Tanzania : Lake Tanganyika
Lake Tanganyika is the world’s longest and second deepest lake lying in Tanzania, the DRC, Burundi and Zambia. Part of the Rift Valley it is about 3 million years old and is one of the most biologically rich habitats home to over 500 fish species. Here you can enjoy lots of activities including, snorkelling, diving, fishing, kayaking and sailing as well as discovering the many islands and surrounding mountains for the incredible scenery and unique wildlife including the chimpanzees of Mahale Mountains.
Lupita Island Lodge is the ultimate private island getaway with just 13 en-suite cottages dotted amongst the forest of the island with incredible mountain or lake views. Each cottage has its own large living area, well stocked bar and sun decks with a plunge pool, the bathrooms all have waterfall showers and a large outside bath tub. Similar to the lodges on Lake Malawi it is a sort of freshwater beach destination where you can explore the surrounding water and islands by kayaks, snorkel in the crystal clear waters to see the colourful fish or simply relax on the sandy white beaches or enjoy a massage in the spa.
