday season in Mafia and surrounding islands. The cool, dry season from July to October is also a fine time to tour Tanzania, and since most schools are closed for the summer in the west and also coincide with the best times for safari in East Africa, Mafia Island sees increased visitors.
You might also want to take the two wet seasons into consideration when planning your dream trip. The accommodation rates for Mafia Island are slightly discounted during the rainy season. Like the rest of Tanzania, Mafia experiences two wet seasons, the long rains and the short rains. The long showers begin in the onset of March, peaking in April and May, and scattering off by June. These rains result from the Kaskazi tradewinds from the northeast whereas the Kusi tradewinds that blows from the southeast.
However, even in the wet seasons, it does not rain continuously through the day or everyday, and some afternoons are clear with the sun shining brightly. While you could plan your personalized trip to Mafia during the wet seasons, you might have to limit some of your water activities such as angling, diving and snorkeling.
Discerning guests touring Africa prefer to combine safari bush adventures in varied parks and reserves of the continent with some seaside relaxing time on Mafia Island. After reveling in the sights of the avian and terrestrial fauna and also flora too, Mafia offers to complete your wholesome AfricanMecca vacation with sightings of many fascinating marine creatures.

The Zanzibar Stone Town tour guide was superlative. He was outstanding and gave us undivided attention. We felt that was great value and to be escorted round the market place and slave stations was like walking in a living museum.
