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.

Kwandwe - Other Reserves

Our View

Kwandwe is a 22 000 hectare game reserve two hours’ drive to the north of Port Elizabeth. This is a great malaria free safari option to combine with an itinerary featuring Cape Town and the Garden Route. This is a big 5 game reserve, but is particularly good for viewing the rarer aardwolf and aardvark.

    Kwara - Okavango Delta
    Kwara was a good place to start off.  We were fortunate in having George as our driver/guide - mature, very well informed about all the wildlife and with a good sense of humour.  As there were four of us we mostly went on drives on our own with George and a spotter, although the camp was full.  The rest of the staff were very helpful and friendly.  The accommodation was very adequate and certainly a far cry from our first safari experience in 1985, with electric light, running water and flushing loos now!  The food was fine - although the  Christmas turkey was the size of an average chicken and meant to feed about 20 of us!  Plentiful wine and all sorts of spirits though.

    We enjoyed the dance/singing routine before dinner (twice), which was just as much for the staff's benefit as the punters'.
    There were plenty of animals to see - lots of lion, elephants, giraffe etc. at close range to the camp and, of course, loads of birds.  The river safari was good once they had got the boat working and fortunately the punters at little Kwara (friends of Matthew's) came to our rescue several times when the boat stalled!

    Kwetsani - Okavango Delta

    Our View

    Kwetsani is a magnificent camp, set high up in the trees on an island that looks over the Northern plains of the Jao flats. We really like this camp as it is extremely spacious, has stunning views and great balance between activities. With only 5 rooms, all spread out along the fringes of the island you can be sure to find your escape and privacy here. We love Kwetsani and actually think it is the best camp in this whole concession!

    Kwihala Camp - Ruaha
    At Kwihala lodge the staff did everything for our well feeling and the  food was excellent. Our guide Lorenzo was very professional - he knows how to find and show us the game so we saw so many many  lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, elephants, buffalos and colourful birds.

    Our View

    Sitting atop the escarpment to the North East of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kyambura Gorge Lodge offers a great base from which to explore the National Park or for hiking in the Gorge. It's position gives sweeping views over the vast park below and the gorge to the North - on a clear day the Rwenzori Mountains rise up far in the distance completing the picture of this beautiful corner of Uganda.

    Kyaninga Lodge - Uganda

    Our View

    Tucked away in the beautiful countryside surrounding Kibale Forest, Kyaninga is one of Uganda's best lodges. Just a scenic one hour drive to Kibale Forest for a chimp trek, but there is a lot more to it than that. Numerous beautiful walks nad hikes can be done straight from the lodge and it overlooks a stunning Crater Lake perfect for a swim, a kayak or a paddle board. Focused as much on the local community as they are on providing an exceptional stay in Uganda, Kyaninga is a gem.

    L'Archipel - Praslin

    Our View

    One of the better mid range hotels on Praslin - it is a close call between L'Archipel and La Reserve.  L'Archipel has a reasonable beach though is close to the famous beach at Anse Lazio.  Nice but simple rooms stretched over the extensive gardens and great food.

    Lagoon - Kwando
    This was our favourite camp! The location was great, the guide and tracker were very nice and we had some great sightings (Matt and ..  ). It was great to spend our last days in Botswana with these wonderful people. In Lagoon camp we had the family room and 1 double room. Having the additional double room was not really necessary because the family room could easily have fitted all 5 of us . The campmanager told us that this family room can be booked for 5 people. This is probably good to know for you because families can save some money this way. - R Blom

    Lake Duluti Lodge is one of the more expensive properties in the Arusha area which is ideal for a stay at the start of your safari in the north of Tanzania. Some of the rooms have views onto Lake Duluti itself, there are also small walks in the grounds around the lakes which are well worth enjoying. There are a number of hotels in the area, while Onsea House is one of our favourites due to its good price we find that Lake Duluti is one of our most luxurious options in the area.
