Isanga Bay Lodge

There are 3 chalets on the beach that have a beach and lake view (people with children love them, because the kids can go early morning and play in the sand without supervision) The 3 rondavels on the other side have no beach, but overlook the rocks with amazing views out to the Lake. These chalets are built with rock and are thatched. The Lodge sleeps only 20 people and all rooms are a couple of minutes away from the beach. Each chalets has an en suite bathroom with hot and cold water shower and toilet. There are no power points, however, we do have a facility to charge phones, lap tops, cameras, etc. We have no TV as we are deep in the bush and besides, you won't need one! The lodge offer bed and breakfast with an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. Our specialty is delicious fresh fish from the lake - Nile perch and Nkupi (Yellow belly, a type of bream). We have an extensive bar with very reasonable prices.

We camped at Isanga Bay. Their are about 5 or 6 different pitches about 50m away from the beach and there is also some shade on the beach if you want to camp there. The place is well run, with hot showers and lights in...More

You can teach the Lodge with a short one hour boat ride from Mpulungu and it is close to the lake access for the dramatic Katambo Falls. The chalets and main lodge are simply beautiful. The grounds are pristine and the beach and views remind...More

Best place ever, especially if you need to retreat from this busy world. The host was welcoming, the view spectacular, breath taking if anything. 😍😍😍😍😍 There's more this place has to offer and it will be even more beautiful with time.

We reached Isangabay by road. It's a hard (but nice) 3-hours trip from Mbala. The welcome by Moorkel and Yolande (managers) was very warm. We parked our car on the beach of theTanganika Lake. May-be one of the most nice places from Zambia. We stayed...More
