“An area of unsurpassed beauty” … David Livingstone.

 More than 100 years later, that description of Lake Tanganyika still holds true. Africa’s most magnificent stretch of water, crystal clear, calm, warm, mysterious and very, very deep.

Lake Tanganyika Zambia Accommodation Hotel supporting Conservation Lake Tanganyika

To promote and preserve the biodiversity of Lake Tanganyika for the sustainable benefit of its inhabitants through a partnership with the community and the government of Zambia.

Ndole Bay Lodge supports Conservation Lake Tanganyika in Nsumbu National Park.

Conservation Lake Tanganyika is a non profit organisation created in 2012 by concerned stakeholders in the Southern Part of the Lake. We firmly believe that that development and poverty reduction should go hand in hand with biodiversity conservation of the Lake, these goals are mutually beneficial. Integral to the way forward are protected areas that provide hotspots of diveristy, breeding areas for commercial fish species and intact forests to feed clean waters into the lake to ensure its continued health and productivity.

Swim for Nsumbu & Golf for Nsumbu Events

Each year CLT hosts two events to raise awareness and funds for operations. The Swim for Nsumbu is usually in May and is a fun relay over long distance (35kms +-). Held on Lake Tanganyika at Ndole Bay Lodge, swimmers are encouraged to get sponsored for donation.

Golf For Nsumbu in normally held later in the year and is a team event for prizes held in the copperbelt of Zambia.

Come with us on a tour to Kala Bay,
Nsumbu National Park

Our Kala Bay cruise and walk is our most popular activity into Nsumbu National Park. This is because its great for animal sightings, namely elephants, hippos, warthogs, antelopes and various birds, as well as the gorgeous landscapes and calm reflective waters in the bay. This is always done late afternoon so that visitors can view animals when they are more active and to enjoy the liquid blue and pink metal sunset as we travel home.It is where you will find the huge rippling sand dunes that tower over the bay which are great to climb to the top as you will get fantastic views of both sides of the bay.
Here the peninsula is at its thinnest so you can see the lake at both sides of the dune.  You can also easily see the tracks of all different types of animals that have passed through the sandy corridor throughout the last few hours, the wide printed ovals of elephants, the double prongs of the puku, bush bucks and tiny blue duikers as well as cats such as civets, jennets and the odd leopard.

We start off from Ndole Bay Lodge at 2:30pm with our guide, it takes about 45 minutes to reach Kala Bay and there is plenty to see along the way.......
