Pole Pole is a lovely relaxed beach lodge, set amongst coconut palms and overlooking the calm and sheltered Chole Bay in the Mafia Island Marine Park. The phrase 'pole pole' means 'slowly slowly' in Swahili, and certainly says a lot about the atmosphere here. With only seven thatched bungalows, Pole Pole is both intimate and quiet and offers a perfect beach retreat.

Our view of Pole Pole

Pole Pole is a small, quiet and personal beach lodge that manages an excellent balance – between staying in keeping with its surroundings, yet also creating a feeling of comfort and a relaxed, barefoot style. Expert Africa first came across Pole Pole many years ago, and we've visited many times. Since then it has remained a firm favourite with us and our guests, and on our most recent trip it continued to live up to our expectations!
