“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.

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

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.

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.......
