- Perfect Treehouse for Couples and Families
- Proximity to Exciting Sea-Related Activities
- Unique and Lovely Tea House Design
- Stunning 360-Degree Open Ocean Views
- Run by Entertaining and Interesting Hosts
Nne is a quaint cabin off the Tanzanian coast that has a unique 'tea house' design. Simply put, it is raised on sturdy stilts and has relaxing breezes going in and out of it all day long. And due to its architecture, Nne has stunning 360-degree views of the open ocean as well as the beautiful sunsets on the island. A stay here is sure to be remarkable.
Unlike other treehouses, Nne has a very special design which allows an unadulterated view of the surroundings from its top level. Therefore, even from the bed, the scene is quite stunning.
And though the family that runs it believe in using electricity only when necessary, life never gets boring here. There is so much to do like sailing and snorkeling, watching turtle eggs hatch, and even swimming with whale sharks. What's more, the owners themselves will even take you to check them out.
Also, despite being devoid of technology, Nne is still comfortable enough for guests since it has a cozy bed, a working toilet, and hot showers. In addition, there's always fresh delicious food to be had -- all thanks again its friendly and very accommodating proprietors.
How to get there
Reaching Nne is quite easy. All you have to do is take a plane from virtually anywhere in Tanzania to Mafia Island and drive to Utende where the boat to Chole Mjini is docked. There are regular flights and boats so you won’t have to worry. Note though that since Nne is located on an island that is in the middle of the Mafia Marine Park, you have to pay $10 per person upon entry.
About the area
Nne is in the heart of the Mafia Island Marine Park which has breathtaking reefs and dive sites, thus, SCUBA diving is an activity you could try out anytime you wish to. And since owners Jean and Anne are both PADI Dive Masters and biologists, they can tailor dives specifically for you or your group and personally introduce you to the wonders that the sea around Chole Mjini offers. Besides SCUBA diving, there are hosts of other things you could experience around here as well. You can go snorkeling and turtle hatching; watch and swim with whale sharks; sunbathe and have picnics on the sandbar; island hop and sail into the sunset; or visit the nearby Chole Village and Popo Park. It’s amazing how much you can do even when there’s no electricity, right?
Chole Mjini is a treehouse beach lodge tucked into the small island of Chole centred in the Mafia Island Marine Park Tanzania. Activities are marine based with options for snorkelling, diving, swimming, sailing, SUPs, picnics and walks. Lounging, eating, birdwatching, reading all take you away from the modern world and bring back nature to your soul.

Holiday of a lifetime in the treehouse
3 young children on a remote island with no electricity was a terrifying prospect for us....however it turned out to be the holiday of a lifetime! One that our children talk about all the time. It was really was a humbling experience where you are reminded how the simple things in life are the most important rather than the luxury. The food was amazing, the rooms were awesome. We stayed in the ground floor bungalow which was just fantastic! The staff were genuine and kind to our children...putting up with their noisiness and messy ways! Thank you Anne (Jean we didnt get to meet) - Ava still talks about you! Thank you for the best holiday.
