Gallu Beach Hotel (Ukerewe Island)

Can you please tell me if accommodation is still available at Gallu Beach Hotel on Ukerewe Island?
I've tried checking through the link on your website
( and it is not working. If so, how much does it cost per person?
Thank you so much for your help.



Dear Kate,

Thanks for your mail - concerning Ukerewe Island and Gallu Beach Hotel.

Gallu Beach Hotel was some years back managed by Mama Felister, but she lost the tender and the hotel is now Monarch Beach Resort. As far as I remenber is the rate about 35,000/= Tanzania shilling per night. (About 35 US$)

However, Mama Felister is still running a hotel - a very basic, but OK one. I have been there in 2006 and the rate was at that time 10,000/= Tanzania shilling per night. (About 10 US$).

Mrs. Felister Bwire
