Please scroll down for a quick visual overview of Ndole Bay Lodge, its grounds and common activities:

The Lodge

Ndole Bay Lodge offers the best accommodation and activities on Lake Tanganyika in Zambia. Our accommodations are built on a fantastically forested slope ending in our own private beach.

All rooms are built mostly from natural materials with thatched roofs and breezy designs.

Discreetly set amongst lush tropical gardens and towering fig trees, the lodge is virtually invisible to the outside world.

Please note that we do not have TV’s at Ndole Bay Lodge but WIFI access can be purchased from bar (free with Deluxe Beachfront rooms).

A large swimming pool with attached kiddie pool near the bar area allows cool dips between serious relaxation.

A large wooden deck is situated right over the Lake providing a shaded recluse strewn with hammocks and sunbeds.

Spend the whole day reading, sun tanning, swimming and snoozing. Steps off the deck lead straight into the crystal clear waters of the lake…don’t forget your mask and snorkel!

There are a few short walks that can be done from the lodge, either a walk into Ndole village or up the hill to get a scenic view of the lake.
