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.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is the value acommodation for viewing gorillas. Set just a 10 minute drive from the Park gate the location is unbeatable, with beautiful views into the Park across the seemingly neverending mountain jungle landscape. Permits and logistics are not cheap when gorilla trekking in Rwanda and accommodation is where you can save. Frankly, it's all about the gorilla experience, Mountain View is no luxurious, but provides a great base for one of the greatest experiences in Africa.

    Msambweni Beach House - Indian Ocean Mainland
    Msambweni House is a relatively new addition to the Kenya coast and is definitely a welcome one! The house itself has a great feel to it with all of the rooms having an open and fresh feel to them. The stretch of beach that they are located on is far enough away from the infamous Diani that it is not impacted by the large numbers of lodges up there and so makes for a great and enjoyable beach stay. The food is also a huge selling point with fresh fish (surprisingly!) being a speciality. This is a great option….subject to availability.

    Muchenje: We were definitely spoilt here since we were the only people in the camp.  The setting is quite spectacular with a fantastic view over the flood plain below and our banda was also set next to a tributary valley to the floodplain down with herds of wildebeest and other herbivores made their way down to the water in the morning.  Apart from the luxary of having the camp to ourselves, we could not have asked for more when on our first morning game drive we had a sighting of a pack of wild dogs taking down a juvenile sable antelope at the bottom of the escarpment underneath the camp.  We also very much enjoyed the boat safari and were lucky enough to see a pair of African Skimmers, including their bizarre feeding pattern using their lower mandible (which is longer than the top one) to skim food out of the water while they were in flight.  And of course all these small details were set in bigger picture of ellies and hippos and crocs   All in all this was a great introduction to the delta area and we were very well looked after - T Pozo

    Mwaleshi Camp - North Luangwa
    Stephen was FANTASTIC.  Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but also a whole lot of fun.  We were so lucky to have met him and have him exclusively - as I said, the whole stay was quite magical in every single instance.  I think that next time, (if we're so lucky), we'll have to visit Tafika, Crocodile and Chicoko - they all sound amazing.

    Mwiba Lodge - Serengeti, South
    Mwiba Lodge is a Singita-level permanent lodge in a private reserve to the south of the Serengeti. The views are beautiful and the design is immaculate. It only opened in 2014 but it already competes with the best of the best.

    Naibor - Masai Mara Reserve
    Naibor camp was just everything wonderful that we could have wanted.  Great, great staff....great game drives with great guide....the current camp director is a young man who will be here this year....his name is Ivan and he had a young intern named Troy working there at the time. As is their custom we had dinner together every night. They were lots of fun and very helpful. There was only one other family in the camp and they chose to eat as a family. Really they did not leave a stone unturned to be meet any need we had and they have a wonderful, beautiful place to do it in. We were very pleased...thank you for reccommending Nairbor.

    Namiri Plains - Serengeti, Central
    5 stars (or 10 stars if I could!). It was wonderful!! We saw lots of cheetahs and even a mom with three small cubs playing with each other very close  in additions to 3-week old lion cubs hiding in the bush very close (I think our guide actually went off road to give us better view many times. I hope he did not get in trouble for that...). On top of that, during all those sightings, we were the only car! So it was really secluded which exactly we came there for. Even though the camp was full, they put only two couples in one car so even though we had to share the car with another couple, it was not bad at all. I liked this camp best. All of the staffs who we interacted with were very nice and professional. Our guide was really good. Attention to details were great as well (e.g., a hot water bottle for a cold morning drive etc.,). A dance performance that staffs gave on one of our dinners was really great. The food was good, the tent was simple but comfortable. The safari cars looked new and all of them were very comfortable. Overall, I felt the entire staff/manager were very well trained and really enjoy what they do, which resulted in great services and memorable stay. If we were to come back to Tanzania, we will most likely use Asilia camps for all of our stays next time.

    Ndutu - Serengeti, South
    Ndutu lodge has everything you need without being over the top.  The lodge is in one of the more secluded areas just outside the Serengeti, in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  We like Ndutu –  it is the only permanent camp in the region (apart from Kusini) and gets the migration from December through to March.  The atmosphere in camp is unpretentious and relaxed, yet frightfully efficient….however, the camp doesn't have its own vehicles and so it's all "drive in" safaris.  This makes it very popular with the bigger companies in Arusha and it gets booked up very far in advance.

    Ngala Safari Lodge is a slightly more economical option than its sister Ngala Tented and substantially less expensive than its Sabi Sands competitors. With 24 rooms, Ngala Safari Lodge is much larger than its neighbours but the size drives down the price and makes this lodge one of the most economical options in the Kruger and its surrounding reserves. This is certainly still a high-end luxury lodge and a great option for saving some cash.
