Lodge safaris are for the discerning traveller who wishes to experience Eastern Africa’s wilderness in comfort and ease. During the day, you will be out in the bush exploring the wilderness of Tanzania and in the evenings you will enjoy all the amenities your lodge or tented camp has to offer.
Some lodges are inside the national parks and are unfenced. You will be escorted to your room by an armed guard. The standard of accommodation varies considerably, from rustic bush camps, sometimes tented, to luxury lodges with the character of upmarket hotels. Unlike hotels or pensions, which typically consist of houses with many rooms, the dwellings in lodges are often in separate buildings with a bedroom, a bathroom, a terrace and sometimes a small kitchen. The set is closed to ensure the safety of tourists.
The luxury of a custom tour allows one to choose to spend more or less time at a particular site and to end the day when they so please. Add to that the undivided attention of ones private guide.
After an exciting day of game drives, seeing animals and being in nature, you will arrive at your lodge or tented camp. Here you will be greeted with a welcome drink and settle in your room or private tent. Take a shower to wash off the dust and prepare for supper.
Before dinner you can mingle with other guests in the communal area and refresh yourself with a drink. Exchange stories of the day’s sights and settle down to the relaxed atmosphere of the dining area. Lodges often have well-stocked bars where drinks range from imported wines and beer to some stronger alcoholic options. Dinner can be a delicious 3-course menu or buffet with a great selection and variety to choose from. At the time of booking please do notify us of any dietary requirements so we can relay this to the lodges.
Lodge safaris are available as group safaris with scheduled departure dates or as private safari. If you are a solo traveller or if you prefer touring with fellow travellers in a small group of maximum 7 people, then a group safari will be the right choice for you.
