Chole Mjini Lodge


... is located on Mafia Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of southeast Tanzania.

Chole Mjini Lodge is a wonderfully quirky treehouse lodge is tucked away like a pirate's lair, hidden amongst a magical grove of baobab trees on a small island of the same name. It is an extraordinary hand-built and owner-managed place full of character. An unusually intimate and warm experience, a place that people fall in love with. It offers excellent access to the diving and other marine activities in Chole Bay.

The main potential downsides at Chole Mjini Lodge are that there is no beach at the lodge itself (although there are lovely sandbanks nearby), no swimming pool and that the overall experience is quite outdoorsy. It is also relatively expensive.
