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.

Little Governors - Masai Mara Reserve
Little Governors – what can I say. I loved it there. Service was excellent and I loved the hot water bottles in my bed at night. So many animals and our guides were amazing. We so enjoyed the balloon ride and have excellent pictures.

    Our View

    Little Kulala is Wilderness Safaris flagship lodge in Sossusvlei.

Quite simply, the level accommodation here is in a league of its own.

    Little Kwara - Okavango Delta

    Our View

    Little Kwara is currently closed. It is being reconstructed and we will bring you updates once this has been completed.

    Little Kwara is the sister camp to Kwara itself and again, Kwando have come up with the goods!  The main reason we love Kwando is their dedication to the client experience.  They focus so much on the quality of their guides and providing a real safari atmosphere in camp that they have become incredibly well regarded by safari connoisseurs.  The camp is unpretentious, intimate and authentic and the game area, with access to big river safaris.  So Little Kwara does not let you down, carrying all the quality we expect from the Kwando tag.

    Little Mombo - Moremi
    The sequence of the camps…from Royal Livingstone to Kwetsani to Little Mombo to Jack’s was perfect!  Note about Jack’s camp:  we were lucky enough to be able to do their surprise sleep out on the pans!  What an experience…I wasn’t sure about Jack’s camp and was worried it wouldn’t be right.  But we’d seen so much wildlife in Mombo, another camp would have been redundant.  Keeping the sleep out a surprise is a good thing…I’m glad we didn’t know.  Don’t tell people…the surprise is worth it.  And, of course, some can’t do it due to sandstorms, etc.  And you were right:  the kids loved the 4X4s and the meerkats.
     
    The surprise birthday party was incredible:  message written w/beans on the bed when we returned from afternoon outing…champagne for us…handwritten birthday cards…animal prints from an artist
     
    Guides were all knowledgeable, friendly, patient w/kids  (Ronald in Kwetsani…but he’s going off to join his brother’s mobile safari business; Mos in Little Mombo…GREAT!!!!  Excellent w/the kids; Chabba in Jack’s…wonderful wonderful.  Funny, knowledgeable.) - J Lamattina

    Little Ongava - Etosha

    Our View

    Little Ongava takes Etosha accommodations to a completely different level. With only three rooms and the efficient organisation of Wilderness safaris, service here is as personal as it gets: massive rooms with every comfort you could think of come complete with private plunge pools, separate lounges, indoor and outdoor showers and outdoor double beds (sala’s). Couple this with the fact that Little Ongava has the areas most impressive views and you have the finest accommodation in Etosha.

    Little Tubu - Okavango Delta
    This is a truly delightful place to spend a few days. The camp is small with only three rooms for visitors but we enjoyed exclusivity being the only people staying. This meant that the game drives were tailored exactly to our interest. The driver, Broken, has an amazing knowledge of game. And in the case of birdlife had an encyclopaedic knowledge not only of the birds, but of their habitat, their habits, their flight movements, their colourings in juvenile conditions. Highlights were seeing two lionesses with their 8 cubs (on several occasions), a leopard post impala kill devouring the remnants and oblivious to our presence. My wife who is a very keen "birder" was amazed by the abundance of birds. I think we saw nearly everything on her wish list - amounting to over 80 species - only failing to bump into a red bishop bird! The staff were friendly, courteous, always helpful. The food was excellent - not too much but of a very high standard of preparation and presentation. As with holidays of this nature, it wasn't cheap! But Little Tubu Tree was definitely value for money. Our room (tent) had the added perk of having a tree house built into an adjacent tree. It was shaded but high up and an excellent place to spend the afternoons between lunch and the evening drive and to observe the various herds on the plain below. We visited in November just at the beginning of the rain season so the camp was not surrounded by water, but the water holes were abundant and with that came plenty of sightings. A thoroughly memorable visit. - M Pepper

    Little Vumbura - Okavango Delta
    Little Vumbura where we took part in a wild dog hunt, and then later, watched the aftermath of a wild dog kill and a fight with a
    scavenging hyena.   We had a marvellous guide in Little Vumbura too –
    easily the best of the trip.

    Liuwa Plains Camp - Liuwa Plains

    Our View

    This camp has now closed. 

    Described on the Norman Carr Safaris website as ‘simple yet extremely comfortable’, Liuwa Plains rather undersells itself! It is certainly extremely comfortable and although ‘simple’ that’s the last thing that crosses your mind on entering camp, it is a simply stunning bush camp in a fantastic game viewing area.
