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.

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.

    Our View

    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.

    Our View

    Ngala Tented Camp is one of &Beyond’s Kruger properties, located in the Timbavati Reserve to the West of the Kruger National Park itself. Ngala Tented is the finest of the Ngala properties and comes at a very affordable price compared to the likes of Singita, Royal Malewane and Londolozi. It's no under twleve policy makes it perfect for couples however it is more expensive than the other Ngala properties, but this is no negative - you definitely get what you pay for here.

    Ngong House - Nairobi

    Our View

    Each of the rooms at Ngong House have been beautifully constructed and looked after over the years the house has been open. As with the other hotels in the area, this is a great place to relax for a couple of nights while exploring the sights in and around Nairobi. Great rooms and fantastic service, it does however lack from having no pool.

    Ngorongoro Serena - Ngorongoro Crater
    The Ngorongoro Serena suffers to a certain extent from its rather obvious styling.  The hotel maintains the high standards set by the other hotels in the Serena chain and this is certainly a very good option for people who do not mind sharing the view.  All in all this is a good hotel despite the crowds and the best option on the Crater rim after the Ngorongoro Crater lodge. There is a 2 night minimum stay at the Ngorongoro Serena.

    Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge - Ngorongoro Crater
    Ngorongoro Crater - Sopa Lodge.... We really expected that Sopa would be too "touristy" and crowded for us but it was not. It was a really nice place. We had a room with a great view of the crater and of course our welcome champagne from you. It doesn't get better than that! The room was great and the bed had a hot water bottle in it to keep us toasty at night. Nice touch. We went down to the Crater early (left at 6:15) so we could see the sun rise on the Crater. Beautiful. Wildlife highlights were 2 black rhino, lions including a grants gazelle kill, cheetah, hippo, black backed jackal, zebra, buffalo. crowned crane, vultures, buzzards, kites, our only African hare, hyenas and one very lucky wart hog that did not end up as dinner for the hyenas.

    Nkwali Camp - South Luangwa

    Our View

    Nkwali competes with Norman Carr’s Kapani Lodge for title of the best  value camp in the Mfuwe area of the Luangwa. This area is a great introduction to the Luangwa due to the quality of game viewing on offer. However the camp is not an example of the bushcamp style that the valley is famous for. As a result we often book clients into Nkwali before a few days in bush camps. Overall, a great camp but one to be used in conjunction with somewhere else.
