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.

Kanana - Okavango Delta

Our View

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

    Our View

    Located in a very isolated area deep within the South Eastern region of Mana Pools National Park, Kanga Bush Camp is named after the pan it overlooks. Offering arguably some of the best game viewing in Mana Pools during the dry season, the sheer diversity of game that comes to the pan is incredible. This is the definition of the armchair safari with many guests choosing not to leave the main area. By sitting and observing the wildlife comes to you.

    Kapamba Bush Camp - South Luangwa

    Our View

    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.

    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.
