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.

Kaingo Camp - South Luangwa
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

    Kanana - Okavango Delta
    Operated by Kerr and Downey Safaris, Kanana Camp is well positioned over on the western side of the Okavango Delta. The lodge itself is set on a small island that sits in between two “fingers” of the delta channels and is known as being a predominantly wet camp as opposed to the drier camps of the eastern delta. With great food and stunning views, the camp is very good for those wanting mainly water based activities. We like the camp as it has an intimate feel…it can be a little tricky to find game, however!

    Kanga - Mana Pools
    Located in a very isolated area eep within Mana Pools National Park, Kanga Bush Camp is named after the pan it overlooks. Arguably some of the best game viewing in Mana Pools, the sheer diversity of game that comes to the pan is incredible, with some guests choosing not to leave the main area, but just to sit and watch.

    Kapamba Bush Camp - South Luangwa
    Out of the Bush Camp company this property is a slightly different design with concrete walls as opposed to thatch walls like the other camps but the location is stunning overlooking the Kapamba river and the guiding as ever is great. If you are looking for a typical bush camp old school camp this may not be the one for you but the open fronted rooms are a unique style in the Luangwa valley and the camp location offers excellent game viewing.

    Kasaka River Lodge - Lower Zambezi
    Our family of 4 had the most amazing time at KRL - thank you so much to all the staff for making our stay so special. Our guide was so incredibly well-informed and entertaining on the subject of all the flora and fauna (and even an expert on the night sky). We saw just about everything we hoped to see in Lower Zambezi - lions, zebra, hippos, elephants, crocs, baboons, various species of antelope, buffalo etc etc.  - Jo W

    Kasha Boutique Hotel - Zanzibar, East Coast
    Kasha is great value for money. Although, it lacks a beach like most destinations in this area, it does compromise this well with great facilities in-house. Our experience suggests it needs a bit of time to develop to the standard of some of its competitors, having opened in 2009 and still seems to have a few issues. The rooms are need more outdoor privacy as they are pretty close together without much vegetation or barrier in between. Your private plunge pool is rather exposed.

    Kati Kati Tented Camp - Serengeti, Central
    Although this isn’t our preferred location in the Serengeti with regards to getting away from the crowds, Kati Kati does the best it can, given its area. For value for money you can’t really beat it and it is spot on for the migration from April to mid July and November to the beginning of January. It a perfect value for money tented camp and is great for keeping the cost down.
