Tanzania Hotels & Lodges

Tanzania safari industry is not big, it is massive. With 16 national parks, 29 game reserves, 40 controlled conservation areas and marine parks and Africa’s highest mountain – Mt. Kilimanjaro – there is more than casually serious investment in the hospitality industry. The competition is sky high, as are the expectations of the diverse mix of visitors that come to see our country every year.

Most Tanzania safari camps and lodges offer an impressive range of high quality facilities with most quite correctly anticipating the needs of the visitors. Many standard camps and lodges inside and around the safari destinations have swimming pools to cool off after a rigorous time in the bush. Many will also include some value added facilities and activities like massages, bush walks, bonfires, nightcaps, bush dinners and facilitate cultural engagement with the locals. Almost all facilities are clean and well-maintained with a generally high standard of furnishings and dressings. Majority offer continental and African cuisine with the meals being quite palatable. Vegetarian, vegan and other special plans are available on request – though some facilities require prior notification due to their remoteness. The child policies are quite friendly making family holidays easy to manage and in some cases a lot of fun. Honeymoon suites are common at most lodges with more privately appointed quarters, more luxurious furnishings and the expected extra attention. Generally speaking, the accommodation at Tanzania’s wildlife destinations are quite comfortable and affordable, with the usual exceptions.

Many years of different experiences at many camps and lodges have seen us develop many preferences, some unavoidable prejudices and in some cases outright fondness and respect. We have put together a list of accommodations we recommended with a brief description of the facilities and a hint of the kind of experience you would expect to have at each. We have special arrangements with all of the Tanzania safari camps and lodges that we have featured here and are in a position to confidently guarantee the lowest rates anywhere, coupled with almost-guaranteed availability. Given these arrangements, we can also confidently promise you a pleasant stay with some little extra care taken to ensure the visitors we send there have a hassle-free time so they can enjoy their safari and concentrate on the gist of their African safari holiday. Feel free to look through the season rates and let us know if you have any concerns. For confirmation of rates and availability, please fill in the booking request forms or send us a quick note on our contacts page. Our telephone and Skype contacts are also at the top and bottom of every page.
