Hotel Restaurant Tanganyika

Our hotel and restaurant is situated on Lake Tanganyika only 2km from the centre of Bujumbura. The hotel and restaurant has a cozy atmosphere and is enjoyed by many loyal patrons from the Burundian capital as well as expats and foreigners visiting Bujumbura for business.

The fabulous architectural style dating from 1950 fits perfectly with excellent Belgian and French cuisine, breathtaking views of the lake, all complimented by an impressive wine cellar and a wide selection of Belgian beers.

The "Tanganyika"  is a great venue for functions and is regularly booked for weddings, large corporate events and even royal visits - the last one being on July 1, 2012, when Princess Mathilde and Prince Philippe of Belgium visited us. Contact us for venue hire prices.

  • If you can have 'comfort' foods then you must be able to have 'comfort' restaurants. Restaurant Tanganyika is just that - a wide and diverse menu, unhurried but efficient service, well prepared and delicious food. Really very good...
