Speke Bay Lodge is located on the south-eastern shore of the beautiful Lake Victoria.  Named for the famous explorer John Hanning Speke, this lovely lodge looks like a small village, blending in perfectly with its surroundings, and offering comfort and luxury in this tranquil and laid-back corner of the world.

There are eight bungalows at Speke Bay Lodge, all situated on the shores of the lake.  Each is self contained to offer complete privacy to guests.  Under your thatched and well-insulated roof you will find custom-made, solid wood furniture, sleeping area with large lockable cupboard, and a writing table.  The sitting area has large French windows which lead out onto a flower-shaded patio, where your breakfast can be served.  There are well-appointed en suite bathroom facilities with hot water.

The bar, restaurant and lounge at Speke Bay Lodge are all joined by a large terrace overlooking the lake.  There is bar is well stocked and offers a choice of quality new world wines.  The restaurant serves both Tanzanian and international cuisine, created using fresh fish from the lake and vegetable and fruit from local fields.  Breakfast can be enjoyed on your own private terrace, on the restaurant terrace, or in the garden.

Fishing and bird watching are two ever-popular activities at Speke Bay Lodge.  Tilapia, catfish, barbell and cichlids are all there to catch in the waters of Lake Victoria, and equipment can be hired from the lodge.  For bird watching, there is a nest of African Fish Eagle in a tree next to the lounge at Speke Bay Lodge – you can frequently see them skimming the lake’s surface and emerging with a fish!  There is a great variety of other birds which are indigenous to the area – a great chance to spot birds which cannot even be spotted in the Serengeti!  Guided bird walks are offered early morning and late afternoon.
