Ndole Bay Lodge is the perfect hideaway, set on the slopes of a forested hill with a beautiful white sandy beach, the lodge is located just on the out skirts of the Nsumbu National Park. Accommodation provided will be in standard en-suite or deluxe chalets, meals will include cooked breakfasts for those not on the water early, otherwise cereals and coffee’s are served at 6:00am and packed breakfasts are packed on board for those heading out early, light lunches are served at the lodge and packed lunches are prepared for fishermen staying out the whole day, a sumptuous three course dinner is provided for everyone at the lodge. On one of the evenings dinner will be a fish braai served on a beach in the National Park.

There are many activities on offer other than just fishing, some of these include snorkeling, scuba diving, nature walks in the Nsumbu National Park, game viewing by boat, cultural visits to nearby villages and visits to a local fish farm. People visit lake Tanganyika from all over the world to come view some of the most popular and beautiful fresh water tropical fish – Tanganyika Cichlids.
