The Ndole Bay Lodge Team
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.
Ndole Bay Lodge supports the Nsumbu Tanganyika Conservation Project in Nsumbu National Park.
In 2017 the Nsumbu Tanganyika Conservation Project (NTCP) was established under the Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS) to focus on securing the Nsumbu Tanganyika Ecosystem:a core wildlife area of 4,000km2 including NNP, Tondwa Game Management Area (GMA) and parts of Kaputa GMA and open areas. Immediate law enforcement support to government though the Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) focused on protecting the remnant elephant population and a vast undisturbed wilderness.
Intense andcomprehensive protected area management support is required if we are to be ableto aid the recovery of iconic and threated species such as lion and black rhinoand increase the security of a globally significant ecosystem able topositively contribute to human wellbeing and sustainability.
Ndole Bay hosts the Swim for Nsumbu, an annual event that takes place in April on Lake Tanganyika, with funds raised from swimmers going to the Nsumbu Tanganyika Conservation Project (NTCP).
