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!

Kasha - Zanzibar, East Coast
We do like Kasha and there are aspects of it which make it worth the money, but only as long as you are aware there is literally no beach.  It is extremely tidal, so when it is up you are confined to the lodge. The rooms are excellent though and you can enjoy the luxuries of air-conditioning, private plunge pools and television.  The service has been rocky at times but a 3 night stop here at the start of your trip can be worthwhile if taking advantage of their frequent offers and making full use of the rooms.

    Katavi only has a couple of accommodation options in the park and this is one of our favourites with a simply incredible view onto the plains. Owned and run by the Fox family, who have other properties in southern Tanzania this camp reflects what a classic safari camp should be like.

    Kati Kati - Serengeti, Central
    Kati Kati is actually a great option for someone doing the northern circuit on a particularly tight budget.  It is by no means luxurious - but it is simple, easy and great value for money in an area that has become extremely expensive.  A group of great staff and a clean bed is all some people need from a trip to one of the best game viewing areas of the Serengeti.

    Katuma Lodge - Katavi

    Katuma Bush Lodge is ideal for the traveller looking for a truly remote experience away from regular tourist routes. In this park, you will find animals curious and unfamiliar to human contact. The flotillas of pelican are a special sight.  Game drives are offered twice a day with an optional night game drive.

    Kensington Endoro - Ngorongoro Highlands

    Kensington Endoro is a lovely lodge and like all lodges in the highlands area, it serves a great purpose for those on safari round the Ngorongoro Crater and Manyara. It is great value and the rooms are superb. However, we still recommend Plantation Lodge as the preferred alternative or Gibbs farm if you’re looking to spend a bit more. But if everywhere else is full, the Kensington Endoro does very well as a last resort option and will make no difference to you stay in this area.

    Kichaka Camp - Ruaha
    Kichaka is a fantastic place,and for people who don't want to just count sightings it is the best.The team there are great,location fantastic and Ruaha is the best park we went to.Food was also the best we had and the eagerness to ensure we experienced everything was good.Would recommend this place to anyone who wants something different to the normal camps.

    Kigelia - Ruaha
    Kigelia had to be the highlight of our trip, such a wild camp and we just saw such incredible game. 4 leopards in one day! It just made the honeymoon so special especially as I have a bit of an obsession with leopards! The guides were so knowledgeable... definite 10 out of 10

    Kilimatonge - Ruaha

    A totally private camp situated in the remote wilderness of the Ruaha National Park. It moves between two locations on the Mdonya river, in the shadow of the Kilimatonge Hill. This Camp offers a truly wild safari, it's fairly basic but no other camp, save for Kichaka, offers such a feeling of wilderness and a style of safari that is reminiscent of the early colonial explorers.

    Kilindi - Zanzibar, North Coast
    Kilindi was also a truly special spot on the gorgeous Indian Ocean. The 3 day safari followed by 4 days relaxing on the beach was just right. - E Bradford

    Kimondo - Serengeti, Mobile
    This is a 5 star tented camp. This was the first of 6 different locations that we stayed at while on Safari. Kimondo Lamai Camp set the bar so high that no other place came close in service or food. If I ever do another Safari, this is the only place I will stay. - C. Henderson
