A visit to Tanzania will introduce you to a wealth of natural attraction. Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, is situated in the northeast, near the tourist hub of Arusha. The nearby Tanzania game parks of Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire receive most of the safari visitor volume. Other notable game parks that are included in our packages include Selous Game Reserve and Mikumi National Park in the south and Gombe National Park in the west. Further to the west are the Great Lakes, Lake Victoria (Africa’s largest lake) and Lake Tanganyika (the world’s deepest lake), which can be part of your itinerary while on a Tanzania safari tour. The capital city of Dar Es Salaam is located on the eastern shore, where its main attraction is the exotic island of Zanzibar lying just offshore, with its Swahili architecture, spice plantations and white sand beaches. Anybody who embarks on a Tanzania safari must make it a point to visit this amazing place.
Accommodation in Tanzania is as varied as the range of animals. With such an impressive diversity available, we take great care in selecting the accommodation that suits your style, taste and budget. From rustic tented camps to exclusive safari lodges with the character of upmarket hotels. Each type of accommodation offers something unique.
Tented camps suit clients who want to experience a truly authentic safari and immerse themselves in the wilderness. It offers you the change of seeing wildlife close by. The camps are in general smaller and more intimate than lodges. They are set in stunning locations with great game viewing. Don’t let the word ‘tent’ mislead you. Many tented camps are luxurious properties offering the same, or even better, comfort levels as the lodges. You can expect private spacious tents on decking platforms, with comfortable beds, furniture, flush toilets, en-suite bathrooms and sometimes a pool. Often they are more exclusive than lodges, which is the reason they sometimes cost more than a lodge.
There are two types of tented camps: permanent and mobile. The permanent tented camps allow greater infrastructure and facilities, such as larger tents, more comfortable furnishings, flush toilets, 24-hour lighting and more staff. The advantage of mobile tented camps is that it allows guests to follow the wildlife and be as close to animals as possible.
Lodges are perfect for travellers who like comfort and ease and to sleep behind four solid walls. During the day you can enjoy game drives out in the bush and in the evenings all the facilities you would find in a hotel, like a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, gift shops and much more. Safari lodges are permanent facilities with solid walls made of brick and stone or other materials. In general, lodges are much bigger than tented camps. Of course, not all lodges are created equal and they have different levels of comfort and pricing. Most lodges consist of a number of buildings scattered across a plot of land.
You can choose to ‘mix and match’ the different styles of accommodation during your safari.
