Chole Mjini is a castaway tree house lodge located in the center of the Mafia Island Marine Park.
With only seven tree houses, carefully placed and designed, privacy is assured. Open to the elements, with the king-size bed the throne-like centerpiece, each thatched platform is reached via sandy paths that lead through the natural vegetation. All have views of the sea; some are close enough to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the tide trickling back through the mangrove roots. Most tree houses have a second level to accommodate children.
Every tree house has its own private bathing area, located below in the house "garden" - a slightly tamed area within the natural vegetation - in which the open-air shower as well as the closed composting toilet is situated. Water is always piping hot, thanks to the ingenuous kerosene-heating method
