Nestled amidst the pristine beauty of Chole Mjini is a tree house resort that’s a world apart from typical luxury accommodations. For the discerning traveler who craves an authentic connection with nature, Chole Mjini offers a serene escape where time seems to stand still.

Each treehouse at Chole Mjini is a labor of love. Crafted by hand with tools of yesteryears, these treehouses are a testament to the traditional craftsmanship of Chole’s inhabitants. With every plank hand-cut, transported by dhow, and meticulously cured, they resonate with the island’s rhythm and pace.

Among these remarkable treehouses stands Saba, a symbol of timeless beauty. Nestled around the vibrant Flamboyant tree, or Delonix regia, Saba is enveloped by ancient ruins, each stone whispering tales of a bygone era. Its popularity, the owner muses, could be rooted in deep-seated beliefs or superstitions, but the treehouse’s undeniable charm is perhaps its biggest draw.

The Saba Treehouse stands out as one of the largest treehouses, offering ample space to comfortably accommodate a family of four. Its teahouse is renowned for its spectacular, uninterrupted 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape, which are especially breathtaking at sunset. This luxurious nature retreat features a spacious sundeck, modern toilet and shower facilities, and airy interiors, creating a perfect blend of comfort and rustic charm. It’s not without its drawbacks, however. Its proximity to the beach, while picturesque, often brings the lively sounds of local fishermen in the early morning hours. In addition, the once serene view of Mafia Island across the water now sparkles with the glow of electricity, resulting in a noticeable decrease in the enchanting firefly activity around Saba’s mangroves.

In conclusion, while Saba Treehouse might not be a perfect fit for those seeking utter seclusion, its character, history, and unmatched views make it a sought-after retreat for many. For those willing to embrace both its quirks and charms, Saba offers an experience that’s as real and raw as the island itself.
