Listed below are hotels/lodges/resorts that the safari tour operator can accomodate for you.

  • Arusha Coffee Lodge, Tanzania
  • Located on the outskirts of Arusha and hidden amongst one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations, this Lodge is the perfect place to relax and relieve stress before or after an exciting but possibly tiring safari. The lodge is full of sensory experiences as you can enjoy the aroma of the morning brew emanating from the main Plantation House as breakfast is being prepared, or simply watch the industrious coffee pickers gathering in the harvest.
  • The location and design of the 30 ‘Plantation Houses’ (ie, rooms), including 12 Suites all embrace the ‘coffee theme’, this is particularly evident in the suites where ‘bean partitions’ have constructed and divide the main bedroom from the remainder of the suite. The styling continues into the bathroom, where even the wash basin has a ‘bean theme’ - a delightful resin basin which features coffee beans infused. The Main Plantation House hosts an ‘a la carte’ restaurant, an intimate bar and a cosy lounge. Furthermore all areas possess fire places which create a warm and comforting ambience at night. Other amenities include an intimate swimming pool and a garden terrace. The warm atmosphere within the Lodge is further supported by the friendly and personable staff that help creating a memorable experience.

  • Oliver’s Camp, Tanzania
  • Located around 2-3 hours game drive away from the main gate into Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s Camp is located in the exclusive southern region and offers a prime safari experience. This area is known for its large elephant herds and baobab trees, but also houses large quantities of lions, cheetah and leopard.
  • The 10 tents, which are well spaced out ensuring a feeling of intimacy, offer a large deck overlooking the Minyonyo floodplains below and wonderful outdoor showers with running hot and cold water. Inside, the tents are spacious and offer plumbed toilet and bathroom facilities.
  • The main lodge is brimming with history and is very cosy, yet maintains that rustic, ‘bush’ feel.
  • Each night, the bar is shifted down by the boma (fire area) where guests regale stories of their daily experiences over a G+T. As described by experienced safari-goers "Oliver’s is the real Africa”.
  • ‘Fly-camping’ is also possible at Oliver’s Camp, whereby guests will hike out to their very own ‘fly camp’ where they’ll spend the night under the African night sky.
  • One of best things about Oliver’s is the walking safaris and night game drives (complete with night vision goggles!) which you can do here. This is definitely a highlight of any East African experience.

  • Dunia Camp, Tanzania
  • Dunia camp is a relatively small camp, with just 8 tents and is considered ‘semi-permanent’ – meaning that while it is completely mobile, it remains in the same location for most of the year.
  • Each of the spacious tents feature an en-suite bathroom and private veranda overlooking the Moru Kopjes in the prime wildlife areas of central and southern Serengeti; Dunia Camp combines elements of style and luxury with an incredible wildlife experience. The Great Migration generally passes through this area twice each year, but it is especially known for its abundance of lion, leopard and cheetah and the rare chance to see the illustrious black rhino. The tents feature either large, king sized double or single beds, with an enclosed bathroom, flushing toilet and ‘bucket’ showers. A favourite experience at Dunia Camp is watching the spectacular sunrise over the African landscape from the comfort of a warm bed. Yes – you can literally see the sunrise from your bed inside the tent!

  • Sayari Camp, Tanzania
  • A spectacular 15 tented camp on the Mara River in the northern part of the Serengeti, Sayari, Camp has 2 "wings", one with 9 tents and one with 6 tents. Each ‘wing’ has a separate mess and dining to ensure intimacy and personal service. Each of the 15 luxury guest tents are very spacious and have a comfortable king size bed (twins also possible) and a large, private veranda, overlooking the Serengeti. The en-suite bathrooms have flush toilets, a double sink, shower and beautiful bath with a view. After game drives, guests can relax and continue admiring the view of Africa’s most famous ‘endless plains’ from the spectacular infinity pool or choose the privacy of their veranda, the warmth of the fire place, or the comfort of the atmospheric library, bar or lounge. Open vehicle game driving & bird watching, walking safaris in the morning or afternoon with a walking guide and ranger are all possible. This unspoilt area is a spectacular wildlife destination. The Tanzanian Mara River area is one of the greatest secrets of Africa, with large concentrations of animals year-round - like the Masai Mara on the Kenyan side of the border, but without the large volume of vehicles. Due to the limited traffic in the area, off-road game-driving is possible in some of the best game-driving areas around the camp.
  • The Migration usually roams around and in the area from mid-July to November each year, and during this time lucky guests could get to see the famous Mara River crossings of zebra and wildebeest.Outside the Migration season, there is still plenty to see: the area hosts many resident cats, elephants, zebra and wildebeest, herds of topi and lesser known animals such as the bat-eared fox.
