WHERE TO STAY IN KIGOMA

AfricanMecca Safaris recommends two hotels in Kigoma based on Hotel Tier ranking system on the basis of location, accommodation, amenities, and service, with special weight given to exclusivity, isolation, and personalization, according to which Kigoma Hilltop Hotel ranks as a Tier 2 deluxe experience, by reason of its superlative location and spacious accommodation, although it caters to a large clientele in a small town area and lacks the personal touch of a safari lodge or camp experience – agreeable to us as guests are not paying top camp or lodge dollars to stay at Kigoma Hilltop. A unique effort at conveying African fauna holiday awareness at the hotel is contributed by a lifelike sable in the foyer and a herd of zebra in the grounds. Its lesser rival, Lake Tanganyika Hotel ranked at Tier 3 value experience, is outwardly more imposing, but with more cramped standard room accommodation and less sophisticated cuisine. There are no Tier 1 luxury or boutique accommodation experiences in Kigoma; however, Lupita Island Resort further south of Lake Tanganyika offers a top notch private lake-island experience close to Kipili Village. Lake Shore Lodge is another affordable varied option offering a beach chalet experience minutes away Kipili Airstrip (read more on when is the best time to visit Kigoma).

  • I booked my safari holiday through AfricanMecca. They were the most helpful company I have ever dealt with and I work within the travel industry. I had the most amazing time. The holiday went as clockwork with no hitches anywhere.
    Shelley Roberts - Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
  • Congratulations, the organisation by AfricanMecca was perfect. As to Mahale we spent 4 memorable days in that beautiful scenery, with plenty of Chimp viewing, a lovable crew and good food. Thanks once again for the top service.
    Danielle and Walter Rohrer - Hoerhausen, Switzerland
  • Dear Raza, We want to thank all the AfricanMecca team and the people who had made possible such an unforgettable honeymoon. Thanks to Nkungwe Beach Lodge (a paradise on earth) for all their attentions in such a remote and beautiful spot.
    Toni & Raquel Salat - Barcelona, Spain
  • I recently returned from a trip to Tanzania with a party of eleven people (Canisius College school group) visiting remote Chimpanzee and Wildlife in Gombe, Mahale, Selous. I am pleased to report that I was entirely satisfied in every respect.
    Dr. Michael Noonan - Professor At Canisius College - New York, United States
  • AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
    Cyril Christo & Marie Wilkinson, Conservation Photographers, Authors & Wildlife Documentary Producers - USA
  • We saw more than 20 chimpanzees including chimps I've read about -- Freud, Faustino, Wilkie... so amazing. We had an absolutely amazing trip in Arusha, Serengeti and Gombe - everything went smooth as silk. Thank you so much Raza
    Tiffany Heitz & Lesley Smith - California, United States
  • We had a wonderful time on our chimpanzee safari in Mahale Mountains National Park. The services were outstanding. The guides were knowledgeable and led us to several very nice viewing opportunities. Asante sana.

EAST AFRICA SAFARI TRIP IDEA FOR KIGOMA IN WESTERN TANZANIA

When visiting Kigoma, we recommend combining it with offbeat parks in Southern and Western Tanzania such as Selous, Ruaha or Katavi ending with a chimpanzee trekking safari at Gombe or Mahale by the relaxing Lake Tanganyika.

You may optionally extend out to Northern Tanzania safari parks such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti (wildebeest migration). End your trip with a Swahili cultural tour and beach holiday in Zanzibar.
