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.

Jacana - Okavango Delta

Our View

Jacana is a lovely small camp, set well off the beaten track and prides itself on its magical water-based experiences.  Being inaccessible by vehicle and only by boat you get a real sense of privacy and exclusivity.  For a Wilderness camp, it doesn’t blow your socks off with style but certainly with character.  It offers that relaxed feel that a lot of the more formal camps don’t have. Depending on  the season, it is always worth considering adding to an itinerary.  We love Jacana as it epitomizes the very essence of the Okavango…..this is unpretentious luxury at its best.  And it is absolutely exceptional for birding.

    Jacks - Makgadikgadi Pans

    Our View

    Jacks Camp... if only there were more places in Africa that had this kind of atmosphere, dedication and professionalism!  To say Jacks is amazing is underselling it, this place is absolutely outstanding but the product is unique and it has to be sold correctly.  Many would say this is a connoisseurs product but at the same time it is a product for a first timer…a first timer looking for something different.  The guiding here is very well informed and, in our view, is some of the very best in Africa.  Overall, the Makgadikgadi is not an explosive destination, it is subtle and sophisticated.

    Jao - Okavango Delta
    The third Camp, Jao, was probably-maybe for being the last one- the most special to us. The location by the delta was incredible, but the best there was truly the staff, they made us feel as we were HOME, always so pleasant, nice, helpful and funny. There was something really magical around Jao, we also made the safari day+picnic which was really amazing. - S. Garcia-Sineriz

    Jongomero - Ruaha
    We had an excellent holiday... We were met at all the points and all accommodation was outstanding...   My most favourite place was Jongomero.  I definitely want to go there again in the dry season

    Joys - Samburu
    Really lovely camp, enjoyed the lack of people and sense of isolation. Reminded us a little of camps in Namibia. Had great leopard sightings, including a kill, but just generally really enjoyed the camp. It was really beautiful, camp was gorgeous, facilities excellent.

    Kaingo Camp - South Luangwa

    Our View

    Overlooking the wild Luangwa River deep within the prime safari area of the South Luangwa National Park, Kaingo has a more relaxed and personal feel to it than most camps in Zambia and offers some of the best game viewing opportunities in the area.

    Kakuli Bush Camp - South Luangwa
    Pleasant “classic” small bush camp (5 tents) … again, exactly what we like. And again, tents are comfortable with decent beds, good mossie nets, inside and outside shower, solar hot water. No wifi at all and  mobile connection is like Mchenja a bit hit and miss while driving in the park.  Food was good and plentiful.  Wine & beer good and plentiful.  All meals are “communal” with an option to dine separately if required. Standard of guiding  (we had Philemon) was very good. Activities are games drives and walking.  Again - there is water in the river but insufficient for boating activities.  Given the temperature (by 9.00 getting too hot to walk) we again compromised   by taking a shortish walks (from ~6.00 until ~8:30) then meeting a vehicle for a further couple of hours game drive. Vehicles were similar to Mchenja. Typically we were 2 to a vehicle and 4 on a couple of occasions. We did NOT walk between camps (too hot).Typically evening game drives were followed (after sundowners) by a night drive with spotlight.

    Kalahari - Central Kalahari
    Kalahari Plains was certainly worth visiting, not least to see the rather unusual mix of wildlife and terrain. Whilst much of the terrain was surprisingly green, it is misleading - the lack of reliable surface water appears to restrict what can survive there to mostly the specialists. We saw the black maned lions, and had several unexpected sightings such as Eland. Vast numbers of Oryx! The camp itself was fairly average by Wilderness standards. - A. Marshall
