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!

Kinasi Lodge - Mafia Island
The  Mafia Island experience was also wonderful…very friendly hotel and dive centre, with great diving…. uncrowded and unspoiled. And we saw five or six whale sharks which was just the best thing...the big draw  of the trip to Mafia.

    Kiota Camp - Serengeti Central
    We were met off the plane and had a game drive before we went to Kiota Camp. During our four days stay which you need, lost count of the number of lions we saw including a pride of 13, four tree climbing, an injured male with wire round his neck which had to be sedated with its female, by rangers and vet, and a family with a kill.
    The herds of elephant, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and wilderbeast were huge. We also saw five leopards and three cheetahs. One with her cub got down from her rock and walked in front of our vehicle. Best of all our driver Raymond after another early start took us to see the migration.
    It was completely unimagineable. Best of all they all got across the river. 
    Kiota camp was great staff, wonderful food, fantastic game drives.  We could hear lions every night and sometimes in the morning at breakfast. Also zebras and hyenas right outside our tent. What more could you ask for? - D & K Oates

    Kirawira Lodge - Serengeti, West
    Although Kirawira is a tented camp, it is not your typical small and personal safari camp. Being owned by the Serena chain it is larger than most but it also offer a fine level of service and quality and in most cases, better than the larger lodges in this category. Located in the Western Corridor of the Serengeti, it gets a season passing the migration but there is also great resident game here. The tents have great views and you should be able to see the migration from your room in June and July.

    Kirurumu Manyara Lodge - Lake Manyara
    The lodge has an excellent view of the Great Rift Valley from many of the rooms and the bar area. We think this is a good option for those who are lovers of a great view and a slightly bigger lodge style.

    Kirurumu Ngorongoro - Ngorongoro Crater

    Kirurumu Ngorongoro is a stunning tented camp situated on rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, boasting sensational views. It is a very intimate camp in a true safari style, a far cry from the large, faceless chains that are also present on the rim. Great views, great guides and great value!

    Kirurumu Serengeti Camp - Serengeti, Mobile
    The camp at the Serengeti ( Kirurumu)  was a real experience. We loved being out in nature and hearing the calls of the local animals, including the resident lions!  The staff was great and having laundry service was a big help.  Emanuel was an amazing guide who really added to the experience.  We even spent a day driving north and caught part of the migration!  We saw the big 5 which was a real treat, as well as many lions! Visiting the Serengeti was a trip of a lifetime.

    Kitela Lodge - Ngorongoro Highlands

    A brand spanking new, multi-faceted, lodge in the Ngorongoro Highlands. It’s expansive, clean and luxurious. It’s by no means traditionally built but can very much serve a purpose if you’re looking for a place in that region. The surroundings are undoubtedly stunning and the backdrop of the coffee plantations are awe inspiring.

    Kono Kono - Zanzibar, East Coast

    Everything about this lodge looks great.  The rooms look good, they are big, the beach is excellent and pool is lovely.  But we can’t think of anywhere on Zanzibar with such shaky management.  Like its sister lodge, Kasha Boutique Hotel, it may be worth a three night stay at the beginning of a trip with the motive being to enjoy the rooms, private plunge pools and privacy while you just relax for a few days.  But don’t expect all the wines to be in stock or the best level of service.  For a longer stay you are better off sacrificing the lovely room and paying the same for a lodge that will deliver for you.

    Kuro Camp - Tarangire
    Absolutely amazing location in the middle of the park. Away from the crowds and in middle of the action! The ability to do true sundowners (allowed to stay past sunset) and night drives here is a huge plus and differentiates it from the other parks we went to. - K. Dong
