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.

    Lake Manyara Serena - Lake Manyara
    Definitely one of the best Serena Hotels, this hotel is without doubt the best of the large hotels in the Manyara area with good views and easy access to the park around 20 minutes drive away. The views really are the reason to come here. While the rooms are beginning to look a little dated as far as the design is concerned (they have attempted to replicate the colours and curves of the local avian population!), the overall feel of the lodge is that it is not actually as large as it is and a drink at the bar is one of the best places in Tanzania! However, for the same price Kirurumu Tented camp is a preferred option, smaller and give you a break from solid brick structure lodges.

    Lake Manyara Tree Lodge - Lake Manyara
    Of all the &Beyond lodges, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is the best kept secret. This is partly due to the fact that anything less than a 2 night stay here is far too short.  The park is also not as well known as it should be; this is one of the best places to see a huge array of birds, both migratory and indigenous, vast numbers of elephant as well as some of the more interesting antelope of Africa, such as klipspringers.  In our view the lodge is actually one of the top 2 or 3 in Tanzania for the levels of service, the wilderness experience (as it is all on its own in the lower regions of the park there are never any other vehicles) and all round luxury.  This is really a special lodge, definitely worth paying a visit to if the budget can stretch!

    Your suggestion of Lake Manze was really excellent. We both absolutely loved it and felt that the open nature of the camp really suited the experience. We were hugely comfortable throughout and felt the four days was good value for money. We loved being some close to everything and being totally immersed in the safari experience. I think, if money were no object we could have stayed there for the whole two weeks.

    Last Word Constantia - Cape Town

    Our View

     
    Tucked right back into the flowering suburbs, The Last Word Constantia is a villa-style hotel with fabulous flowering gardens.

    Last Word Kommetjie - Cape Town

    Our View

    Anyone wishing to explore the more natural joys of Cape Town will welcome the tranquillity of The Last Word, Long Beach at Kommetjie. It is far from the centre of town and menus are simple, but the National Parks and beaches of the peninsula are close at hand, and there is a lot to explore here.

    Lazy Lagoon Island - Tanzania Mainland Coast
    Lazy Lagoon was perfect for us; as I think we discussed, the laidback "bush chic" style might not suit the spa brigade, but we loved it.  The journey out is of course a bit of an experience.

    Le Paradis - Mauritius, West Coast

    Our View

    The larger Beachcomber property in the south-west of the island.  This is a large hotel with underwhelming rooms though this area is wonderful for water sports and golf and the backdrop of Le Morne makes a great and amazing setting.
