A popular activity for our guests is the sunset cruise, departing at 4:30pm and ending as the sun sets (approx 1.5 hours). The boat used is normally our wooden dhow- L.V Sokonto, but depends on client numbers. There are 2 routes:
Sunset Drinks Cruise:This trip is north of Ndole Bay alongside pebble fishing villages. You may see some wooden dhows being made is this is where the boat builders reside and if the weather permits you will see the golden sun setting behind the mountains.
Nsumbu Island and Fish Cages Cruise: This cruise travels east towards the town of Nsumbu and takes you past Mpende Fisheries bream cages and around Nsumbu Island, an old slaving island. You may also see some hippos in the Nsumbu Bay area. This cruise can be done in the day or as our alternate route for the sunset cruise.
Ndole Bay Lodge is the first and only fully registered PADI scuba diving facility in Zambia. It provides something new and exciting at any level. The reef right in front of Ndole Bay offers some of the best snorkelling on the lake. Other adventure activities include tubing, kayaking, water skiing, wake boarding and kite surfing.
