Kungwe Beach Lodge is a solar-powered tented camp that lies on a cove of sun-kissed sand. Its 10 secluded safari tents stand on raised wooden platforms in the forest fringe. From the verandas, the view extends over Lake Tanganyika's waters to the mountains of the Congo. The open-side main mess and lounge allow you to take in the view while relaxing or enjoying your meals. Candlelit dinners are often served on the beach, beside a blazing bonfire. After an active chimpanzee trek or a hike to the waterfalls, you can go fishing or unwind on a scenic boat trip. Guests who fish will have their catch prepared for them. Snorkelling along the coastline, paddling a kayak or just relaxing on a sunbed are equally spellbinding.
Features: 10 tents, boat-shaped combined lounge and dining area under thatched roof, jetty to lake, sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach, nature library.
Room amenities: Four-poster bed under mosquito netting, en suite bathroom with shower, roofed porch with chairs and coffee table.
