Tanzania > Accommodation


  • Hello Mary, the trip was just utterly incredible. The combination of Sosian, Serengeti and Zanzibar was perfect and the order just right. Really we couldn’t have wished for more. The Serengeti time was so special – lack of WIFI with teenage kids is such a bonus. We managed to keep it from them in Sosian too until they overheard someone mention you could get it at the entrance! All your organisation and flights etc. worked a treat and having been worried about the flying element, it became a highlight. When I think of the millions people spend going to spas and retreats etc. – all you need is a weekend of safari to feel like a completely renewed human being! Thank you so much and we will be planning our next one now!

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.
