Choosing your accommodation for a dream holiday is by no means an easy feat. Often people are swamped by the multitude of choices on offer, but luckily we are here to help. This page has been designed specifically to help you with your choices. Here we provide you with a comprehensive list of the best camps, lodges and hotels you can visit when booking with us. We highlight the significant differences in accommodation types and what they can offer. Our interactive menu below also allows you to search through each accommodation option, arranged by name, price, location and rating, at your own leisure.

Best Luxury Safari Lodges


With plenty of options to choose from, selecting your safari accommodation isn't easy. Different lodges can offer different experiences depending on what you are after from your holiday. Some lodges will only have small guest occupancy and offer intimate experiences, whereas other camps will cater for larger groups.

Camps can also be mobile meaning that they are not permanent structures and they will relocate depending on the season and where the animals are most likely to be. Due to the accommodation manoeuvring regularly, these camps are normally made up from a number of luxury tents. These tents however, dispel all traditional myths of what may come to mind if you think of camping. Their furnishings are luxurious and all your needs will be met. Their placement is also extra-close to the action and will certainly make you feel more at one with nature. If you have the opportunity to stay in these mobile camps, do it.

Best Beach Hotels


Just like the safari camps, there are many varying options when it comes to accommodation by the beach. Generally the more you pay, the more intimate and luxurious your accommodation will be, however we have options that can cater for all budgets. The beach hotels we offer can either be the base for a perfect romantic getaway or for an ideal adventure and activity filled holiday. 

Best Safari Lodges


It is very hard to rank Africa lodges with one simple measure! Our ranking is subjective and tries to reflect value for money as well as overall quality. Therefore we may award just three stars to certain 'five star' lodges in the hotel, or five stars to some superb, unashamed 'three star' hotels that are great value for money.

Green and Blue - Zanzibar, East Coast
Green & Blue Ocean Beach resort was also excellent. Loved the garden and the flowers, the beach view from the restaurant and infinity pool were all amazing. Food was also excellent and their menu changes everyday and they always have a local dish on the menu, which was fantastic. Enjoyed watching the village life on the beach: the local fishermen bringing back their catch of the day, mending boats, 3-4 cows on the beach being chased by cheerful village children in their colourful dresses, boys playing football, and all different boats passing through. - M Evans

    Grumeti River Camp - Serengeti, Western Corridor

    Located in the western corridor area of the Serengeti, Grumeti River Camp, owned by &Beyond, has some great guiding and is an ideal base from which to experience the migration in June and July.  One of the more luxurious options to stay at in this region of the Serengeti; it is a permanent camp with a small swimming pool and the usual excellent &Beyond service and staff throughout. We highly recommend this camp.

    Guludo - Quirimbas Archipelago
    The newest lodge to open in Mozambique. Guludo is actually on the mainland just North of Pemba and within the Quirimbas National Park. Set on a stunning and unspoilt stretch of the Indian Ocean the 9 spacious tented bandas give panoramic views through the netted walls, creating a feeling of being outside while inside.

    Hemmingways - Indian Ocean Mainland
    This hotel is a very good choice for those with a family or couples who like to be active while on holiday. Being relatively small compared to the goliaths around Mombasa, this hotel has really cornered the resort style hotel market and is also a must visit spot for the big game fishermen between August and April. All in all, it may not be quite suited to the quieter tastes of honeymooners, but the food and the surroundings certainly make it stand out.

    Hideaway of Nungwi - Zanzibar, North Coast
    This is a large resort but its the best, and one of the newest, of the many on Zanzibar. The rooms are surprisingly large and luxurious with views down the hill to the sea. The spa is enormous, the pool is very large and the dive centre has brand new equipment. The buffet, the stadard for all-inclusive guests, is good but Japanese, Indian and Afrcan are available. Most of our clients want something more intimate but if youre looking for a large resort that doesnt break the bank then Hideaway should be your first port of call.

    Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp - Skeleton Coast

    Only accessible by light aircraft, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp is as remote as is gets, occupying the northern-most corner of the private Palmwag concession. Many Namibian camps make you choose between scenery and game viewing but Hoanib offers the best of both worlds with the incredible Skeleton Coast a short flight away and the famous desert-adapted elephant in abundance around the camp. A beautiful camp in a beautiful location.

    Hotel Matlai - Zanzibar, East Coast
    Hotel Matlai is an interesting property. If you’re not bothered by the quality of your beach then Matlai is a cool boutique beach hotel and excellent value. It has just 4 rooms, all right on the beach with unobstructed sea views. The management team have made it their aim to break the mould somewhat, with an small outdoor cinema, boules court, beach volleyball court, and butlers accessible by mobile phones. It’s just a shame about the beach, which is half rock, half sand.

    Hotel Slipway - Hotel Slipway
     Hotel Slipway was a good hotel for our overnight and it helped us adjust to the time zone. The air conditioning worked well and it was clean. We enjoyed a nice seafood dinner at one of their restaurants. It wasn’t as nice as our other hotels but we didn’t have any serious complaints. 4 out of 5!
