"Beautiful place. Very helpful and friendly staff"

Google review -April 2022

Beautiful place. Very helpful and friendly staff. All our dietary requirements were taken care of. Has stunning views. Great place to go snorkelling, diving, kayaking and of course swimming

Some places are beautiful on photos, Ndole Bay Lodge is more beautiful than the photos can tell!

This Zambia’s hidden gem is simply amazing

Sitting on Lake Tanganyika with beautiful breathtaking deep blue water. This was a perfect ultimate getaway for our family. Definitely a sanctuary for tranquillity. The owners are wild life lovers so you will enjoy a tour of the game reserve. The chalets are Eco friendly surrounded by untouched nature.The resort bar and restaurant has a diverse menu that includes international and local dishes. Unwind at shores that offer soft sand beaches. We spent family time swimming in the waves, boating and fishing. Three of my family members went Scuba diving too. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Can’t wait to get back there.

"Super Lodge . Excellent Game Viewing"

July, 2019

Agree with all the positive things others have said. Difficult to get there by road, but 2 hour boat trip from Mpulungu is easy and very pleasant. Being in a remote place is a major bonus! Highlights for us were the excellent chalets, the water skiing and scuba diving and seeing animals in a very natural setting in the Nsumbu National Park. We first saw the wildlife by boat from the lake and then on a walking safari. Noone else there and a pleasant change from the usual commercial game park. Close encounters with elephants, hippos and crocodiles and more. Charming and efficient owners and good food and service.


"A world away from anywhere"

October, 2018

We have just returned from a 4 day stay at Ndole and all agreed that it we loved it. Given we have two young ones - and a limited timeframe to travel in we decided we would charter a flight to nearby Nkamba Airstrip from Ndola. The flight took just under two hours and we were met by Harry. A 45min transfer by boat and we arrived.

Ndole is stunning - it feels like it is set off the sea... the fact you can swim and snorkel in the lake is great as in Zambia this isn’t an option in many places. We enjoyed great hospitality - the food was varied and delicious. The activities were plentiful and as a family with young ones and grandparents there was plenty to keep us all as busy as we wanted to be. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had lovely views of the lake - we welcomed the sunrise every morning and enjoyed a drink on the beach every evening.

The team do a brilliant job of looking after their guests and if it’s a little piece of being in the real Africa you’re after this is definitely a place worth visiting.
