From Mafia island Marine Park, an unspoiled, noncommercial, timeless island, where local people go about their traditional business as they have done for centuries, to Maziwe island Marine Reserve, which only appears during low tide, Tanzania’s Marine Parks and Reserve are exceptionally rich in their diversity of cultural, coral, fish, bird and plant life.
