I will be spending 6-12 months in Mwanza beginning next year to do research and am looking for inexpensive but safe lodgings. I would prefer to be near the city center or on Bugando hill, but am flexible. Because I will be there so long, hotels are not an option, and though I would prefer self-catering or apartment, I am open to guest houses as well. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am having a frustrating time trying to find anything online so if you have email addresses or contact information, that is even better! Also, if anyone else has been in a similar situation and can tell be about how much each month they paid in rent, I would appreciate it!
