Overlooking the crystal clear waters of Lake Tanganyika, with breathtaking sunsets and stretches of golden, sandy beach, the recently refurbished Kungwe Beach Lodge is the perfect blend of comfort and luxury in a romantic setting. The light, airy and spacious tents are furnished in the traditional safari style with unbeatable sunsets over the mountains of Congo. In the gathering darkness, fishermen’s lanterns light up across the lake, mirroring the stars above.
Candlelit dinners are served either on the beach or in our dining area to the unique sounds of Africa: beetles, crickets and the night calls of chimpanzees. The perfect way to relax after a perfect day!
As well as being famous for chimpanzee tracking, this part of Lake Tanganyika offers some of the best fresh water fishing in Tanzania. Here you can catch Sangara (Nile Perch) and Kuhe (Yellow Belly) to name just a few.
