Tanzania

  • Hi Mary, we have had such a fantastic time, seen and experienced so much I am not quite sure where to start. Rwanda was a real experience. The gorilla and golden monkey tracking was just brilliant. It does take a few moments for you to realise that yes you are standing just a few feet away from these beautiful animals in their natural habitat. I think the highlight was when the silverback walked directly past us and sat himself against a tree just 2/3 feet away from us. We also saw him mate with one of the females – which the guides told us we were very lucky to witness. A once in a lifetime experience. The game viewing in the Northern Serengeti was just superb. We experienced a crossing equally as good if not better than the best I have seen on TV. You know that something is special when the guide gets his camera out and takes as many photos as you do!! He estimated that there was upwards of 10,000 Wildebeest. Sayari Camp was delightful and Oredi our guide was clearly passionate about his job and so knowledgeable. By the time we got to Zanzibar, we were ready for a rest. Ras Nungwi Hotel was fantastic and what beautiful beaches. We have had a fantastic holiday, the organisation was superb and everything went without a hitch. I have no doubt that we wouldn’t have had such a rewarding experience without your expert guidance and experience of the area.

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.
