Mafia Channel is a stretch of water between the Rufiji River estuary and Mafia Island in Tanzania, Africa. The deltas at the mouth of the Rufiji River extrude towards the island and water is forced through causing constant erosion of the deltas and the island itself.
Location: Mafia Channel Lindi Region, Indian Ocean, Tanzania
