Chole Island is a tiny island which lies next to the slightly larger Mafia Island. The area has a fantastic history and there are many old ruins. The village of Chole is fascinating and friendly and visitors can spend many hours wandering around talking to the people and watching the boat builders.
Birdwatching is excellent on Chole Island and very different to the mainland parks. The tidal flats and mangroves are alive with coastal and sea birds and there are many colourful woodland and forest species. An additional wildlife attraction are the huge colonies of Fruit Bats which can be easilly seen on a walk round the village.
