Tanzania Safari Accommodation

We believe in smaller and more intimate Tanzania safari lodge styles. Joica Tours recommends safari lodges that are of a mass tourist nature and only in certain areas do hotels have more than 15 rooms. There are a limited number of large properties that reflect resort style accommodation; these are generally found on the island of Zanzibar and not on the safari circuits.

Many of the camps we recommend will have no more than 8 rooms or tents (limiting the maximum amount of people to 16) as this leads to an interpersonal and engaging safari experience Safari lodges in Tanzania vary greatly from a three to five star level, with the smaller and more exclusive properties being more costly. Staffing at most Tanzanian camps and lodges are run by local Tanzanians - warm in nature and spirit

Lodges

Safari lodges are larger, permanent structures built of brick and mortar. Lodges are smaller than hotels but have the same full amenities and similar facilities such as restaurants and swimming pools. As mentioned above, the lodges range from three star levels, to ultimate five star luxury.

Tented Camps

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.
 

Camping
There has been a number of great increase in the number of organized campsites in recent years and there are now very few established tourist centres where you can’t pitch a tent in a guarded site with good facilities.

When staying in a tented camp, guests have the opportunity to truly connect with nature. Both kinds of tents are situated in rich game viewing areas. Sleeping under canvas offers an enhanced, immersive Tanzania safari experience of Africa
