The communal areas of Chole Mjini Lodge are set in lush tropical gardens, which border the ruins of the old Chole Town. Six of the rooms are tree-houses, built using local techniques by expert craftsmen and set on platforms high up in giant Baobab trees, which gives breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and lulls you to sleep with the sounds of the lapping waves. The seventh room is a ground house, which is slightly larger and caters for families with small children.
With only seven tree houses, carefully placed and designed, privacy is assured. Open to the elements, with the king-size bed the throne-like centre piece, 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.Treehouse Descriptions
