It is hard to imagine, but in about 250 AD Rome – then under soldier emperors - dispatched a reconnaissance voyage to the East Coast of Africa, thought to have been seeking ivory, gold and animals, possibly elephants. Some years ago ethno-archaeologist Prof Felix Chami, while staying with us, found Roman beads and coins in caves on Juani Island. Could they date to this time?
What else could Rome be but all gold and deep red ? This is a double room situated close to the the central Bar-Sitting Room and Restaurant and has an uninterrupted view over the pool, Chole Bay, Chole and Juani Islands.
