Stunning value while still hitting great game areas, this combination is a great entry level and first time safari and beach trip.
An intimate and brilliant value luxury tented camp in a good location within the Selous. Game viewing activities include open-sided 4x4 game drives, walking safaris and boating safaris.
Charming and exceptional value, Sunshine Hotel offers simple accommodation on one of the islands best beaches. Located up in Matemwe the hotel also gives guests easy access to Mnemba Island for the islands best diving and snorkelling. Overall a lovely little property that helps make an overall itinerary more affordable.
Rustic yet reliable, this comnination is winner for those who are interested in animals but don't need chandeliers. Simple beach lodge with good beach to finish.
Lake Manze is a genuinely fantastic yet simple safari camp. It has a prime position on the edge of a beautiful lake and is within shouting distance of pods of bathing hippo. No electricity in the lodge gives it a rustic edge, yet its comfort and charm give it an old world gravitas that other camps can’t touch. The camp is not about five star luxury, but in terms of safari and value for money, there are none better.
Mdonya is without doubt the best value camp in Ruaha National Park. It has that same charm and character of its famous sister camp in the Selous, Lake Manze Tented Camp. Mdonya may be basic and simple but this is what Ruaha is all about. It is a fierce and wild park and Mdonya is in a very wild area of it. With its great location you can rely on there being quality game viewing and you don’t necessarily need to spend that extra cash if luxury is not your priority. Mdonya and has always delivered and we have a lot of faith in this little camp.
Excellent value adventurous safari in great game areas, followed by a classic and reliable hotel on Zanzibar.
Breezes is exceptional value for money. It may be a large hotel but it delivers a trusty and excellent product. It is our favourite in the ‘large hotel’ category and perfect for families and honeymooners alike. Having been running for longer than most of the other properties on the island you can expect the years of experience to shine through. The facilities are great and the lovely long pristine beach makes its size all worthwhile.
If you're looking for a shorter trip with good luxury, then this is a great option. Both these lodges are favourites with clients over the years. You cannot go wrong with these camps!
Siwandu reigns supreme in our opinion. It has a fantastic location, great guides and gorgeous tents offering every luxury in a truly authentic style. Discreetly tucked amongst the palm trees on the banks of Lake Nzerakera, it has everything you could want in a safari holiday and is definitely our number one tented camp in the Selous.
A truly fantastic hotel; without doubt one of the very best on the entire African coast. The beach here is very good and due to its location on the north tip of the island is very quiet as there are not hotels to the east of the location. Ras Nungwi offers good value for money on Zanzibar, excellent water sports great facilities and has consistently delivered over the years.
The Holy Trinity. Best value luxury in the South. Beautiful lodges, two safari parks, remote beach. If you stay at all these lodges then there are fantastic deals available.
Jongomero is an absolutely exceptional safari camp. It is one of our favourites in the whole of Tanzania, which is not a compliment we hand out easily. It is the most luxurious camp in the park as well as offering fantastic service, the most remote location and guiding so good it borders on genius. Jongomero really is a firm favourite and one we highly recommend.
The best beach lodge in east Africa! As a company we have explored the entire coast and there nowhere that gets near to Ras Kutani. It is ‘bare foot beach luxury’ at its best and comes at fantastic value. It is secluded, private and spectacularly beautiful. Team this with fantastic rooms, lovely food and great service and we have ourselves a champion of beach lodges.
3 top quality lodges- an excellent honeymoon option. The Southern parks followed by the best on Zanzibar.
Sand Rivers Selous is an adventurous barefoot luxury lodge in the quieter area of the Selous Game Reserve. Owned by Nomad Tanzania, who have camps in pretty much every park in Tanzania, this is one of their top properties and it’s great for those seeking adventure in the wilderness, with lots of walking safari, excellent fly camping and boating up to Steiglers Gorge.
Kilindi is run by the very reputable Elewana. Originally privately owned and built to be Zanzibar’s new big thing, Elewana has done a great job at keeping it a top property. Management has reformed Kilindi to be the best two person accommodation on Zanzibar. The pavilions are what make Kilindi, with the two private plunge pools, massive bathrooms and bedrooms and great views.
Why beat around the bush? This trip is all you need. Best safari lodge in the Selous, best beach lodge in Africa.
Beho Beho has been blessed with one of the most sublime views in the Selous game reserve. It provides its guests with every luxury and more, whilst over looking a huge area of true wilderness. The lodge consists of 9 stone bandas (the panoramic view comes free) that are not left wanting in terms of providing their guests with every comfort possible. The food, guiding and service are all of the very highest standard.
Travel writers have often named Mnemba as one of the top beaches in the world, certainly in Africa. Mnemba is the ultimate definition of barefoot luxury, one of the few places where you can snorkel straight off the beach and onto pristine reef. Owned and run by &Beyond, the food and service is top class- however, all this does come an eye watering cost…
Selous and Ruaha camps for those who love safari! Lots of walking safari with this one; guided by some of the finest walking specialists.
Affectionately called the Big C, this trip takes in all the Southern parks, as well as the West on Tanzania. Expect every safari experience possible, swathes of Africa to yourself, and crowned by chimps in the wild.
Greystoke is one of the best lodges in Africa, there is really nowhere else like it and the game experience is very different – trekking in the Mahale Mountains for Chimpanzees! Lake Tanganyika is an ancient lake and the second largest by volume in the world. The main thatched building sits on the white beach and the 6 bandas are hidden into the edge of the undergrowth with incredible views out onto the water. It’s not cheap but if you have travelled all this way then you simply must stay at this lodge.
Chada is one of the most remote lodges we use in Tanzania, located in the Katavi National Park, one of the wildest game experiences in Tanzania. There are a handful of lodges in the park and this is by far the best property, run by Nomad Tanzania who are famous for their adventurous camps with some very good guiding and management. A stay at Chada is often complimented with a stay in neighbouring Mahale National Park at the other famous Nomad property- Greystoke.
