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.

    Tswalu - Other Reserves

    Our View

    1,000sq km of game reserve, with just two safari lodges at its heart, Tswalu is a world apart, a secret Eden preserved by great hearted and happily generous philanthropists. A superb room lodge with impeccable service; gorgeous house staff to meet and greet and treat you to their Relais and Chateaux-earning gourmet delights, then your own dedicated guide and bushman tracker to take you, all alone, in the company of your own in-jokes and safari interests, on a private safari. With antelopes abounding, and waterhole action in front of your room; this is civilised, gentle safari country, and our first choice for families with children.

    Tubu Tree - Okavango Delta
    Our favorite was Tubu Tree (one of your choices).  I also appreciated your initial suggestion of starting in the bigger more crowded places and going smaller and more remote.  Many people were doing it the opposite way and I think this worked better for us.
    Again, thank you for everything and I hope that we can be in touch soon to plan another trip.

    Ubuntu Tented Camp - Serengeti, Central
    Our trip began in North Serengeti at Ubuntu, which was absolutely magnificent, both the area and the camp itself. There were only 3 guests in total at the camp for our stay, so the service was outstanding. Our guide, Venant, was excellent - even finding a Rhino mother and calf for us. The North Serengeti is very quiet and so different from the crowded central area we have visited before.

    Ulusaba - Kruger

    Our View

    Sir Richard Branson’s Ulusaba is one of the world’s most famous safari hotels and certainly a top end option for luxury safari. Ulusaba appeals to many, because it has many different room types, categories and prices offering fantastic value. It perfectly achieves the balance of delivering high-end service in a friendly manner, which keeps guests returning year after year. Definitely a great option for Sabi Sands safari.

    Unguja Resort - Zanzibar, South Coast
    We like Unguja Resort. Ralph and Elies have created a superb lodge that they can be proud of... its only flaw (a potentially major one) is the location; the beach is simply very disappointing. If you can get over this fact then there are few better value lodges on Zanzibar.
