On the water

Given its lakeside location you’ll not be surprised to discover we have a host of water based activities to keep you busy. Lake Langano is unique in that it does not harbour bilharzia, unlike most local lakes meaning that you can go swimming without fear. In fact the water of the lake with its high sulphur content is considered to be therapeutic.

We also have a couple of larger boats, 5m & 6m ribs and a 5.7m Boston Whaler that can be used - the only ones in the country. The lake offers some excellent fishing, with a bountiful stock of fish including some enormous carp, catfish and tilapia. Our chefs are more than happy to expertly cook your catch for you. Or if that sounds too sedate you could always go water-skiing…

We’ve a small fleet of kayaks and small Topper sailing boats that guests can hire out to explore the lake, and its beautiful natural environment, at your own pace. Please note that we do not offer kayaking or sailing lessons at this time.

If you'd like to arrive at the lodge by boat, we can pick up from the Kakaroo Lodge near the main road and take you on a scenic trip across Lake Langano.
