Pole Pole is located in the Chole Bay area, near Utende village on the southeast coast of the Mafia Island Marine Park. It lies on the beach, within a tropical garden overlooking a spectacular view of the Mafia Archipelago and the Indian Ocean. The Mafia Archipelago and the delta of the Rufiji River form one of the most interesting marine ecosystems and coral reefs in the world. The area has enormous bio diversity and is considered an important habitat for endangered species.
Seven, elegant and spacious, luxury bungalows suites, are set among the coconut palms overlooking the bay. The rooms are furnished with carved antique pieces. Twin and double beds are available and an extra bed can be provided. Two bungalows are ‘family’ type with two rooms separated by the bathroom and a small corridor for privacy. The large private verandahs are furnished with a Zanzibari bed, chairs, table and an armchair. Each bungalow is self-contained – the bathroom is spacious and comfortable. There are two ceiling fans, one on the verandah and one in the bedroom above the bed.
There are different types of activities or excursions: by boat, by 4×4 car or walking and light trekking. The activities in the marine park are scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing and visiting the local villages. Pole Pole organises boat excursions and picnics to isolated islets, sandbanks, or islands every day, according to the tide. The Diving Centre provides PADI Federations’ certificates. The excursions by 4×4 vehicle take you right across the island through villages and changing landscapes up to the northern tip where a lighthouse stands.
