Pemba Island is situated about 80km from Zanzibar Island (Unguja), directly east of Tanga on the Tanzanian mainland. Pemba is smaller than Unguja but has a hillier landscape, although its highest point is less than 100 metres above sea level.

In ancient times, Pemba was known by Arab sailors as ‘El Huthera’, meaning the Green, on account of her dense and lush vegetation. There are more natural forests and plantations than on Zanzibar island, and Pemba grows more cloves than her bigger sister.

Pemba was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (now Oman) in the 17th century. He was so enchanted by the Spice Islands that he installed himself in Zanzibar and ruled Muscat from there. When the Western

Colonial powers came to East Africa the British forced the Sultanates of Muscat and Zanzibar to separate and then administered the Spice Islands in the name of the Sultan.
