Semi Luxury Accommodation

Uniquely different and scenically located, the East African luxury safari lodges are located within the national parks, reserves and conservancy areas. Presented in classic African style, this accommodation type offers charming rooms, outdoor swimming pool areas, atmospheric dining, ‘sundowners’ (within the lodge or in the surrounding scenery), game drives, guided walks and cultural visits. Semi Luxury Tented Camps, ideally located and presented in the time-honored ‘Out of Africa’ style, these semi-luxury and luxury tented lodges have little to do with ‘camping’ and everything to do with atmosphere. Usually comprising a central dining and bar area, which may be presented in the form of a central lodge, or an under canvas ‘mess’ area, they are typically surrounded by widely spaced permanent ‘tents. The tents will typically have thatched roofs, concrete or stone floors, in-built ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushed WCs, hotel-styled furniture and generator-electricity. The lodge will also typically feature a swimming pool and an external campfire area and/or game-viewing platform or water-hole with a bar. Great East African tented safari lodges and camps can be experienced on Kenya safari, Tanzania safari or while gorilla trekking on Uganda travel.

Adventure Budget camping

This is the ideal way for those who like to “rough it”. Accommodation is provided in a public campsite in a two-man tent with folding safari beds, mattresses, pillows blankets and bed sheets. The tents are spacious enough for two people and have a mesh on each window to keep off insects. The guests’ safari vehicle, invariably a 4-wheel drive (4×4), manned by a driver-guide experienced in camping and accompanied by your cook, tows a custom-built trailer carrying camping equipment and provisions. All preparations for setting up the camp are made on arrival at the campsite. The driver-guide and cook will pitch tents, cook and do cleaning. The cook prepares three meals a day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner (3-course) served on a dining table with chairs.
