Flights to Nungwi & More

Flights to Nungwi will take you to beautiful beaches like this one

This post was originally about the 100 most influential women in Africa, but since many of you come to this post searching for “flights to Nungwi, I decided to update this page to include information about that too.

Flights to Nungwi

You cannot fly directly to Nungwi, Zanzibar because Nungwi does not have an airstrip/airport of its own.

Instead, it is served by Zanzibar’s main airport, Abeid Amani Karume International Airport, which is about an hour and a half away from Nungwi by road.

To “fly” to Nungwi, you first have to fly into Zanzibar international airport, then drive for an hour and a half to get to Nungwi.

Taxis between Zanzibar international airport and Nungwi are fairly easily to catch. You can read more about getting taxis in Zanzibar here.

The List


2019 100 MIAW Official List


Speaking about the list, Prince Akpah, Managing Director of Avance Media, notes that the list has a representation of 100 women from 35 African countries who are changing the feminine narrative and challenging the status quo of women on the continent.


He also cites that some of the honorees have expressed interest in offering mentorship opportunities to young women from across the continent through the Be A Girl Mentorship Program, which is being launched to upsurge the impact of the publication.


Be a Girl Program


Avance Media has over the years been engaged in changing the narrative about Africa through rating and ranking publications.


The launch of this initiative is expected not only to celebrate Africans but showcase the individual and collective work of women who are earnestly inspiring the next generation of leaders in Africa.


The 2019 100 Most Influential African Women list features women who occupy eminent leadership positions such as President, Prime Minister, Secretary General, First Lady, Governor, Minister, CEO and Commissioners.


Notable among them are Ethiopia’s President H.E. Sahle-Work Zewde, Liberia’s Vice President H.E. Jewel Taylor, Namibia’s Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Dr. Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, United Nations Deputy Secretary General H.E. Amina J. Mohammed and former presidents H.E. Ellen Sirleaf Johnson and H.E. Catherine Samba-Panza.
