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.

Tarangire Treetops - Tarangire
Tarangire Treetops is a stunning and quirky property set just to the East of the Tarangire National Park. Owned and operated by the Elewana Company, the lodge is the sister to Migration Camp in the Serengeti and The Manor in Ngorongoro- and equally as luxurious. Tarangire Tree Tops has access to night drives as it just outside the park. A very unique Lodge!

    Tau Pan - Makgadikgadi Pans
    We stayed at Tau Pan for 3 nights and had a most wonderful game viewing experience. The camp staff under the management of Hilda are all extremely friendly, courteous, helpful and skilled. Our guides Mat and Custom were marvelously knowledgeable about all species of mammals, reptiles and birds and extremely sharp-eyed. The accommodation is to a very high standard and extremely comfortable.

    Each lodge has a veranda with views to the waterhole in the distance. The communal areas were well designed, meals were beautifully prepared and presented. Being part of the national game preserve there are strict rules which prevent vehicles leaving the various various tracks through the preserve. This is to protect the fragile habitat. However it was possible to get very good views of the many species. - M Pepper

    Tembo Hotel - Stone Town, Zanzibar
    This hotel has let us down in the past and for that reason we do not like to recommend the place. Some rooms are very good but the reality is that the service standards are not anywhere near the quality of its competitors. More importantly however, it is a dry hotel which for those of us who like that sundowner is nothing short of a nightmare!

    Tena Tena - South Luangwa
    Having seen all the camps in the area and the fact it has been refurbished recently, there is no immediate ‘wow’ factor to Tena Tena when you arrive in camp. Tena Tena work on the experience more than the actual camp. Safari enthusiasts can really appreciate this camp with its great guiding and passion for the Luangwa valley itself which is infectious.

    The Bay Hotel - Cape Town
    The Bay Hotel is a luxury hotel set in the heart of Camps Bay. Although the setting and the facilities are impressive, the atmosphere is not. The beach club ensures that a young, pretentious Cape Town crowd are permanently in residence.

    The Hide - Hwange
    The Hide has consistently been voted one of the “Best Tented Safari Camp in Zimbabwe”, and in our view it remains one of the best lodges in Hwange. It is also one of the few lodges actually inside the National Park, with just 10 tents, it’s small and intimate and now beautifully renovated.
