During your safari or holiday in Tanzania you can choose different options for the accommodations (tented camps, lodges or camping) depending on your preferences and budget. The accommodations can be inside or outside the park.
Tanzania is a country rich in fruits and vegetables, during safari you eat pasta and rice as well as lamb, chicken, pork, fish and beef. Don't miss the soups in the evening. Breakfast is usually with eggs, bacon and sausages, but there are also cookies, toast and jam.
There are several possible accommodation during the safari, the most luxurious to the most basic. We can classify the accommodation options in the lodge / tented camps in 3 categories: Economy, Plus and Luxury, then for the more adventurous there is a camping safari with mobile tents. Our advice is a mix of lodges and tented camps inside the parks or in a strategic position for your safari.
The tented camps have permanent tents as big as a hotel room with an attached bathroom and are furnished with a proper bed, bedside tables, coffee table and chairs. The hot water for the shower is usually brought "on demand." There is electricity but usually miss the hairdryer. The evening will light a bonfire around which guests will tell stories and sightings listening to the sounds of animals in the neighborhood
The lodge rooms have masonry, restaurant and reception, similar to hotels that we all know, often with garden and pool. Electricity at night and wi-fi. It's the choice usually recommended for those who want all the comforts like at home.
Camping with mobile tents
The camping safari is a bit rough and you have to be used to it. We use safari tents, high enough to be able to stand in and provide mattresses, tables and chairs. Definitely bring your own sleeping bag. All campsites have showers and services, sometimes there is no hot water and electricity. The cooker will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Mineral water and soft drinks, refrigerator, binoculars and inverter to charge the batteries available on the jeep during the photo safari. Better bring an adapter plug UK type. Bring a flashlight for camping safari with mobile tents.
