Accommodations that we love and recommend

When you plan your safari adventure, deciding on the right accommodation for your budget is important.
If you seek an authentic safari experience with minimal amenities and close wildlife encounters, campsites are the ideal choice.
For those seeking comfort and a blend of wilderness and luxury, safari lodges provide a perfect balance.
And if luxury and extravagance are your top priorities, luxury hotels offer an unforgettable safari experience.

We have personally tested these hotels, lodges and camps. We will be happy to advice you.

The main difference is in the costs:
Safari Eco Budget Campsites are available for safari rates of $250-275 per person per day.
For Comfort mid range safari lodges you must count on a safari rate of $300-$400 per person per day.
If you prefer a safari in luxury style, $525-$600 per day per person is normal for this type of safari’s.
There is another level of safari’s where the sky is the limit, the Extra Luxury segment, which can cost $1025 or more per person per day.
