Ndole Bay Lodge does not have self-catering facilities in rooms. We do offer assisted self-catering in non-busy periods or on entire lodge bookings. Otherwise, why not try camping on our beach campsite for those who are completely self-sufficient.

The Bar

The fully stocked bar serves a range of local and international beers, wines and spirits while our signature Ndole cocktails make good times at the wooden bar unforgettable.

Comfortable couches, dart board and other games make festivities a must before retiring to the beach for a moonlit nightcap.

Ice is available for purchase for cool boxes.

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 room stays).

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

The beach features bean bags and hammocks so you can look out over the lake. Please note our deck area is currently operational due to unprecedented high water levels.

Spend the whole day reading, sun tanning, swimming and snoozing. 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.


Ndole Bay has a small gym for those who wish to stay fit during their stay. It has a treadmill, rowing machine, exercise bike, Trojan gym machine and a weight bench.
