Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For Chole Mjini Lodge

Located on the isle of Chole and off the southeastern coast of Mafia Island is Chole Mjini Lodge. This labor of love by the coastal azure waters of the Indian Ocean is the making of Jean and Anne de Villiers, created after a long, challenging journey. Built entirely by hand by the local craftsmen using naturally available materials, this mid-range eco-accommodation is a dream come true for them. You will be pleased to find that by choosing Chole Mjini for your stay during your unique vacation of Mafia Island (why visit it), the part proceeds the lodge earns will be shared for the advancement of local developmental projects. This castaway accommodation is located in groves of lush baobab trees and mangroves at a verdant spot beside the ocean. Gentle breezes and the calls of colorful birds mingled with the sounds of the waves whispering to the sands will accompany you throughout your stay. The lodge has a collection of 7 treehouses that are ideal for the intrepid AfricanMecca traveler. Choose from houses that have numerical Kiswahili names and specifications like Moja, Mbili, Tatu, Nne, Tano, Sita and Saba. The Moja is built over one level in an ancient baobab tree while the Mbili comprises of two bedrooms over two levels. Tatu is a single unit with two distinct houses each with a separate bedroom linked by a stairway. Nne is by a baobab and has views of the sweeping sea. Tano incorporates the remains of an old tea house while Sita, sited on the ground, is well-suited for families with young children traveling in East Africa. Saba is suitable for families or guests of 4 looking for more roomy living spaces. Have your meals at the lodge's restaurant and order drinks at the bar.

The days of your Tanzania dream holiday will be filled with many moments of wondrous delights as you explore the underwater realms of the coral gardens. Enjoy the burst of color lighted up by the mild sunlight filtering through the pristine waters. Experience wonder and awe as you swim beside the whale sharks that can be best found from October to March. These enormous creatures can weigh up to 15 tons and grow up to 12 meters, but they are so gentle, feeding on the plankton as they swim along. Also, revel in one of nature's incredible wonders of the green turtles. You can watch as the tiny hatchlings emerge from their nests in the sandy beach and make their way to the ocean to begin yet another circle of life. Spend a happy afternoon on the Funguni Sandbank that appears for around 6 hours every day. Even as you enjoy your picnic, you will be able to view many marine creatures like starfish, crabs, and seahorses among others as they wait in the little pools for the tide to come back. You could also visit the ruins of Kua on Juani Island or Chole Village for a lesson in dhow building. Add a trip to Popo Park on your Mafia tour itinerary to view the fruit bats. Your preferred tours can be booked via your AfricanMecca travel planner. End another amazing day aboard a dhow and watch the glorious sunsets on the Indian Ocean.
