Mafia Island Diving 2010

Review submitted by Russell Knight
Review date 20 Oct 2010


In January 2010 a band of enthusiastic volunteers set of for 4-10weeks for the Frontier Tanzania Marine Project, Mafia Island, Tanzania. Based within Mafia Island Marine Park (MIMP) a protected conservation area of this small archipelago in the Inidan Ocean, we learnt over 180 varieties of fish, invertebrates, coral and other ocean organisms, conservation techniques and carried out scientific studies within MIMP. We experienced primative running water, no electricity, basic food & provisions, proper African lifestyle...but it was brilliant...made extra special by the friends we all made and the world class diving! Hopefully this video does some justice into the experience that we all enjoyed!
