A piece of paradise in Africa. Everything was idyllic - the warm, clear water of the lake, white sandy beach, the spacious, beautifully appointed rooms, the food and the people. All this surrounded by 100 year old trees. We will be back for sure!

Great place. Great food. Fantastic hosts who really made the extra effort for the Xmas celebrations. But it is a long way from anywhere. And at that time the mozzies are something fierce: despite wearing repellent we were getting bitten every night.

About
Description
Lake Shore Lodge is an owner-run lodge located on the banks of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania, near the village of Kipili. We wanted to share this incredible place with all sorts of people and so have tried with More our different types of accommodation, to cater for everyone. We have 6 luxury chalets built at the water’s edge, 8 lawn bandas for the more budget traveler and 4 private campsites. With sunny days and star studded nights, your time here at Lake Shore Lodge can be as relaxed or as action-packed as you would like it to be. We offer scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, sunset sundowner cruises, massages, jacuzzi, a yoga deck, quad biking, mountain biking and walks to the monastery, one of the oldest churches in Tanzania. We would love to show you our piece of paradise! Less
