Bird Watching & Safari Holiday
Tanzania is the jewel of East Africa and famous for its incredible wildlife. Known for its acclaimed national parks, such as the Serengeti, people travel far and wide to see some of the most iconic species in the world! But, you haven’t got to travel far to see some beautiful wildlife.
Nestled on the shore of Lake Victoria, Eagle Lodge is a home away from home which offers the potential for some amazing wildlife encounters. Everywhere you look there is something new and exciting to see. From fish eagles building their nest just a stones throw from the front door, to hyrax, a relative of the elephant, lounging on the rocks. Whether you’re an avid birder or hobbyist photographer, there is something for everyone. Perhaps, if you’re lucky, the resident eagle owl will even make an appearance.
The location of Eagle Lodge is perfect, with all the wildlife dependent on the lake making regular appearances and some unusual, more uncommon species venturing from further inland putting on a show. You will not be disappointed!

Projects: You could also help us continue replanting the hills of Musoma with native Tanzanian trees which not only provide a sustainable income for local people but also restore the habitat that existed on 30 or 40 years ago.
