"The whale watching experience rates as one of my top wildlife experiences of all time... Unbelievable!"




Humpback whales migrate past Mafia every year from their feeding grounds in Antarctica to the warm waters of the Tropics and the Red Sea, where they calve. The best months to see these up to 40 tonne and 15m creatures, sometimes with their calves is between July, and October with peak sightings in Mafia in August. Kitu Kiblu organizes full day outings, which include a lunchtime picnic and snorkel at a remote sand cay, to the South and West of the island where the whales frolic and cavort.
