Where to Stay

Hotels and Lodges in Tanzania

There is a wide variety of accommodation options available. Most often it is budget which determines which option you choose, however it is important to know the experiences you get from each. Ask yourself would you feel more comfortable surrounded by brick walls with air conditioning and fences or have you dreamed of falling asleep under canvas to the sounds of the African bush right outside? You need to choose something which you will be comfortable with. A good safari travel planner will have personally visited a variety of lodges and camps and will be able to explain to you the full experience first-hand.

We’ll find you an authentic safari camp where you can experience the magic of waking to the sunrise in your tent or, if you’d prefer, a luxurious tree-top lodge. On the beach, we have chosen characterful places, from simple cottages to stylish lodges on private islands.

Best Accommodation in Tanzania

Home to the Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and a host of other superb parks and reserves, Tanzania is one of Africa’s classic safari destinations. And its accommodation options reflect this: luxury safari lodges, remote tented camps and popular safari hotels make up most of our recommendations.

Our selection of Tanzania accommodation showcases both luxury lodges and more affordable safari camps, ensuring that everyone gets a taste of this fascinating and diverse country. Tanzania also has some of East Africa’s most exceptional and indulgent accommodation – think private safari villas set in the most incredible wilderness locations.

Tanzania’s ‘green season’, between November and March, is much quieter. While there’s a chance of rain showers, it’s a fantastic time for birdwatching as migratory species arrive in their thousands. You’ll also see Great Migration herds with their newly born calves

Accommodation Types Offered On Safari

Tanzania is the envy of most safari countries, as you can visit this destination all year round. However, the best time to visit for wildlife is during the dry season, between June and October, particularly for the peak of the wildebeest migration. Below, you’ll find a month-by-month guide highlighting the best time to go on safari:

Tented camps are made up of large, walk in, canvas tents set up on permanent frames. These camps are generally smaller than lodges and have the amenities similar to that of a lodge or hotel such as separate en-suite bathrooms, restaurants and swimming pools. The tented camps aim to provide all the comforts of a lodge while giving guests a smaller, intimate, tented yet luxurious safari experience. Same it ranges from three-star levels to ultimate five-star luxury.

Safari lodges are a different experience from a tented camp. On the whole (although there are many exceptions) safari lodges are larger than tented camps, and often offer more amenities such as swimming pools, shops and perhaps a choice of restaurants, just like a large hotel. Lodges range in luxury from 3 or 4-star to 5-star deluxe.

These small, intimate camps move around, following herds of migratory animals. Camp operators construct semi-permanent camps that are constructed in the open bush. There are no barriers and animals can roam free but these mobile camps are safe and guests’ safety is a top priority. The camps are fully serviced by a permanent staff and the camps aim to offer up a luxury experience in the wilderness. Meals are served by a camp chef and eaten in the ambience of Africa, water is heated by staff for bathing, and generators power the mobile camps. When staying in a tented camp, guests have the opportunity to truly connect with nature. December – April mobile tents are set in Ndutu areas, May to June – North and west Serengeti, July to October – North Serengeti.

Budget camping fits in the tented camps category. The experience is however completely different, making it deserve to be regarded separately.

You get to stay in public campsites, inside bivouac tents, sleeping on mattresses laid on the tent floor, or in sleeping bags. Basic washroom facilities are available in the public campsites, and are shared by everyone at the campsite. Campsites are the most basic of accommodations in terms of facilities and amenities. However, out here you will most likely have the most authentic experience and get as close to nature as nowhere else.

well organised trip and affordable prices I loved my trip up Kilimanjaro withTravel Route. I was picked up at the airport by Emmanuel. The hotel I stayed at the day before the trek was nice and even had a pool which was good for relaxing before the climb. I went on the Machame route, which was great. It's beautiful and the climb was manageable. The guides were encouraging, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable. The tents we stayed in on the climb were nice and we even had sleeping mats, which made for a comfortable sleep. The food on the climb was plentiful and better than I expected it to be. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Travel Route to anyone thinking about about climbing Kilimanjaro.
