Tanzania Lodges Safari Accommodation

The places that you stay during your Tanzania Safari can be a source of unforgettable memories. There are different types of accommodation available and we hope the following information will help inform your choices.

Hotels & Lodges are easy to get your head around. These are permanent buildings with solid walls! They are full-service facilities with private rooms or cottages. They have private bathrooms, restaurants and lounges. Some have swimming pools. Many lodges are stunning; made with local materials and inspired by local designs and the environment. You will find Hotels & Lodges both inside and outside of the National Parks. There is a wide range of Hotels & Lodges ranging from budget to ultra-luxury.

For many people, part of the appeal of coming on a Tanzania Safari is that you have the chance to sleep under canvas. There are two very different options:


Basic Camping Safaris (Tents on the ground)

On a basic camping safari, guests sleep in small private tents in designated campsites in or near National Parks. You sleep inside a sleeping bag on a roll up mattress. Our safari crew sets up the camp every evening and prepares all your meals. Facilities at the campsites are basic. They include shared washrooms and showers.

Tented Camps

These are permanent or semi-permanent camps, normally situated in areas of excellent game viewing. The Camps provide many of the comforts of a lodge within private, spacious canvas tents. They are often constructed on a solid base with beds, private bathrooms, and good quality meals that are prepared for you and served in a designated tent. The appeal of these camps and ‘safari tents’ is that you can experience sleeping under canvas in the wilderness, whilst still maintaining a high level of comfort.

The Camps are not fenced. Wild animals can and do wander through, sometimes stopping to graze. There are always guards at the Camps to walk you to and from your tent once it gets dark, and as far as we know, the staff have not taught the animals how to unzip a heavy canvas tent! Laying in bed listening to the sounds of a giraffe munching on a nearby acacia tree, lions roaring, or zebra eating the grass outside of your tent can initially cause accelerated heartbeats, but it is exhilarating, and unquestionably adds to your safari experience.
