Balamaga Bed and Breakfast

Your best choice for a relaxed and comfortable stay in Bukoba and enjoy its garden, Lake view, bird’s paradise at the gateway to Mwanza, Rwanda and Uganda

About Us

Our Bed & Breakfast is located in a quite area just South outside Bukoba town – capital of Kagera region – with one of the most beautiful gardens in North-West Tanzania overlooking Lake Victoria.

We established our 10 years back as a special, small, cosy and family-like guesthouse in the natural settings of Bukoba. The house was built by local craftsmen mainly using local materials. We gave special attention to the garden, which has a wealth of (sub)tropical trees and local plants providing a habitat for numerous birds, and a perfect place to relax.

Our guests enjoy staying with us, thrilled by the setting, views, hospitality, accommodation and services.
