Kalambo Falls Lodge

Lodge in Lake Tanganyika

While it doesn't have a white sandy beach, Kalambo Falls Lodge's waterfront location remains equally spectacular – whether enjoyed from the rooms or lazing on a sunbed. Run by a friendly Zambian-Danish couple, Victoria and Peter, rates include accommodation, activities, food and transfers, making it excellent value. The honeymoon suite in a stone chalet with clawfoot bath is a great option for couples.

It's popular with marine biologists who are here for its onsite cichlid research centre
