Chole Mjini is one of the most original small lodges that we know in East Africa. 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 to the local community. Built among 19th century ruins, it's all quite Indiana Jones: the ultimate eco-lodge, built before the term became so commonplace.

Our view of Chole Mjini Lodge

Chole Mjini is the perfect environmentally sound getaway and it has a wonderful community atmosphere that comes from genuine engagement with its neighbours on the island. This is a high-quality lodge, that pragmatically eschews many of the bells and whistles of modern hotels that we so often take for granted. That means it won't be for everyone, but it makes it very distinctive, and we think it's all the better for it.
