Pole Pole was just what we needed after Kilimanjaro and safaris! Peaceful, relaxing setting, friendly and helpful staff, wonderful lodges with great views. We enjoyed snorkeling, and lovely dowh sailing to near by islands for a swim in the blue lagoon and a history lesson on slave trade. Don't miss seeing the hundreds of large fruit bats hanging in the trees of Chole Island just across Chole Bay. I enjoyed a walk with Hassan through the neighboring village, he showed me where and how the local people "make" salt.
