Best of Basecamps: Pole Pole - “Take it easy” in an exclusive eco-resort
Pole Pole, which means “take it easy” or “slowly, slowly” in Swahili, is one of the world’s most exclusive eco-resorts. With an ideal location in the Mafia Island Marine Park of Tanzania and only seven bungalow suites, Pole Pole provides the ultimate in the deserted island (with five star service) experience--the best of both worlds, if you ask me!
This is an ideal basecamp for scuba divers (both novices and experts) to explore the underwater wonders of Mafia Island and its over 400 species of fish. Pole Pole also organizes snorkeling, sailing, and light trekking excursions. Can you picture yourself on the private veranda of your thatched bungalow overlooking the mesmerizing blues of Chloe Bay, surrounded by 821 square kilometers of lush vegetation? Let us know! We are good at making dreams come true!
