Accommodation - Chole Mjini - Mafia Island
 
LOCATION:  Chole Mjini is a lodge set in the baobab trees on the island of Chole at the Southern tip of Mafia. A small island off a small island off a small island.

ROOMS & DESCRIPTION: Chole Mijini has eight rooms and these are perched in the baobab trees, set amongst the ruins of an early settlement from the days when Chole held a strategic position on the trade route between the mainland town of Kilwa and Zanzibar.

The rooms are simple and very open to the elements as one would expect from a luxury tree house, but the beds are comfortable and each room has beautiful views. Above all each is unique, some with four poster beds others with a hanging bed. The bathrooms are situated on the ground floor with open air and simple with composting toilets and heated hot water for showering.

RESTAURANT & BAR:
The food is made from local ingredients, freshly caught fish, locally grown vegetables. The style is simple with a distinct local Swahili flavour and all served in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.

OTHER FACILITIES & SERVICES:
Mafia is a very quiet little island but it is worth making a trip to the sleepy capital Kilondoni. It is also fun just to walk around the small island of Chole. Chole Bay is a marine park and there are plenty of wonderful sites for diving and snorkeling. In fact Chole is excellent for both beginner and advanced divers.
