Tanzania

  • Hello Mary, thanks again for your help in organising what was an absolutely tremendous holiday. My boys loved it right from the start of walking across the car park at Kenyatta Airport to find we were straight into a safari 4×4, and I’ve never heard my wife use the word “awesome” as much as the last fortnight. We saw some phenomenal habitats and wildlife, stayed in some fabulous accommodation, met some lovely people, and the welcome and hospitality extended to us was almost uniformly warm and generous throughout.

Accommodation Options In Tanzania

Tanzania offers a very wide range of accommodation options. For the very adventurous, there are well-organised but simple ‘fly-camping’ options, usually associated with walking safaris. At the luxury end of the market, there are various properties that offer extreme luxury, and many further that combine a high level of comfort with exclusivity, great service and wonderful locations.

For more mainstream safaris in the northern parks, there are a series of decent hotel-style lodges which offer perfectly adequate accommodation, but not a great deal of exclusivity or imagination. If you are prepared to be a little more adventurous, and can afford the extra cost, then there are a number of fantastic seasonal and mobile tented camps from which to choose.

In the south and west of the country, properties tend to be much smaller, rarely catering for more than 30 guests. There are a number of excellent permanent tented camps and lodges which vary in style and comfort but manage to offer a similarly wild and authentic safari experience.

On the coast, the hotel options are equally varied, with a few very exclusive ‘beach retreats’ in remote, unspoilt settings, and a large number of more mainstream beach-resort hotels, particularly on Zanzibar.

Please find below a variety of individual properties and safari options available in Tanzania, listed by accommodation style and where appropriate, by region.
