Mwinyi Mmadi Mwinyi


Mwinyi Mmadi Mwinyi is 45 years old and has worked at Chole Mjini Lodge from the beginning, 13 years ago. Before working with Jean and Anne he was a line fisherman - his catch was from Chole Bay, most probably on sites now designated  as "no-take zones"; these sites were put in place by the Mafia Island Marine Park to conserve the snorkel and dive sites. Over the years Mwinyi has tried his hand at everything at the hotel, including helping to build our treehouses but now he works as a boatman. This picture was taken by a guest on a whale-shark excursion - as you can see Mwinyi is just as excited as the guests to snorkel alongside these gentle giants - they never fail to inspire awe and get the adrenalin pumping! Mwinyi's love for the sea and Jean and Anne's commitment to conservation has motivated not only Mwinyi but all our staff to consider the environment as a blessing which should be nurtured and conserved rather than something to be fished and destroyed.  Mafia offers some of the finest snorkelling and diving on Earth - all our guests are blown away by the variety and amount of fish and coral life we have here - and with the help of the Marine Park and ex-fishermen like Mwinyi we can ensure this beauty is conserved for future generations.
