safari lodges, tented lodges and luxury tented camps

Safari Lodges, Permanent Tented Lodges and Luxury Tented Camps vary dramatically in size and style.  Most lodges, especially in Kenya and Tanzania accommodate large numbers of people, with some properties having 60+ rooms. These lodges usually have complete facilities such as conference rooms, business centre and swimming pools.  Lodges are typically located in or outside national parks and reserves, generally not private wildlife conservancies, however there are some exceptions.

Safari Lodge options vary greatly, from three star to luxurious five star plus. Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all.

Permanent Tented Lodges, as the name suggests, are a mix of luxury tents and solid structure. They are built on a concrete or wooden bases with canvas tent sides.  

Luxury Tented Camps are generally considered the best for a true safari experience. Most luxury tented camps are small with between 5 and 20 tents. All luxury tented safari camps feature, spacious canvas rooms with real beds and private, en-suite bathroom facilities (including full plumbing).They often have butler/waiter service and dining is comparable with fine restaurants, with 3 and 4 course meals. These camps are sold on a fully inclusive meal and activity plan, often with local house beverages included.
