It was an amazing trip to the Lake Duluti. We already came to an end to our 16 days Tanzanian safari on 14/08/2023. Our friend and expert guide Samwel William Mbise suggested us to visit Lake Duluti on the last day. It was another amazing and exciting day. We hired a big boat @50 USD for three people and toured the lake. It was like boating in Amazon wetlands. Saw so many birds and reptiles. Don't worry,there is no crocodiles in the lake. Will visit again with my family. Jayanta Kumar Das,Assam (India)

It was an okay trip. The lake is interesting. The guides were informative. Unfortunately I did not see as many birds as I had hoped to see. We did not do the walk, we were pretty much done after the boat ride.

For all those who are confused about pricing, its TZS 10,000 for the boat ride and TZS 10,000 for the guide (at least for Tanzanians, though it should not be soo much more for foreigners). This price however is only available at the government side of the lake, not the private restaurants or private campsites.

Our afternoon outing to Lake Duluti was better than expected! The activity was arranged through our hotel, Rivertrees Country Inn. We were shuttled to a small canoe rental place at the lake where the equipment was a little rougher than our own canoes that we paddle at home. Our guides, Freddie and Naomi, were quite happy to do all the paddling although being paddlers ourselves we couldn’t just sit in the bow! We were pleasantly surprised by the abundance of bird and reptile life in the crater lake. Our guides were quite knowledgeable and happy to share their wildlife and plant knowledge! We saw many kinds of Kingfishers, including Malachites, cormorants, herons and monitor lizards. It was a delightful and relaxing way to pass the afternoon before departing the next morning for Safari.

Visited the lake in the afternoon for some natural therapy. Rented a canoe, which a guide from the lake joined me on as they didn’t want me to go out on the lake alone (safety first!). We rowed for around Half an hour - the half like option. There is an option to row the full lake. After, I went on a bike ride around the Tengeru area for a couple of hours accompanied by Nelson the guide. It was great! All a very casual affair, which is exactly how I like travelling! Great afternoon. Prices for activities, food and drink are reasonable.

Lake Duluti is a nice lake though not special. What made the walk special was our guide Dickson. He vividly told us all about the animals and plants and answered all our questions. He really took the time and his English is very good. So if you are going to lake Duluti, I would ask for Dickson to be your guide.

Very much enjoyed the beautiful dining area as well as the stylish bedroom and bath. The hotel was clean, well maintained and most comfortable. The staff was very nice and welcoming! I also enjoyed the nature and views while walking around lake Duluti. This is a gem close to Kilimanjaro airport and Arusha! Hats off to the staff there! I will hope to be back soon!

Best way to spend a lazy afternoon canoeing on Lake Nduluti. The place is also very well maintained, Manicured lawns and trees, The canoes were in good shape but the Life Jackets were a bit worn out. We made hilarious ' row your boat' clips with the crew as well.

The lake is not huge but is calm and set amongst trees/forested area.
Many birds around. Saw a hammerkop take a fish and a flamingo was circling over the water. Many weaver birds and a Nile monitor swam by.
Walks around the lake are possible although we just stood by the bank taking in the ambience and wildlife.

For those nature lovers, Lake Duluti reserve is a place to visit. This is a crater lake in Tengeru and its unspoilt and well preserved forests makes for a beautiful visit. There are nature trails for those in such of some activity and a ranger can accompany you on request for an indepth tour. You can hike among the trees in the forest and enjoy the clean and crisp air as well as a touch of nature with the birds especially the water birds and some replies... Watch out for the lizards and snakes though...
There are also some canoes on hire that can give you a better chance of exploring the lake as well as the forest around it..
Once done, you can visit some local restaurants outside the reserve though on the lake's edge and can be a good stop over for a quick meal and drink.
A worth trip in getting in touch with nature as well as just relax.

We went there by the dala dala (minibus) then took a bora bora (motorcycle) so it was completely inexpensive to get there. The lake has a nice view but what is more interesting is the 4.5 km hike. If you are lucky you should see monkeys. We didn't unfortunately. Try to go there 2 to 3 hours before sunset. Do the hike then watch sunset on the lake. You can do the hike on your own or with a guide and a ranger. We did it on our own and it was fine. You can also do some canoeing if you fancy that.
