Lupita Island - Lake Tanganyika

Lupita Island Resort, the ultimate private island resort near Lake Tanganyika, offers unparalleled luxury and comfort to our guests.

There are ten uniquely crafted cottages, which all benefit from breathtaking lake and mountain views seen from their open verandas, making the most of the balmy breezes and memorable sunsets. Dotted amongst a tropical forest of indigenous trees, the property strives to leave as little mark on the natural environment as possible. 

The resort design features undulating roofs thatched from local grasses, and the lakeside of each room is completely open-air, so you can enjoy the lake breeze and soak in your natural surroundings.  As you relax under our refreshing waterfall showers, life’s stresses simply melt away. Each villa includes bathtubs and plunge pools on either the deck or terrace, as well as a bar and large living area, ideal for relaxation or entertaining. 

The Livingstone suite caters for families of up to five, with an additional sleeping area and bathroom as well as the option of private dining. A butler is on hand to help make your stay unforgettable and see to all your everyday needs. 

Our attention to quality and service will surpass guests’ expectations from the moment the flight touches down on our private airstrip.
