I booked Balamaga for my wife to stay as a single traveler. The whole experience was most professional, the driver was on time, the guest house staff were most welcoming and made her breakfast professionally so she should travel on-ways. I was very impressed with the communication from this accommodation and along with the beautiful surroundings, comfortable room , my wife felt safe and enjoyed her stay. Thank you for looking after her.

This is the first place we've been to in Tanzania that we feel fits the name "bed and breakfast". I'm sure there are others, but in our three years we haven't come across them. Everything here was top-notch, tasteful, and with excellent attention to detail (which is rare in Tanzania). The room was clean, spacious and homey. The facility is just beautiful and well-constructed. It feels nice when corners were not cut in the tiling and woodwork. The gardens were groomed and gorgeous, with a nice view of the lake. The staff was really friendly. Breakfast was excellent.

It sits up on the hill overlooking the lake. The neighborhood is pleasant, feels safe, and is far from the noise that I would expect closer to town. There are a couple other hotels very close, and the rooms are cheaper. However, I took tours of both and the rooms and facilities - while clean - did not compare. The experience at Balamaga is top-notch. We went out for dinner at the hotel down the road, and it was good. We'd probably do that again, since there is no food available at Balamaga except for the breakfast.

We only stayed overnight, but sometime we'd like to stay for more than one day so we could relax and enjoy the experience more. We can't praise this bed and breakfast enough, and the price is very reasonable.

Set on Balamaga Hill just a few kilometers from Bukoba Town, this unique B&B offers a piece of paradise! Our room was very spacious, airy and bright, impeccable, with a big comfortable bed and a large self-contained bathroom. We especially loved waking up to the sounds of birds in the garden and eating the delicious (fresh fruit and juice, eggs, bread, etc) breakfast out on the veranda overlooking the beautiful grounds. Although the owners were out of town during our stay, we felt very well taken care of by the kind-hearted Adelaida, the guards and the two dogs. If you plan to stay at the Balamaga B&B make sure to spend some time enjoying the absolutely gorgeous gardens. We felt so at peace here - a fantastic way to ring in the new year 2018!
