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!

Blue Bay - Zanzibar, East Coast

Blue Bay resort works very well for a more economical option in the large hotel category.  It may be big but this hotel has everything you need and rather nice rooms given the low price.  Most large cheaper hotels are notoriously bad but the Blue Bay Resort delivers a great product if you are not expecting the world!  We do prefer Breezes Beach Club which is slightly more expensive and smaller in comparison but we think it is worth the little extra cost.

    Breezes Beach Club - Zanzibar, East Coast
    Breezes was perfect for our family! The food was good, the staff were attentive and there was lots going on to keep the kids happy! The rooms were really nice actually too - great family hotel. We'd go back if visiting Zanzibar again for sure!

    Chada Camp - Katavi
    A simple comfortable safari camp which will suit those more interested in the wildlife than the luxury spa circuit.
     
    Large comfortable and well furnished tents in a camp offering great plains views and good food and service. Nomad are excellent. - S Smith

    Chem Chem Lodge - Tarangire

    Chem Chem is a luxurious lodge in a beautiful location but it is not for those wanting a pumping safari lodge. It is about taking things slow and seeing another side to safari. Great for the few who have the time and the budget.

    Chole Mjini - Mafia Island
    Chole Mjini is in a fabulous location -  and the whole concept of  the tree houses and the lay out of the place is idyllic.  We did some great excursions such as breakfasting on the sand bar (it was so fabulous) snorkelling, a trip to the blue lagoon (stunningly beautiful) swimming amongst the mangroves during high tide and candlelit dinners on the dock and by the ruins.  - R.

    Chumbe Island - Zanzibar Islands

    Chumbe Island is Zanzibar’s first marine sanctuary and remains a unique destination for very keen snorkellers.  It is an education over load of marine life and being home to 90% of East Africa’s coral species really gives it a different angle to your typical beach experience.  Getting there can be a bit of a mission, with the boat transfers going at set times so it sometimes doesn’t really favour tight flight connections.  But it is a lovely eco lodge for a certain type of person and being 100% run by locals it is a pure African beach experience.

    Diamonds La Gemma - Zanzibar, North Coast
    This is one of Zanzibar’s largest hotels.  Although it does offer a lovely cheap rate on all its room categories, the ambience and European-party induced character it has adopted make it reason to look elsewhere if you are after some sort of peace.  In fairness to the designers, the rooms are well hidden from the bulk of the property but once you’re at your room, you are evidently in one of many large blocks.  If you are looking for a big hotel, we much prefer to use Breezes which offers a better quality product at about the same price.

    Dunia Camp - Serengeti, Central
    We were very luck that we were able to see the great migration. All the plans were done with this intention, but I was a little bit afraid that something could happen and animals were not there. But they were!!!!  It was absolutely spectacular!!!  And now words to describe how wonderful the Dunia Camp team is. I´m in love of them!!!  The hotel is comfortable, everything works perfectly and the service is more than perfect!  It couldn´t be better! I hope I can have another opportunity to come back to Serengeti, but now to see the animals crossing the river Grumeti or Mara.  Let´s see it. - Borner
