Create an itinerary including Mbudya Island
Unwind in the shade of luxuriant greenery on Mbudya Island, an uninhabited island with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Part of a marine reserve, the turquoise waters around the island provide excellent snorkeling opportunities with a great number of colorful fish. Several small hiking trails lead through thick forests, and you can extend your stay at one of the campgrounds on site. There are no hotels or snack bars, but you can have freshly caught fish or lobster grilled on the beach for you. A 25-minute motorboat ride will take you to the island from a local fishing community. Use our Dar es Salaam trip planner to add Mbudya Island and other attractions to your Dar es Salaam vacation plans.
