Mahale Mountains & Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania
Where better to recuperate from an exhausting chimpanzee trek through the Mahale Mountains than a beautifully luxurious lakeside retreat? Tucked away on its own private beach, Kungwe Beach Lodge offers style and tranquillity close by to Lake Tanganyika.
Adorning the edge of Mahale Mountains National Park, each of the 10 safari rooms are clearly inspired by the nearby lakeside villages. Every single room is utterly charming, with thatched roofs and soft yet sophisticated décor. With a raised deck overlooking the sparkling lake, you’ll wake up every morning to a spectacular view.
We love the main deck shaped like a traditional dhow, also home to the lodge’s delicious gourmet restaurant and cosy lounge area. If you fancy a bit more adventure after your life-changing chimpanzee trek, there are plenty of great activities ranging from calm boat safaris, to a leisurely afternoon of freshwater fishing.
