What to Expect from Safari Accommodation

In such monumental landscapes always expect space. Both with individual rooms and the layout of a camp or lodge. Space and seclusion come naturally here as lodges are carefully situated miles away from each other. Also, expect inimitability. There is no homogenised blueprint to follow, and all accommodation looks to work with the environment to offer something unique in both style and design. And expect to find accommodation that exceeds expectations.

There’s a continual smile of surprise as you arrive at camps that shatter any apprehension about uncomfortable bathrooms or roughing it. Safari accommodation is both the compliment and the antidote to a day of exploring; maintaining your immersion in the wild and providing a luxury that gently pulls you down from the day’s adventure.

Definitions blur, and names are often used interchangeably, but African safari accommodation can be broadly split into half a dozen categories: lodges, luxury tented camps, mobile camps, public campsites, hotels and guesthouses. Some countries are dominated by one of these, in others, a safari itinerary could feature the full range of accommodation styles.

Within these categories, there’s a spread of quality reflected in the price and, sometimes, by star ratings. Most safari itineraries will combine different styles of accommodation, utilising the best options dependent on the destination. Head further into the wild larger national parks and you often stay in intimate camps. Return from a long safari and the extra comfort of a hotel is savoured.

As a very broad summary, lodges are a localised version of a hotel or guesthouse, with private bathrooms, spacious restaurants, and extras like swimming pools. They’re permanent structures that are usually larger than camps. Luxury tented camps are situated in areas rich with wildlife, permanent or semi-permanent operations catering for an intimate number of guests. They use canvas tents on solid bases with large beds and private bathrooms. Mobile tented camps are erected deep in the wilderness, surrounded by wildlife and catering for a small group of guests.

They’re simpler but still spacious and with good amenities, generally geared towards exclusivity and privacy. Within national parks, budget safaris use public campsites with facilities that vary in quality.

All our safari packages include unlimited game drives with no restriction on mileage or fuel. This gives our guests more freedom and flexibility allowing the exploration of more secluded regions for exclusive wildlife viewing.

Unlimited Mileage means that you are able to drive for as long as you want within the parks’ operational hours (6am to 6pm), and the designated area for game drives on the given day.

For example, if the itinerary designates Central Serengeti, then you are able to stay within the Central Serengeti region as long as you want, stretching to the borders of Western Serengeti.

However, we cannot, for instance, drive from Central Serengeti to the Mara River then back. Some companies quote you for limited game drives with restrictions on mileage and fuel.

You wouldn’t make it very far from the main road or have the ability explore the more exclusive areas of the park. With unlimited game drives, you can fully enjoy your safari completely worry-free.

Absolutely. We provide unlimited beverages in our safari vehicle including bottled drinking water, your preferred soft drinks, juice, domestic beer, French-press coffee and tea.
All our safari vehicles are equipped with a small refrigerator to keep your drinks chilled for you to enjoy during your safari.
It is important to never assume that any of the animals encountered on your game drive are tame. Though attacks by wild animals are unusual, nothing in the African wilderness is predictable.
While you are staying in your safari lodges and camps, it is important to be especially cautious and aware of your surroundings as many of these areas are not fenced and contain wildlife roaming freely. If you have children with you, keep them in sight and do not let them wander alone.
At smaller tented lodges, you will always be escorted to and from your tent for dinner or during the night. Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to raise them to the staff or your guide.
