We happened on Shamba Kilole serendipitously when our flight to Mikindani (Mtwara) was cancelled and we had to scramble for an alternative. Fortunately, flights were available to Mafia and Marco was most gracious in accommodating us in one of his suites. The suites are most comfortable and the food exquisitely prepared. Our snorkeling trip organized by the lodge was some of the best we have had anywhere in the world and the private snorkeling guide was a first. We also had a guided walk on the neighboring island - very colorful and interesting. Dinner sitting at the outdoor boat by the pool one night was special. All in all, a great stay. Highly recommended.
