Chole Mjini is one of the most original small lodges that we know in Tanzania. Jean and Anne de Villiers established and built Chole Mjini with a very clear ideology, which contributes hugely to its atmosphere. It stands on Chole Island, just off the coast of Mafia Island, which is a peaceful and charming hideaway in an area that sees little tourism. The lodge was built to be environmentally sound, and to give real benefits back to the local community – the ultimate 'eco-lodge', built before the term became so commonplace and over-used.

Our view of Chole Mjini Lodge

Chole Mjini can be a perfect place to get away: a quiet and unspoilt spot, yet quite social – with a fantastic community atmosphere. It is a high-quality lodge, although it has deliberately chosen to avoid many of the mod cons that we take for granted – and we think it's all the better for it!
