Chole Mjini Lodge

About this Property

Chole Mjini Eco-Lodge is located on the island of Chole, a 15-minute boat ride from the east coast of Mafia Island.

“Chole Mjini is quite simply one of the most unusual and special places that we know. And it is eco-tourism for real… one of the most memorable and fabulous things you will ever do in your life.” – Africa Travel Resource

Chole Mjini was never meant to be a hotel, and it isn’t. It is a castaway fantasy, a jungle island retreat appealing to a specific kind of person; one who appreciates a return to simple luxuries that reawaken the senses, rather than the predictable comforts of room service and air conditioning. As such it produces a wide variety of responses.

Chole Mjini Eco-Lodge offers seven unique, partially open tree houses. The cabins are made locally and offer a beautiful sea view.


Chole Mjini Eco-Lodge consists of seven tree houses; some a little higher and some a little lower in the trees. The rooms have no walls, but due to their hidden location they offer enough privacy. From your bed, you see the trees, the mangroves and, in the distance, the Indian Ocean.

Chole Mjini Eco-Lodge offers the following rooms:

  • Moja Treehouse, king
  • Mbili Treehouse, king
  • Tatu Treehouse, king and twin
  • Nne Treehouse, king
  • Tano Treehouse, king
