We spent two weeks at Kalambo while doing research at the lake. Kennedy and Becky were incredibly warm and welcoming and were very accommodating when we didn't know how long we would need to stay or how many of us there would be! The lodge itself is beautifully built with many different communal areas to socialise in or find a peaceful spot to read and the sunsets here are stunning. The food was amazing with great variety and eating with the other guests creates a casual and sociable environment. Really hope to get back here in the future!

We visited Kalambo falls for a birthday trip. Overall it was a good trip. We had a bit of delay with boat pickup which frustrated the beginning of the trip . There was some ongoing construction while we were there which made accessing the room a tad inconvenient. Despite the inconveniences , we had a lovely time at Kalambo falls. We visited Sir Percy, did some water skiing and had a sunset cruise. The hosts and staff were accommodating.

I went to Kalambo Falls Lodge for 4 nights/5 days and absolutely loved it! The lodge itself has so much character and charm and different spaces to hang out. The food was excellent...I never ate the same meal twice! Peaceful, beautiful scenery and some nice activities to do in between. The managers Kennedy and Becky are so welcoming and willing to help make your stay enjoyable. If you find yourself up at Lake Tanganyika, I absolutely recommend a stay at Kalambo Falls Lodge.

Dear red_rosiegirl, Thanks a lot for your detailed feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and some of our activities. It’s always amazing to see the variety of small colorful fish that are swimming directly in front of our lodge or to go for a water-skiing adventure.

Kennedy and Becky are the best host you could find. They Lett me feel like home. It's more than a holiday place but a place to recharge and refresh. The place is very beautiful with nice setting. The food is fantastic and fresh. The sunset is breathtaking. I will want to come back.

I really enjoyed staying there, they have nice food, a lot of fish. I most liked the trip to the Kalambo falls, and snorkeling with their equipment in the clear water. What is really cool, is that they pick you up by boat, when you arrive in town, because there is no road, so you really get an undisturbed holiday in the middle of the wilderness, while being provided with everything.

We had a wonderful stay at Kalambo Falls lodge. Hope, the manager, took such good care of us, providing excellent costumer service. The lodge has style, old antiques mixed with african art. The food was delisious. We did the guided hike up to the falls, 4 hours round trip, which is unique with breath-taking sceenery through villages and fields. Great experience!

We did not stay here, but visited the lodge for the day. It has a rocky shore front which is excellent for snorkelling. They are also breeding cichlids here and have a good variety in their ponds for viewing. The Lodge is very ornate with antique furniture and ample space for relaxing by the shore

We’re developing it as a scientific research centre, with contracts with university of Basle, Switzerland and University of Graz, Austria, all exciting with lots of other guests, as we are a Maison D’Autres. We also experiment with traditional African cuisine, fusion, taken to international standards. Remote, special And unique!
