Matemwe Vacation Packages

From Matemwe, the notable city of Dar es Salaam sits 65 miles to the south.

Are you a beach enthusiast? This area has some beautiful stretches of coastline. Check out Shamiani Island Beach, 40 miles to the northeast, and Jambiani Beach, 40 miles to the southeast.

If you enjoy the great outdoors, check out some of the Matemwe region's nature areas. Prison Island is 20 miles from Matemwe, while Jozani Forest Reserve lies 25 miles away.

Make the trip to Muyuni Beach and experience Mnemba Island and Mapenzi Beach. It's 1 mile from Matemwe, and worth the trip. An additional option is Kendwa. It's 7 miles from Matemwe, and is the home of Mnarani Natural Aquarium and Nungwi Beach.

It's worth making the trip to Chuini, a regional hub approximately 18 miles to the southwest of Matemwe. The area offers a range of visitor attractions, including House of Wonders, Old Fort and Livingstone's House. If that's not enough, some other great places are Darajani Market and Chapwani Island.

Prepare yourself to embark on an adventure through the rich culinary traditions of Zanzibar.

Uncover the secrets of this culinary culture by trying some of the local ingredients. Among the most prized are ugali (maize porridge) and fish.

Any foodie worth their salt should make sure they sample ugali (cornmeal) and vitumbua (rice cakes) before moving on to any other local dishes.

Those who always seem to find some space for dessert can try kashata ( made from coconut and ground nuts).

If beer is what you're after, make your way to a local watering hole and ask the bartender to pull you the region's best. If they know their stuff, you'll be presented with a tusker beer.

Tamamrind nectar is a popular alcohol-free beverage that you can readily enjoy morning or night.

If you're planning to be here on the 26th of April, you should get ready to party. On this day each year, the entire nation comes together to celebrate Union Day.

No one wants to see the end of a vacation. However, we're sure you'll depart this impressive corner of the world with a camera full of photographs and a heart full of memories.

Your closest airport is Zanzibar International Airport, and it is approximately 25 miles to the south.
