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!

    Matemwe Retreat - Zanzibar, East Coast

    Our View

    Matemwe Retreat is a group of 3 private villas attached to the Matemwe Bungalows beach lodge.  They are extremely luxurious and give the feeling of being waited on hand and foot in an exclusive, tropical hideaway.  If a completely secluded experience on Zanzibar is what you have in mind then this really does fit the bill.  Matemwe Retreat is the perfect honeymooner’s palace!

    Mbalageti Lodge - Serengeti, West
    Mbalageti Tented Lodge is actually quite lovely, but its size lets it down. The rooms are very good and the main area is inviting and warm but when you have up to 80 people in the lodge it doesn’t really feel like a typical safari camp or appeal to us. It is also seasonal interms of the Great Migration, only being located in the right area for a short period each year..

    Mchanga - Zanzibar, East Coast

    Mchanga Beach Lodge is a real find and is still very much an undiscovered lodge on a great little beach.  Set away from the large hotel resorts both up and down the coast, the feeling of the lodge is of being in an unspoilt enclave.

    Mdonya camp was the perfect way to immerse us all into the safari holiday. We enjoyed the day- long game drives, starting with coffee and cake brought to the tent, colourful Masai blankets to keep us warm until the sun came up and packed breakfast and lunch in the bush. We saw all the animals we wanted to see and were amazed at the knowledgable guides. - J. Donnelly

    Migration Camp - Serengeti, North

    Our View

    Migration Camp is a luxury Permanent Lodge owned by the Elewana chain located in the North Central area of the Serengeti. We really like the actual property but the one main issue is the location. Yes it is good for the migration around the early July time but the herds move through here so fast that it’s very easy to miss them. There is good resident game here but as this area of the Serengeti is quite shrubby and wooded- spotting them can be troublesome.  Depending on the time of the year we would either be more inclined with a Northern Camp in the Kogatende area or something in the South or West.

    The whole staff team at Mivumo were so friendly and helpful and arranged fabulous memorable moments such arranging a pop up bar on the river bank so we could watch the sunset over the river gin and tonic in hand! The food was delicious- fresh, tasty and perfectly cooked and we even had breakfast by the river in the last morning watching the baboons, hippos and crocodiles.

    Mnemba Island - Zanzibar Islands
    Mnemba despite the astronomical price was incredible, one of the most beautiful places we’ve been and with brilliant food and service, our butler Rajab was brilliant, we absolutely loved it and would love to go back. Probably in about 20 years when we’ve saved up enough again. - R. Cohen

    With quite a range of lodges and small hotels to choose from these days in and around Arusha, this lodge stands out as being a good choice. With good service and clean, airy rooms the lodge is well managed. It has a good sized pool for those who may have come off Kilimanjaro, otherwise ideal for a quick dip in the afternoon after arriving from anywhere else. A good option for those looking for a quiet and charming stoop over point on their way through. Excellent for families, but if you are looking for small intimate place, look elsewhere.
