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.

Savuti - Linyanti
Botswana - both the Chitabi and Savuti Wilderness Safari camps are first rate and pretty luxurious. The staff and service at both camps were outstanding although I would rate the staff at Chitabi somewhat higher. They seemed a bit more at ease and confident. But both were great and no complaints at all. At Chitabi, they brought hot water to the room when they woke us in the morning and we could make coffee or chocolate in the room while getting ready. They did not do so at Savuti and they should. It's a nice touch particularly on cold mornings.
Game viewing was better at Chitabi - it's easier to see animals and they seemed more plentiful. We saw lions, a cheetah, 2 leopards, wild dogs with pups, hyenas and pretty much everything else.
We did have some good sightings at Savuti - several herds of elephant coming to the channel to drink in the late morning. At least 100 elephants and the other guests thought many more than that. We also saw 3 leopards (2 with kills) and a huge troop of baboons. Late afternoon game drives were closer to camp and not productive. The mopani scrub around the camp doesn't make for good viewing and there just were not many animals on the other side of the channel adjacent to the camp.

    Sayari Camp - Serengeti, North
    We loved all the places you recommended, particularly Sayari Camp. The timing was incredible-- there were hardly any tourists and we got to see everything from rhinos to river crossings.

    Seba - Okavango Delta

    Our View

    Once used full time as an elephant research facility, Seba Camp sits on a beautiful little lake. Predominantly now used for safari, the camp still offers clients a chance to mingle with the researchers who are working in the area. Alongside this, with access to good game viewing and the water of the lake, Seba is a fantastic option for families and couples alike. Our preferred camp in the Abu concession, Seba is a good option for those wanting wilderness rather than game abundance.

    Selinda - Selinda

    Our View

    Selinda is part the Great Plains Conservation Group who have some other fantastic camps in the area and operate an incredible service.  Although their camps are really luxurious, they are also extremely relaxed.  You decide what you want to do - if you want to get up and go for a game drive at 0900 instead of 0530, you can. The area is brilliant, especially since the channels are filling up with water again making the game in the area fantastic.  Huge herds of elephant push through in the dry months from May to October.

    Selinda Explorers - Selinda

    Our View

    There's a saying that small things come in little packages... Selinda Explorers Camp in no exception! With only 3 tents plus a 2 bedroom family tent transports you back to the bygone era of Livingstone and Selous, both of whom wandered right through the area in which the camp is situated. The area is a prime predator habitat, with fantastic lion, leopard, cheetah and wild dog. Good densities of giraffe, buffalo (in the dry season) and all the antelope – including even roan and sable and recently spotted eland – are possible sightings.

    Jongomero and Siwandu were nothing short of paradise. Beautiful settings, unimaginably friendly staff, delicious food (and lots of it) and awesome game viewing. I must also add that Mark at Ras Kutani did a fantastic job of making Christmas special for us.We particular liked how jongo, Siwandu and Ras K were all distinct in style and made efforts to add little personalized touches. We have both travelled far and wide but can honestly say that the level of service (and enjoyment) was the best either of us have ever experienced. - R Badenoch

    Serena was a really great Camp! We loved it… we went to the Serengeti last year to see the migration and the game here in Selous doesn’t have the same numbers but it feels really wild and like you really are in the middle of nowhere. We saw no other vehicles at all on our second day which was amazing, it was just us and the wilderness. We stalked a group of 4 lions all afternoon as they prowled around. The sundowners out on the boat are amazing too, one of the most romantic things I think we did on our honeymoon.

    Serena Dar es Salaam - Dar es Salaam
    Dar es Salaam does not offer that much and therefore a hotel with all the mod cons in close proximity to the town centre (and golf course) is a very welcome break from the town’s somewhat hectic and lively atmosphere. The restaurant, Tradewinds, is one of the best in the city and a great place for a supper when staying in Dar es Salaam.

    It is formerly known as the Royal Palm.

    Serengeti Serena - Serengeti, Central
    This is a beautiful hotel that has a very personal feel to it (as good as a big hotel can go) and a great location in the park.  It has the edge on other hotels of its size, as the small huts allow for a real sense of privacy and feeling of being out in the bush.  It is a perfect place to spend a few days year round, but particularly during the migration months of May through to July.  If the more authentic option is something you are looking for we would recommend the mobile tented camps first, such as Dunia, but for the those wanting pools and for groups of children it is a good choice.
