Nestled on the shores of Lake Victoria, Papa’s Cafe and Bungalows is a welcome retreat to relax and unwind as you listen to the waves, dine al fresco or explore the 40 acre gardens.

Papa’s Cafe

Farm to table al fresco dining

Papa’s Cafe, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner features a delightful menu of continental dishes as well as Tanzanian cuisine. Fully stocked antique boat bar and beautiful outdoor dining combined with farm fresh ingredients harvested just steps away from the kitchen make meals at Papa’s unforgettable. Enjoy the cafe during your stay in the bungalows or simply stop by for a meal anytime.

Lakeside Bungalows

Each private bungalow is appointed with one of a kind decor and beautiful linens and can comfortably house a small family, with a large king-sized bed on the main floor and two twin beds in the loft.  A spacious, oversized bathroom with a hot shower is the perfect place to refresh after a long safari drive and our lake-side porches allow you to take in the views of Lake Victoria while enjoying your morning coffee and breakfast, served right to your room. Enjoy lunch or dinner at our open air restaurant and boat bar, just steps away from your bungalow.
