It is hard to believe 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?
Why should I book it?
What else could Rome be but all gold ? Room 8 is near to the Bar and Restaurant and has an excellent view over the pool, Chole Bay and Chole Island.
