Lua Cheia our eco-friendly tented camp, located at Ras Bweni in the north of Mafia Island on our private beach of over 2 km..…this beautiful location is now yours!

A journey to the north takes the visitor to a completely different part of Mafia that is quite another world of vegetation, beaches and activities.

It is 55 km from Kilindoni (airport) - stretching from Kanga Beach to Bweni Village- takes a 4x4 vehicle and approximately 40’ to get there.

The stunning feature of the location is the nearly 3 km of beach stretching away in both directions, all yours…..the sand is white and pure and one can always swim, despite tidal changes.

Situated on Mafia Island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, the complete isolation from any other tourist facility, or commercial activity of any kind, offers guests solitude, nature and complete relaxation.
We have six large tents under thatched ”bandas” with verandahs leading directly onto the beach.

The site faces north-west and take advantage of the sea breezes during the hot-season as well as the marvelous evening sunsets over the Selous and Rufiji Delta.

Each room is equipped with a separate an en-suite bathroom constructed in concrete block nd equipped with solar-heated water and solar lighting.

There are even fans powered by solar collectors to keep you cool at night!.

We have kept this beautiful place as natural and undisturbed as possible while providing all the necessary comforts.

The bar and dining facilities are located on a tiny neck of land that separates two magnificent beaches.

They are furnished in our own signature (and very simple) style…..the wooden floors of the bar and restaurant, the antique leather and dhow-wood furniture and the soft sand under your tent floors conspire to give the “barefoot” experience we want our guests to enjoy.

We could not possibly call this a “luxury” camp because the tents are not HUGE and there is only ONE wash basin and the furniture was designed by us NOT someone famous, but…….it is THE most amazing place and Lua Cheia takes care of only 12 people at any one time….and we really take care of our guests……..there are no “fantasies” here and no “special effects”..…just a fabulous, real, back-to-nature, simple experience…..nothing else is required

Food and Beverage

Served always – weather permitting - from the barbecue….seafood, chicken, lamb, beef and vegetarian (which we are very good at)….we cook the food off driftwood fires so it is absolutely wonderful (please ask for genuine guest comments to be forwarded)…freshly-cooked food off the charcoal grill is impossible to beat, accompanied by a wide selection of salads and antipasti.

We serve a hearty English breakfast with fresh fruit, fruit juice, home-made yoghurt and granola, cereals, toast, eggs, bacon and anything les you need to either raise or lower your cholesterol and REAL Tanzanian coffee and tea.

In the evening the waiters will take the order for morning tea/coffee service in the rooms. Coffee and tea (and other more serious beverages) are available in the restaurant and bar at all other hours as one of our attentive waiters will be there.

The bar is limited to a few excellent reds and whites and the usual damaging toxins like gin, vodka, whisky, brandy, and anything special if you let us know in advance. All the soft drinks and mixers are available and lots of ICE!

Activities Fishing

The stunning feature of the location is the 2 km of beach stretching away in both directions…..the beaches are littered with millions of shells and beautiful driftwood….the sand is white and pure and one can always swim, despite tidal changes. And the complete isolation from any other tourist facility, fishing village, hustler or any other disturbance of any kind…..solitude, nature, complete relaxation…… We also have kayaks and wind-surfers, game fishing and snorkeling, sailing in local dhows and ngalawas, a forest walk across the island, visit the lighthouse and take a view over Mafia and look for Humpback whales passing…..or take a massage and relax in the pool.
