There are essentially three types of accommodation for your safari :
Tanzania Safai Lodges: Safari lodges provide facilities comparable to international 3* 4* & 5* hotels. All are located in stunning locations inside and outside the wildlife areas and some provide a swimming pool. The lodge service we book for our guests is always full-board - all meals and bottled water.
Tanzania Tented Camps: Tented camps are set up in remote but equally stunning locations. They can be either permanent or semi-permanent sites (i.e. sited to catch the migration activity). Tents are spacious and offer a level of comfort you would wish for on your dream safari: Solar lighting, heated water, bathroom, comfortable beds, bed linen, 'room' service, bar, resturant and some with swimming pool
Tanzania Camping Safari: A camping safari is for the adventurous traveler and not a luxury option. On a camping safari the vehicle in which you travel will also transport all equipment, water, food and your safari chef to the campsite. On reaching the campsite, the chef will remain to organize setting up camp and prepare your food while you continue with game driving. Your tents and a sumptious meal will be ready for your return. You will sleep on sleeping pads in spacious canvas safari tents (with ground sheet and mosquito netting). There will be tables, chairs and dining equipment provided. At some camp sites there are flush toilets and showers. However, in campsites located in the Serengeti, facilities are more basic (pit toilets but no showers) to prevent attracting animals to the site. Water is available from storage tanks.
Safaris are priced individually based on the wildlife areas visited, the chosen accommodation, the number of people booking together and the number of days on safari.
If you wish to visit wildlife areas located in southern Tanzania, we work with your tailor-made safari requests to provide fly-drive safaris i.e. fly-in to the location and 4X4 vehicle game viewing (boating and walking in some areas are also possible)
Unlike some other companies, we do not join people together on safari. Our wildlife safaris are for you and your travel partners. Take a look at the tanzania safari programs page to book one of our popular safaris or send us your 'wish list' for a tailor-made safari.
Some of our guests request a safari with an additional activity (Kili trekking or Zanzibar island). We check your dates and quote for hotel nights (before and after safari) and airport transfers accordingly.
