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.

Kaya mawa - Lake Malawi
Although slightly awkward to get to, Kaya Mawa is well worth the effort.  This is a little bit of barefoot heaven.  We are very fond of Ras Kutani, but this is Ras Kutani +++, I would say in a different league, but with the same laid back charm - even more so.  It is an idyllic situation between two lovely beaches with a view over the lake to Mozambique five miles away.  Lake Malawi is crystal clear, full of myriads of small colourful cichlids.  Each cabin is supplied with two sets of snorkels and flippers and there is free sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding.  There is also water skiing and scuba diving, but these must be paid for.
The cabins themselves are delightful, well spread out and private, beautifully and originally designed around rocks, with large decks , comfortable armchairs and sunbeds, and in some cases like ours, with a plunge pool.  The views are stupendous, even from the bed. 
The standards of food and service were quite exceptional.   The chef was Michelle's partner Rich (who we did not actually meet) and although there was not a choice one's personal dietary quirks were always remembered and everything was delicious.   All the staff knew each guest by name, their favourite drinks etc, and thought of every requirement before the guest himself.   Very friendly but never obsequious. 
I have spent rather a lot of space on Kaya Mara, but I don't think you have been there, unlike the other camps, even though we went at your suggestion.  Tell your clients to forget the Caribbean - this is infinitely better!

    Kensington Endoro - Ngorongoro Highlands
    Kensington Endoro is a lodge in the Karatu area ideally located in between the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara making it an ideal location to stay when visiting these two game areas. The lodge is a permanent structure with good views and clean and comfortable accommodation. We normally prefer the Plantation Lodge or Gibbs Farm due to their value but find this lodge a suitable option as well.

    Kichaka - Ruaha
    Kichaka was simply extraordinary - we wished we'd done 7 nights there! Everything was completely prefect. Definitely the highlight. 5* - C Stagg

    Kicheche Mara - Greater Mara
    Kicheche Mara Camp, and its sister camp, the Bush Camp, are both very good examples of what a simple tented safari camp should be. Set in an area that is good for resident game, Kicheche starts to come into its own as the Loita herds move across from the East towards the middle of July. With fantastic game surrounding camp for the following 4 months we find peak season a great time to visit but question the quality of the game viewing at other time of the year.

    Situated in the heart of the Naboisho Conservancy, Kicheche Valley offers one of the best value, luxury tented camp experiences in the Greater Mara. With excellent game viewing, including some of the highest lion densities in the Greater Mara eco-system, this small and intimate camp offers great hospitality, service and excellent guiding. Overall, a trip to Kicheche gives you the recipe for an unforgettable and enthralling safari.

    Kichwa Tembo - Greater Mara
    This is the bigger &Beyond property that lies just next to the infamous Bateleur Tented Camp. Where Bateleur is aimed at the very top end of the market, Kichwa is aimed at less of an expensive price bracket. Featuring a good standard of rooms, the camp is located not far from the entrance to the Mara Reserve. This is without doubt one of the best value options in the whole of East Africa, offering the full andBeyond experience at a fraction of the typical cost.

    Kigali Serena - Rwanda
    Situated in a fantastic central location in Kigali, the Serena is a brilliant base from which to explore the city. Unlike a lot of busy, congested African Capital Cities, Kigali is a peaceful and modern metropolis and a great place to spend some time. Numerous museums, art galleries and restaurants are all worth visiting!

    Kigelia - Ruaha
    Kigelia was lovely too and while we loved it we realised the guiding was a bit mediocre compared to Moli (probably unfair). It was still great though and our guide was good. Excellent food and tents. My wife also got a bit tired of just sitting in the car for 9-10 hours a day but i guess that's par for the course. 4.5*

    Kilindi - Zanzibar, West Coast
    Kilindi was very good – we actually rather liked the beach there, which we had been warned wasn’t very good.  The manager of Kilindi is rather creepy, but everything else was perfect – including our amazingly nice and helpful butler, Deo.

    Kimondo - Serengeti, Mobile
    Kimondo was amazing, the variety and closeness of wildlife was outstanding, from a pride of lions with cubs to the innumerable thousands of wildebeests interspersed throughout with zebra, antelope and other game, it really was paradise and we were well looked after.  Again the food, staff and accommodation was fantastic.
