Fodor's Expert Review Kungwe Beach Lodge

Mahale Mountains National Park, Mahale Mountains National Park, Kigoma, Tanzania

On the same stretch of the lakeshore as Greystoke, Kungwe is the only other alternative for chimp trekking in Mahale Park. Although it might not be exactly on par with its neighbors, you'll enjoy the same sunset and lake views, just with different degrees of luxury and service. Raised up off the ground on wooden decks with beautiful hardwood floors, Kungwe's tents have four-poster beds layered with mosquito nets and soft linens. A writing desk and African-inspired furnishings complete the overall tented safari look. The outside verandas are perfect for a lazy restful day after the long journey getting to one of the more remote parks in Tanzania.

PROS

  • cheaper prices with fantastic lake views

CONS

  • similar long travel distances to its neighbor Greystoke
  • nonalcoholic drinks can be limited
