Wag Hill Lodge and Spa, situated on the southern shores of Lake Victoria, is about a 30-minute drive from the town of Mwanza.
Gently rolling, lush green hills and breathtaking granite rock structures that appear to defy gravity surround this region of the Lake, known for its scenic beauty.
Wag Hill is a boutique eco-friendly Lodge and after recent renovations in 2017, is now able to welcome guests. The Lodge has a warm friendly and inviting atmosphere and is a perfect way to complete a safari.
Wag Hill Lodge and Spa has been constructed at the end of a peninsula jutting out into the Mwanza Gulf with over a kilometer of protected waterfront. The lodge has two natural harbors which have become breeding grounds for some of the largest Tilapia one can find anywhere in the world. The scenery in this part of the lake is unique with breathtaking granite rock structures that appear to defy gravity.
Lake Victoria hosts some of the biggest Nile Perch and Tilapia in the world. The largest Perch caught at the Lodge was 86kg. If you wish to do some serious fishing on the Lake, we offer fishing charters which includes soft drinks & water, fishing rods equipment, life jackets, sonar equipment and GPS.
Maximum of 6 fishermen. Maximum of 4 rods being used at one time. Deep diving lures are used for trawling for Nile Perch.
Wag Hill Lodge and Spa is visually stimulating and has been kept to unobtrusive and uncluttered designs.
The use of raw materials and natural textures keep the rhythms of the natural environment flowing through the structures.
The Centre of the lodge is a beautiful crystal clear swimming pool, perfect for cooling down when relaxing in the powerful Africa sunshine.

Named as one of the ‘Seven New Wonders of the World,’ Serengeti National Park makes the largest national park in Tanzania, and makes a popular destination across the world due to the mighty wildebeest and zebra migration, taking place in May or early June.
The national park is an unspoilt habitant to an array of wild animals and birds, some of which are only found in this part of the world.
A natural habitat to the Big Four, along with a range of birds, reptiles and mammals, Serengeti makes a trip of a lifetime for adventure lovers.
Did you know that the Serengeti is only a 2-hour drive from Mwanza? Wag Hill Lodge & Spa can arrange a day trip from Mwanza, if you are pressed for time, or you spend a few more days to take full advantage of all the national park has to offer.
Packed lunch, or packed breakfast can be arranged on request along with beverages, and a four-wheeler safari vehicle with an experienced guide.
