The Jambo is the ideal liveaboard for exploring the wonders of the west and south east coasts of Pemba Island in Zanzibar. Catering for between 10 and 12 guests, the 23 meter liveaboard features a wooden hull, 2 masts and 7 large sails that are impressive when the wind picks up. There is an open plan saloon for guests to makes use of the TV and bar as well as a sundeck and an outdoor dining area. The saloon is able to sleep an additional 2 guests if the boat is privately chartered and the additional sleeping space is required.

Divers can expect a great deal of drift diving around the island of Pemba. During the day, the Jambo is anchored in lagoons that are fringed with mangroves and divers have the chance to explore the stunning drift dives that are available. Snorkeling is also possible in these waters, and for those who are not interested in water sports it is possible to provide spice tours on the mainland island. Some charter guests choose to venture beyond Pemba Island and track the movements of the whale sharks around Kenya’s southern coastline.


There are a total of 5 cabins on the Jambo liveaboard. Each cabin is air-conditioned and is also equipped with fans to stay cool. Cabins are not en-suite but there are 3 bathrooms that offer toilets, hot water showers and complimentary towels.
