On a hill overlooking the lake about 2 km (1.2 mi) from Kigoma's town center, this hotel makes an ideal base for your chimpanzee trekking. You'll stay in a comfortable no-frills cottage with a/c, a mini-refrigerator, satellite TV, and an en-suite bathroom. What puts the hotel above any other in the area is that it not only arranges your excursions for you, but also has all kinds of water-sports equipment for hire. Go snorkeling, fishing, swimming, or just chill out on
the private beach. There is also a gym, business services, and a large pool. Try delicious Indian food at the restaurant, or stay conventional and stick with Western food. No alcohol is sold, but you can bring your own.
