This page is a comprehensive list of all the Tanzania lodges and Zanzibar hotels featured on this website.
It is very hard to rank lodges with one simple measure! But we have tried, and herewith an explanation of our system.

Our ranking is subjective (it is the office consensus, after much arguing), and tries to reflect value for money as well as overall quality. Therefore we may award just three stars to a 'five star' Zanzibar Hotel in the hotel tick-box sense, or five stars to a superb, unashamed 'three star' Tanzania Lodge that consistently provides superb quality experiences for the price.  We care a great deal about location, whether in the bush or on the beach, and in many cases this has influenced our choice. It is unorthodox, it may seem at odds with the world view, but we can explain... and we urge you to call us to discuss!

We don't just know Tanzania! 


For more information on Tanzania, the best thing to do is to give us a ring for an impartial chat. Although we love Tanzania, we also love the rest of Africa too and have experts in all the main safari countries. If you are undecided as to where to visit, please do just drop us an email or give us a call!

    Oyster Bay Hotel - Dar es Salaam

    Oyster Bay is the finest place to stay in Dar es Salaam.  There are only 8 rooms, unlike the typically large hotel airports in Dar.  The food and service is amazing.  The rooms are massive and a welcome break from a safari or long haul flight.  The Oyster Bay is not cheap at all and it’s only used as a one or two night stop, so if you are looking to save then we recommend one of the larger hotel airports like the Royal Palm.

    Park Hyatt - Zanzibar, Stone Town
    The Park Hyatt Hotel is a large hotel, well situated on the beach front in Stone Town, a UNESCO world heritage site.  As expected at larger, well known hotel chains there is an excellent attention to details and an attentive, professional service.

    Plantation Lodge - Ngorongoro Highlands
    Plantation Lodge had very nice rooms and contained exceptional service with well prepared and fresh food. The grounds were very well kept and offered good views as well. The atmosphere at dinner was very romantic with dimmed lights perfect for a honeymoon. The lodge contained a vast wine collection and a very nice common area for people to enjoy drinks or coffee after dinner. The afternoon tea or coffee was also a nice touch.  Would definitely visit again and recommended to friends and family. - F Cina

    Ras Kutani - Tanzania Mainland
    Ras Kutani's setting on the Indian Ocean could not be more beautiful and the staff more helpful.  Our suite up the hill had an amazing view and was completely private. The staff immediately made us feel at home and like a part of their family. - A Kerwin USA

    Residence Zanzibar - Zanzibar, South Coast
    The Residence in Zanzibar was a very luxurious hotel, not our usual kind of place but I have to say the room was exceptional (especially the private pool) and the little details that they created for our honeymoon were very thoughtful. The only small thing I would say is that they sometimes don't give you enough privacy in the room as they come and clean or tidy 4/5 times a day and they enter the room even if you're there but apart from that it has been perfect - M.
