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!

Set right next to Tarangire National Park within the Kwakuchinja wildlife migration corridor, home to over 50 species of mammals. Manyara Ranch conservancy is a small permanent tented camp that can offer game drives in both Manyara National Park and Tarangire.The private conservancy is an intimate and undisturbed safari destination, across the lake from Lake Manyara National Park.
Although this is a large lodge, it disguises its size quite well with its spread out design. The little pointy thatched rooms are dotted over a large area creating good space between one another. With only a 20 minute drive to the park, the Lake Manyara Serena is a great option for this area given its access and amazing views. If a tented camp is not your thing or you don’t want to stay in neighbouring Karatu then this is a great choice.

Legendary Serengeti camp, is a mobile tented camp erected in close proximity to the migration, wherever that may be at any given time of the year. Driven by an endless search for food and water, the great herds of the migration and their attendant predators are constantly on the move.
