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.

    Ruckomechi Camp - Mana Pools
    We found Ruckomechi Camp to be one of the most magical places we have ever visited. We loved getting to know the staff and were treated like royalty. It was fun to be able to experience Mana Pools National Park from a car, boat, canoe and by foot.

    Rufiji River Lodge is owned and operated by the prestigious Fox Family, owners of the Ruaha River Lodge, Katavi Wildlife camp and many others. The camp itself is in a lovely location with scenic views of the Rufiji River, but it needs money spent on it. They were going to refurbish it, but have never got round to it, and until it begins to tidy up around the edges, it doesn’t remain as good value as some of it neighbours.

    Sabuk - Laikipia
    Set in a hidden corner of the Laikipia plateau, Sabuk overlooks the Ewaso Nyiro River as it flows through the valley, providing fantastic views from all of the rooms. Owned and managed by Verity Williams, the lodge has a fantastic feeling of being amongst nature and, with activities such as walking safaris, fly camping, camel rides and game driving, it offers something for just about everyone. A very good spot to relax after a few days in the much busier Mara.

    Sabyinyo - Rwanda
    We found Rwanda to be a beautiful country and were absolutely blown away by the Virungas, and, of course, the gorillas. Pictures and stories cannot convey the sense of being close to these magnificent and gentle mammals in their natural setting. The Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge was a great place to stay. The fireplace in our room was used often. We saw the Titus and Sabyinyo groups and absolutely enjoyed our 60 minutes with each. One evening at the lodge, we met a young woman who is the gorilla doctor. that was a treat. Our driver during our stay in Rwanda (Theogin) was great and we highly recommend him to others - Trice

    San Camp - Makgadikgadi Pans
    San Camp is a very special and unique experience; it is not sold for its wildlife focus, (although there is actually quite good game a full days game drive away). San is certainly not a great cat camp but a safari enthusiast can take great pleasure in the general herds and diversity of animals and birds on show, and the guiding, walking and quad biking are superb.

    Sand Rivers - Selous
    Sand Rivers was exceptional because we had a private guide for just the two of us, the opportunity to take a boat trip upriver and do some fishing in addition to the standard game drives was also a nice change.

    Sandibe - Okavango Delta
    We visited Sandibe a month before its re-opening in September 2014 and found a brave but successful redesign of an &Beyond lodge we used to dislike because of its concrete foundations. It is one of the best concessions in Botswana for game and it now has a very good lodge to match.
