One-Off Feature

Chole Mjini is a multiple award winning jungle-island fantasy getaway, tucked away amongst ruins on Chole Island, situated in the middle of the Mafia Island Marine Park, Tanzania. Chole Mjini has 6 tree houses and 1 ground house, with either one or two stories, all with views of the sea surrounding the island. The houses have large “throne-like” beds, a hammock, relaxation area with a bench or couch and open-air showers. Each day begins with a birdsong serenade at dawn and ends with the excited chattering of squabbling fruit bats at sunset. Chole Mjini is perfect for young and old, singles, couples and families who appreciate that nature is the ultimate luxury and want to reawaken their senses.

General Info

Part of the virtually unknown Mafia archipelago that lies south of Zanzibar, Chole is a tiny tropical island located in the largest marine park in East Africa. And on it you will find seven wonderful treehouses, all carefully placed so that privacy is assured. Here there are no roads, no cars, no electricity. Instead you will find star-spangled skies, flickering candles, superb food and the timeless luxuries of space, privacy and peace. Let your cares melt away as you watch the sun set from the rooftop bar before dining within 19th century ruins, and then fall asleep to the sound of the sea.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The waters around the island hold some of the most extraordinary and unspoilt reefs in the world and your trip would not be complete without a scuba diving expedition with the experienced lodge owners. But there’s more than just diving on offer here – try snorkelling, go swimming with whale sharks, watch turtles hatch or go sailing at sunset. You could visit Popo Park, the world’s first park for the conservation of fruit bats, stroll around welcoming Chole village, or explore the atmospheric medieval settlement of Kua. Alternatively you could hike through the forest and swim in a hidden saltwater
