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!

Rivertrees Lodge - Arusha
Rivertrees was fantastic and I’d definitely rate it a 5. They allowed us to check-in early. The room was very comfortable and clean. The grounds were lovely to walk around and we saw loads of monkeys playing in the trees.The food was fantastic and had a lovely atmosphere around the fire in the evening. All the staff were friendly and helpful and could’nt do enough for us, from the reception, to the restaurant and the guys carrying our bags and the ladies cleaning the rooms.

    5 out of 5 for the guide. 4 out of 5 for food and while I didn't like the lodge as much as I liked the tent, I am glad that we chose two such different styles of accommodation.  Our room (banda) was quite nice and I enjoyed having so much space to spread out in.  I also loved the porch and all of the animals you could watch from your own front door.  However, the whole resort had a bit of an odd... maybe slightly neglected feel.  The upper dining area had a gorgeous lookout, but it was strange to have it sit empty while we were there.  It felt almost forgotten.  Not a big deal at all, but it gave a less cohesive feel to the camp.

    The Rufiji River Camp is at the lower end of the price range for camps in the Selous.  In our view, if you’re looking at keeping costs down, you are better off going to Lake Manze Tented Camp for a very small up-cost and guaranteeing a much better game experience.

    Without exception everywhere we stayed was amazing with the highlights being Magwusi and Sand Rivers. The staff at both these camps were really first-rate as was the food and the locations were mind-blowing!

    Sasakwa Lodge - Serengeti, West
    The riding is based at Sasakwa but available to guests at all Singita lodges.  It is included in the price (I was very positively surprised by this) and they test your ability before you are able to ride out.  You need to be a pretty decent standard. 
    Faru Faru food has an Asian fusion touch (we loved this) whereas Sasakwa is more French/fine dining. 
    Rooms 1-4 have the view of the watering holes and in my opinion are the best (we were room 3).  We saw a baby elephant (which thought it was drowning!) being saved by its mother and the whole herd, whilst eating our lunch, which was remarkable. 
    A lot of guests were very envious of our direct route to Zanzibar from Faru – thank you for arranging those flights!!
    There is no shop (at least not for anything practical).  But…We forgot our sunscreen – don’t worry, they have it and of course you don’t need to pay ;) ! they have thought of everything.

    Sayari Camp - Serengeti, North
    I am composing a much longer email, so this is just a quick note to let you know that our trip to Africa was marvelous!!!! Sayari was the hit of the trip, and I wish we had stayed there an extra night. I will be sending more details, but in the meantime, I wanted you to know that everything went off without a hiccup and we were delighted with your service. Take care, and many thanks for a wonderful vacation!!!! - S Brown

    We really loved Impala as well - Pietro (our guide) was endlessly patient and went out of his way to keep the boys interested. Loved the fishing. - G James

    Selous Riverside Safari Camp is one of many camps located outside the reserve and is regarded as one of the better. However, the camp is still not ideally located as it is a 15-20 minute drive, through a village to the reserve entrance. The lodge itself is located on bank of Rufiji River but unfortunately looks over the river to fields rather than bush.

    Very good condition of the lodge and tent, very warm hosts, and the fact that we were the only guests for one of our nights was fantastic. Also the safari guide was fantastic.  - M. Flaherty
