Chole Mjini is a unique eco-lodge in a stunning destination offering open tree house accommodation and a complete retreat from the pace of modern life. Live with less, experience more with no electricity or running water, no radio or TV, no wireless, no cars, and no sirens. There is just the purity of the natural ebb and flow of African island living. For true adventurers who are looking for a beach holiday with a side of rustic luxury, this is the perfect chance to escape.

Wake up to the bird calls and the haunting call to prayer and as dawn floods your tree house and the light breeze billows your mosquito net enjoy your morning cup of tea or coffee, which was winched up to your tree house in a basket. During the day, take advantage of one of the largest variety of included excursions from snorkeling and dhow sailing to sandbar trips and sunset cruises. You may simply take the opportunity to relax, read a book, and watch the world go by from your swinging hammock under the shade of a frangipani tree.

After experiencing the ingenious private outdoor showers, unwind with one of the island cocktails while watching the nightly migration of the native fruit bats. Lit by hurricane lamps and a canopy of stars, enjoy either a convivial communal dinner with your fellow guests or a romantic dinner in various authentic locations around the lodge. Go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean set against the still of the African night and the thoughts of the lazy day to follow.


An African Yogi representative will meet you either at the airport or ferry terminal and accompany you on the transfer to Chole Minji Lodge.

You will have time to settle in and relax and familiarise yourself with your new surroundings.

At 6 p.m., there will be a welcome ceremony, followed by dinner at 7 p.m. You will finish the day with a meditation at 9 p.m.

Allow yourself to follow the invisible line as every morning you will receive the plan for the day, filled with relaxation and adventure in equal measures. Besides yoga classes that will challenge you to reach new depths, there will be sandbank picnics, sunset sails, village walks, and snorkelling.
