Luxury safari camps in Tanzania

Best places to stay in Tanzania

There is no place that does safari luxury better than Africa, and Tanzania is no exception. From rustic bush camps to elegant lodges and luxury tented camps, we offer a carefully curated portfolio of safari accommodation. Most are small, intimate properties that accommodate between 14 and 30 guests. What they all have in common are outstanding locations, including their proximity to good game areas. Many are located along rivers or on hilltops, making the most of the awe-inspiring scenery. Guests can expect first-class service, good food, premium amenities and the luxury of an intimate and exclusive location away from public areas.
