Kigoma Hilltop Hotel Review

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.

    Kigoma Hilltop Hotel Review

    The staff was very helpful and kind. The views from the hotel were beautiful and the food was great. Unfortunately, there were 3 caged African Grey Parrots that were not being cared for properly, in that they weren't allowed out of their cages, which ruined my visit and I would not recommend the hotel for this reason.

    We used Africa Travel Resource (ATR) and was very very pleased with their service from beginning to end and plan to use them again when I go back to Africa someday. Read more
