Fodor's Review

On a hill overlooking the lake about 2 km (1.2 miles) 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 arranges your excursions for you, and also has all kinds of water-sports equipment for hire. Go snorkeling, fishing, swimming, or just chill out on the private

beach. There are business services and a large pool. No alcohol is sold on-site, but you can buy your own in town and store it in the in-room mini-refrigerator.
