Fodor's Expert Review Lake Tanganyika Hotel

Stanley Rd., Kigoma, , Tanzania

One of the largest accommodations atop Kigoma and a popular spot for businesspeople and conferences, this tidy hotel boasts some of the best views in the area. The rolling manicured lawns stretch all around the grounds of the hotel down to the shores of Lake Tangangika with chalet rooms dotted around either side of the main restaurant and pool areas. In-room you can expect all of the amenities you would find in a larger resort—television, air-conditioning, large comfortable beds, desk, and mini-refrigerator. Spend a little extra for rooms with verandas facing the lake. For a spectacular sundowner head down to the bedouin-style tent closest to the shores. Service can be slow, and food is fair, but all-in-all this is a good option for Kiogma.

PROS

  • large swimming pool and wonderful view over the lake

CONS

  • service is lackluster
