Explore the vibrant reefs of Chole Bay, where the diving highlight is undoubtedly the annual whale shark aggregation where small males can be seen feeding in the channel.

Spend your week at Mafia Island Lodge, a small resort with a relaxed atmosphere. The lodge sits amidst palm trees on a beachfront location, along the shores of Chole Bay in the heart of a marine park.

This sleepy backwater on the Swahili coast offers great value and is an ideal winter escape. The waters of Chole Bay are home to vibrant and varied marine life. Expect turtles and possibly whale shark encounters at this time of year. It's also great for snorkellers. Diving on the outside of the bay there are plenty of vibrant walls and reefs to explore.
