Where we are
Mafia Island Lodge and Chole Mjini are closed most of April and May for the long rains. Both reopening in June.
One can enjoy the beauty of Mafia even just for a weekend but generally, our guests spend at least 5 to 8 days. If you would like to enjoy all the aquatic activities and excursions, we recommend you stay between 5 and 10 days. If you intend to do a scuba diving course for beginners or advanced, 5 dedicated days are required.
