Accommodation in Tanzania is as varied as the range of animals. With such an impressive diversity available, we take great care in selecting the accommodation that suits your style, taste and budget. From rustic tented camps to exclusive safari lodges with the character of upmarket hotels. Each type of accommodation offers something unique.
Tented camps suit clients who want to experience a truly authentic safari and immerse themselves in the wilderness. It offers you the change of seeing wildlife close by. The camps are in general smaller and more intimate than lodges. They are set in stunning locations with great game viewing. Don’t let the word ‘tent’ mislead you. Many tented camps are luxurious properties offering the same, or even better, comfort levels as the lodges. You can expect private spacious tents on decking platforms, with comfortable beds, furniture, flush toilets, en-suite bathrooms and sometimes a pool. Often they are more exclusive than lodges, which is the reason they sometimes cost more than a lodge.
There are two types of tented camps: permanent and mobile. The permanent tented camps allows greater infrastructure and facilities, such as larger tents, more comfortable furnishings, flush toilets, 24 hour lighting and more staff. The advantage of mobile tented camps is that it allows guests to follow the wildlife and be as close to animals as possible.
Our adventure camping safaris are for those that feel adventure means roughing it under the stars, but with the security of being well looked after by our experienced guides.
Our adventure camping safaris offer comfortable, small walk-in tents at carefully chosen public bush camp sites, both within and outside the National Parks and Game Reserves. Roll-out mats and pillows are provided, and camp beds on request can be supplied.
You are accompanied by a driver/guide, and by a cook, who will set up the camp and prepare three excellent meals a day, using fresh ingredients prepared on coals, and enjoyed under the vast Africa skies. Camping equipment is transported on your safari vehicle. Luggage space is limited. A backpack or duffel bag of 15 kg per person is allowed. All extras can be stored in our town office free of charge.

For all mobile safaris you can choose to join a group of up to six people, or book a private trip with your own safari vehicle, guide, and cook.
We offer three levels of mobile camping safaris, all of which are fully catered and accompanied by our experienced staff: Luxury, Semi-Luxury, and Adventure camping.
Please note: limited luggage space is available on a mobile camping safari.
Lodges are perfect for travelers who like comfort and ease and to sleep behind four solid walls. During the day you can enjoy game drives out in the bush and in the evenings all the facilities you would find in a hotel, like a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, gift shops and much more. Safari lodges are permanent facilities with solid walls made of brick and stone or other materials. In general lodges are much bigger than tented camps. Of course not all lodges are created equal and they have different levels of comfort and pricing. Most lodges consist of a number of buildings scattered across a plot of land.
You can choose to ‘mix and match’ the different styles of accommodation during your safari.
