Nice hotel on the lake Tanganyika next to the international airport of Bujumbura. Here you can have a meeting with Hippopothamuses and crocodiles, be careful with nightwalks on the beach. The hotel is having a nice swimmingpool with a marvelous pooldeck

I stayed at the Club du Lac Tanganyika for a business trip in September 2016. This was my first visit to Burundi and I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The location was favorable in my opinion as it is in a peaceful area but still convenient to the city center and airport. The property is beautiful and being beachfront...

What a beautiful and scenic hotel this is! I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Its about 15 minutes drive from the Airport.

I didn't stay at the hotel but I was here for lunch by the lake. A colleague and I sat facing the calm and beautiful Lac Tanganyika on outside lounge chairs. We had Soma Burundi beer and fish and roasted veggies. Very tasty! Great service.

The hotel lies a little out of Bujumbura (15mins drive), by the airport and on the shores of the Lake. This location is lovely and peaceful, with gorgeous views of the Lake and mountains, a garden full of flowering tress and calling birds. I was on a work trip and appreciated the chance to get out of the city every...

I spent an afternoon here, hanging out on the beach, swimming in the pool, and having drinks and lunch. The beach there is very nice. They have a volleyball net, grassy areas, and shade. Great for swimming in the lake or pool! The pool is beautiful and fairly big, with lanes for doing laps as well an open swim area....

The hotel in Burundi is very welcoming. Unlike some countries (and the global media view) our trip to Burundi has been very quiet and safe. All the people have been friendly and whilst the hotel is not very busy it is well appointed and well run. Nice rooms with mosquito nets. Balcony with lake view and a pleasant bar with...

Burundi isn't really a hot bed of tourism at the moment, so the hotel scene is pretty poor. Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika is one of the top hotels in Bujumbura. The room is - by Western standards - quite poor, but it has charm in being an older hotel. Relative to the other places I've stayed in Bujumbura -...
