When you think of the Tanzanian city of Mwanza, what comes to mind?
Do you think of the fact that Mwanza is Tanzania’s second largest city? Or, perhaps, do you think of fishing and fisheries, the economic sector that Mwanza is known for?
Personally, I think of a peaceful, scenic, lovely city on the shores of Lake Victoria with wonderful rock formations because that’s what it feels like to actually be in Mwanza.
If you are thinking of visiting Mwanza soon and are wondering where to stay when you do, I’ve got a few recommendations for you today.
4 Places to Stay When You Are Visiting Mwanza, Tanzania
1. Malaika Beach Resort
If you will be in Mwanza and want a beautiful place from which to enjoy the best of Lake Victoria’s beauty, then Malaika Beach Resort might be just the place for you.
Malaika has plush well-maintained grounds, with gorgeous views of the lake.
The rooms are beautiful and neat, and even the swimming pool has a great view of the lake (as you can see above).
Malaika Beach Resort is only a 10-minute drive from Mwanza airport and the resort offers complimentary airport transfers.
2. Hotel Tilapia
Why? Because the terrace bar/restaurant with its sensational view of Lake Victoria and the rocks that earn Mwanza its nickname Rock City is so worth it!
3. Adden Palace Hotel
If it’s not important for you to stay on the shores of Lake Victoria when you are in Mwanza, or if budget is a big consideration, then the place you want to stay is Adden Palace Hotel.
Located near Mwanza airport, Adden Palace Hotel is very neat and clean.
The rooms are particularly comfortable—not only the beds but also the good air-conditioning and thick curtains that make the room very dark.
4. Ryan’s Bay Hotel
Ryan’s Bay Hotel is a pleasant modern hotel on the shores of Lake Victoria.
