This was an amazing combination of luxury, adventure, Eco tourism, and social fun. Lounging and relaxing with friends and staff on Lupita, adventure trips to Katavi, and Mahale, diving and swimming in Lake Tanganika followed by sunset cocktails and fabulous meals. The hardest part is saying goodbye to the great friends and spectacular setting.

Exotic as you can get. After a long, hot, dusty, exciting safari, Lupita Island is THE place to lounge, be pampered and remember your experiences in luxury and privacy. Book the chalet with the tub on the balcony if you really want the best!

As beautiful as Fiji yet in the middle of Tanzania. Every lodge is 100% private. The attention to detail was incredible. My daughters and I absolutely loved it and will come back again. I highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for something special and spectacular!

The experience here is otherworldly--- First off, the lake is crystal clear and the water is clean enough to drink--- which I found amazing. The water is fresh, but the fish all look like they belong on a tropical reef. On moonless nights, thousands of villagers pull their hand made dugout boats into the middle of the lake, and fish...

This resort is an ideal location between safaris for someone who craves adventure and a higher end remote experience. The grounds and lodge are gorgeous... looks just like the pictures and the best part is that you look out to one of the largest and cleanest lakes in the world. There are plenty of activities such as snorkling, scuba diving,... More

Aimed at the upmarket tourist who is looking for the exclusivity of a remote private island to relax and be pampered in 5 star luxury. The rooms are beautifully appointed, open suites looking out over Lake Tanganyika towards the mountains of the DRC.
