Balamaga is a nice B&B on top of a hill overlooking Lake Victoria. Beautiful garden and nice rooms. On the downside, there is no wifi or internet connection (even though guide books say there is) and dinner is difficult (on paper ordering dinner 8 hours in advance should work but we got a blank "no"). You can eat at nearby Kolping hotel but it would be a nice add-on to Balamaga

We - a group of 7 Dutch people - are more or less regular travellers to this region to inspect some children's projects we manage. This is the first time we stayed in Balamaga (9 nights), and it is really a great place to stay. The service is impeccable, and the manager, Ms. Xaveria William is a great cook and hostess; the other staff is friendly and helpful as well. The entire outfit is of western standards, and the garden is a paradise. It is a pity that there is no internet facility. It would be helpful if you have a car at your disposal, for the location is somewhat excentric. Adri J Tijman, Hoenderloo, The Netherlands.

This B&B was recommended to us by friends as a great place to stay on our way from Uganda to Serengetti etc. Bukoba is the starting point of ferries and flights to Mwanza over lake Victoria. Balamaga is located on hill top easy to find, has a great garden with many species of flowers, is very clean, has friendly staff and fantastic views over lake Victoria and is quit affordable. Quite different from the ordinary hotels (and no lake flies). The B&B is only 2 years old and very well decorated. Meals/breakfast very special. Unfortunately we only stayed 3 nights!
