Kitu Kiblu and Whale shark encounters in the Mafia channel
The channel between Mafia island and Africa is home to a feeding aggregation of whale sharks, the ocean's biggest fish. In the season OCT-FEB their food is on the surface and the whale sharks are easily found. With instruction and guidance we can join their world and swim along side them in awe of their majestic presence.
KituKiblu; Responsible Marine Encounters runs daily excursions from the beginning of October through to the end of February. At Kitu Kiblu, on the west coast of Mafia Island we have full board accommodation and also host an internship program for longer term visitors who would like to learn more about whale sharks and get involved in whale shark tourism, research and conservation
