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.

Serian Ngare - Greater Mara
Serian in the Mara was great. The entire staff was as helpful as possible. Guides were knowledgeable. I liked that Serian Mara is secluded and away from most of the crowds. The staff was great, as everyone went out of their way to make our adventure special.

    Serian Nkorombo - Greater Mara
    Once an ever moving mobile camp, Nkorombo found such an amazing spot on the Mara River in the Masai Mara reserve that it has taken up permanent residence. It has maintained the intimate and luxurious feel of a mobile camp but boasts year round amazing numbers of black rhino, leopard and lion as well as being perfectly placed for the river crossings of the great migration.

    Serra Cafema - Skeleton Coast

    Located on the Magical Kunene River in the far North of the country Serra Cafema is nestled on the banks of the river itself, the far side being Angola. The area here is outrageously beautiful and the camps location makes best use of the surrounding areas attractions. We would actually go so far as to say that Serra Cafema is not just one of Namibia’s finest camps but is one of the very best camps in the whole of Africa - the scenery here  is absolutely out of this world.

    Seyyida - Stone Town, Zanzibar
    Seyidda is still reasonably new on the scene in Stone Town and has opened a up a great new option.  In comparison to some of the other hotels in its area, which are all a bit tired, Seyyida offers a new, well decorated accommodation.  New hotels can take a while to get up to speed, but during our stay we really enjoyed the hotel but we feel we should give it a little time.

    Shangri-La Hotel - Muscat
    Comprised of three hotels, the Shangri-la is unique luxury destination.  Positioned between the deep turquoise blue water of the hypnotic  sea of Oman contrasting vividly with the majestic mountains that rise behind the resort epitomise the fascination of this amazing destination.

    Shinde - Okavango Delta
     The camp at Shinde was outstanding. The staff was fantastic. The Managers there appear to take all the feedback from their guests and implement their suggestions. The 4WD’s were beautifully equipped with insect spray, tissues and lollies as well as hot water bottles inserted into the car blankets in the morning. Hot water bottles were put into the beds at night time (which happened at all the other camps too except Linyanti Lagoon). Their library was equipped with many animal guide books and maps were on the walls. Sherry was even delivered to the rooms at night time. In addition to this, they served champagne for their sundowner drinks and nothing was a problem to any staff. They thought up fabulous places to set up the most beautiful sundowner drinks with delicious nibbles to accompany. Each location was a wonderful surprise and wonderfully executed. For our last night, they gave us our own private dinner party which was very lovely.

    Shipwreck Lodge - Skeleton Coast
    Namibia’s Skeleton Coast is a place quite like no other in the whole of Africa, and in all honestly, the world. There are not many other better places to base yourself in the eerie isolation of the sandy Namibian Skeleton Coast than in Natural Selection’s quirky and fabulous Shipwreck Lodge.

    Shooting Star - Zanzibar, East Coast
    Now back in Berlin, we just wanted to give feedback for our  unforgettable Christmas safari to Tanzania.  Everything was flawless and highly enjoyable.  All transfers worked perfectly (not to be taken for granted), and all the guides were very knowledgeable, but also very empathetic and focused on what we were looking for.  Truly a superb performance.
     We especially liked the Tree Lodge, Oyster Bay and Shooting Star.  Special thanks to Tom McGail for pointing us to those early on.

    Shumba Camp - Kufue
    We vote Wilderness Safaris' Shumba Camp as Kafue’s best. It's in a great setting and has a real emphasis on the luxury experience. The area is visited by few guests so safaris here are very exclusive and the quality of guiding set very high. The Busanga Plains is famous for its predator concentrations and Shumba is set right in the best area….big game driving here is superb.

    Sindabezi Island Lodge - Livingstone and Victoria Falls
    Sindabezi is a five roomed private island lodge in the centre of the Zambezi River. Owned by Ben Parker, the owner of Tongabezi, this is an old favourite in the office and a great lodge for the client wanting something close to a bush camp in Livingstone. Brilliant for groups wanting to be completely shut off from the rest of the world, but still accessible to getting the best out of the area.
