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.

Mara Plains - Greater Mara
This is probably the best camp I have ever stayed at! The rooms were drop dead gorgeous with great views of wildlife from the comfort of your own bed! The game was spectacular with great sightings of lion and cheetah and thousands of wildebeest. A truly amazing camp!

    Maramboi Tarangire - Tarangire
    Maramboi Tented Camp has a unique location. Although it sits on the shores of Lake Manyara and enjoys impressive views, the nearest game viewing area is in fact Tarangire. It’s larger than we’d like and it’s not inside the park but it’s an excellent camp at an unbeatable price.

    Mashariki Palace Hotel - Stone Town, Zanzibar
    The new kid on the block in Stone Town, Mashariki Palace Hotel has sought to establish itself at the highest end of Stone Town accommodation options. The rooms are all well-appointed but with high or low ceilings and varying levels of spaciousness, it can be a bit of a lottery. That said, hidden away down an unassuming alley, this 18 room ex-Sultan’s Palace represents a cool and calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of Stone Town.

    Mbalageti Lodge - Serengeti, Western Corridor
    Whilst Mbalageti Lodge is comparatively large compared with many other camps/lodges in the Western Corridor, the quality and location of the lodge (in terms of service, food etc) more than makes of for this fact. All in all Mbalageti Lodge would definitely be one of our favourites within the Western Corridor, but if your budget and taste permits, the smaller more intimate mobile tented camps would be our first recommendation in the area.
