Enjoy a 3 night stay at a memorable Tanzanian village home in the heart of Africa. Augustine House is a private, modern European styled house located on the edge of the scenic Kamachumu escarpment, 75 km from Bukoba town in the Kagera region. The house is set in a banana and coffee plantation typical of homes in bahaya culture, with fresh air gently blowing in from Lake Victoria and beautiful streams and waterfalls just a short walk away.
Kamachumu is a beautiful high altitude village in which you will experience calm African village life and times long gone by. You will wake up to the sound of the birds every morning and can interact with the friendly villagers before exploring the ancient sights and traditions of the local area. You will enjoy the fruits of the indigenous avocado, pawpaw, coffee and banana trees surrounding the house as we promise you a relaxing home from home experience like no other.
Visit spectacular waterfalls, historical sites and the museum of traditional architecture. For adventure lovers we also offer challenging hikes through the amazing rock pillars which hold up the Kamachumu escarpment and connect you with the creative imaginations of our ancestors
The area around the village is wonderful for half and full day hiking. We can provide a local guide who can accompany you on your journey (a price to be agreed) or you can hike on your own and be guided by your own sense of adventure!
A full day excursion involves a choice of tailored cultural and nature activities including a home made traditional luncheon prepared with a personal touch.
