Location: Chole Mjini is located on the island of Chole off the Southern tip of Mafia Island.
Accommodation: The lodge consists of only seven treehouses, carefully placed and designed, to ensure privacy. Each thatched platform is reached via sandy paths that lead through the natural vegetation, and features a king-size bed with mosquito net, and own private bathing area located below in the house “garden” – a slightly tamed area within the natural vegetation – in which the open-air shower as well as the closed composting toilet is situated. All have views of the sea and most treehouses have a second level to accommodate children.
Facilities & Services: The cuisine has a strong Swahili influence with delicate yet intense, flavourful spicing, and the judicious use of coconut milk. Fish is freshly caught and delivered daily; vegetables are grown on the island. Other activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming with whale sharks, watching turtle hatch, sandbank sunbathing and picnics, sunset sailing, excursions to Juani Island and other islets, massage, star gazing, strolling around Chole village, or relaxing at the Red Herring bar on the water’s edge with 270º sea views and 100% awesome sunset views.
