Tanzania luxury safari lodges (accommodation)

Whether you are visiting Tanzania to watch greatest wildlife show on Earth, to hike Africa’s talles mountain or to explore the world’s largest caldera, you will need a place to stay. There are three broad categories of accommodation for luxury safaris in Tanzania. These include wildlife lodges, semi-permanent tented camps and exclusive five-star permanent lodge;

1. Wildlife Lodges

The best represented accommodation category for Tanzania luxury safari tours comprises large wildlife lodges. These normally rank highly in terms of conventional hotel-style amenities, but they also tend to feel rather removed from the surrounding bush.

2. Semi-permanent tented camps

At the other extreme of Tanzania luxury safari accommodation are exclusive permanent or semi-permanent tented camps. These mainly comprise canvas units that typically come with comfortable beddings, en suite hot showers and private verandahs. These camps also offer high-quality cuisine, service and wine.

3. Exclusive five-star permanent lodges

Falling in between the wildlife lodges and semi-permanent tented camps are small, exclusive 5-star permanent lodges that might be described as the safari equivalent of boutique hotels.

If it is possible, look for Tanzania luxury safari packages that offer a mix of accommodation types, as each has its advantages. For example, a high-class tented camp is almost certainly the most hands-on way to experience the wilderness of Africa. But, after a few nights, the superior amenities of a larger lodge might come as a welcome break. If facilities such as 24-hour electricity, Wi-Fi or swimming pools are important to you, then ensure you research and choose your accommodation carefully.

How much does a luxury safari cost in Tanzania?

The Tanzania luxury safari costs are highly variable. But an all-inclusive luxury safari in Tanzania can cost at least US$450 to US$600 per person per day. The coast will increase to around US$950 per person per day – if you stay in small top-of-the-range luxury lodges and camps. What you pay for your luxury Tanzania safari depends on just how exclusive you want your holiday to be. Other cost factors are the parks you include in your Tanzania safari itinerary, and whether you travel in high, low or mid-season.

What is included in a Tanzania luxury safari?

A Tanzania luxury tour usually includes domestic flights and road transport, as well as game drives, other Tanzania safari activities and the associated guides and park fees.

Your accommodation on a full-board basis is typically included too. Some Tanzania luxury safari lodges and exclusive camps also include laundry and non-premium drinks like coffee, tea, soft drinks, local beer and house wine. Besides souvenirs and other personal purchases, the most obvious exclusion from most luxury Tanzania safari quotes is tips. These can add up quickly in Tanzania as tipping is widely practiced, so you are advised to carry enough cash to cover it.

Do all Tanzania Luxury Safaris include the Serengeti?

The answer is No. Travel logistics mean most Tanzania safari packages, luxury or otherwise, concentrate on just one of the three different safari circuits. The Serengeti is almost invariably the key destination of any Tanzania Northern circuit safari package. Northern circuit tours also typically include the Ngorongoro Crater and some, or all, of Arusha, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks. Safaris to Tanzania’s Southern and Western safari circuits rarely include the Serengeti.
