Chole Mjini is a very special lodge in a beautiful location. It is fairly rustic – its long drop toilets certainly wouldn’t appeal to everyone, – however for those who love the outdoors and are looking for something completely different, this lodge is hard to beat.


Chole Mjini sits on the northern tip of Chole Island in the Mafia Island Marine National Park, just off the south-eastern coast of Tanzania. It is the only lodge on the island and is rather special.


 The lodge lies just outside the ruins of old Chole town and blends in beautifully with the bush, ruins and mangroves. The accommodation is simple but fabulous. Six treehouses are built on platforms high off the ground encircling the trunks of enormous baobab trees. They are made using local techniques and are set high off the ground, giving beautiful views of the Indian Ocean.

All are simply but elegantly furnished with four-poster beds. A compost toilet and open air shower are below at the bottom of the tree. In addition to the treehouses, there is one larger room with flush toilets that has been built on the ground and is suitable for families with young children.
