Explore the top luxury safari lodges and beach hotels in Tanzania

Tanzania is one of the most famous countries for an authentic East African safari. And it's home to some of the most luxurious Tanzania hotels, safari lodges, tented camps and beach hotels you can imagine. The country is world-renowned for some of the biggest and best national parks on the continent, like the Serengeti National Park. Still, it has many other brag-worthy attractions, from Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa, the flourishing Ngorongoro Crater, and culture-rich Afro-Arab beach destinations such as the Zanzibar Archipelago.

However, it's best known for being host to part of the annual Great Wildebeest Migration. As this wildlife spectacle moves around throughout the year, it's crucial to book your safari with African Travel Experts (that's us!), who can ensure you have the best possible experience. 

We've explored this country's attractions, activities, and accommodation first-hand for you. There are many more to choose from, but here's our list of Tanzania's top five hotels and safari lodges.

How to choose the best safari lodges and tented camps for your Tanzania safari

As a major safari destination, Tanzania has some extraordinary safari lodges and tented camps on offer in the top destinations, each with its unique attractions in vastly different landscapes.  

Tanzania is world-renowned for being on the route of the Great Wildebeest Migration. And if you want to catch part of nature's greatest show, you have to choose your safari lodge or tented camp carefully.

Something new to see at every turn 

The vast open savannah plains of the Serengeti National Park has several luxury tented camps to choose from and is the perfect location from which to see the migration in action. For example, Sanctuary Kusini, the only permanent camp in the southern sector of the Serengeti. Or, if you're travelling with the family, look no further than Singita Sasakwa Lodge, with child-friendly activities to keep little ones entertained. 

Then there's the Ngorongoro Crater, offering dramatic landscapes teeming with wildlife and flourishing with unique fauna and flora. Here you can stay in the unique Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, set on the rim of this ancient caldera, making you feel like you're on top of the world – literally and figuratively!

The glimmering Lake Manyara dotted with flamingos is also a must-see. This unique location boasts a baffling diversity of landscapes and wildlife, with plenty of year-round activities to boot! Here you can choose to stay in anything from a luxury tree lodge for a different perspective, a classic safari lodge or a tented camp.

Choosing between Tanzania hotels, safari lodges and tented camps

When planning a visit to this East African country, we always suggest that you stay at a couple of different safari lodges in Tanzania to experience the wide variety of landscapes and wildlife. 
Depending on what you wish to see and do and who you're travelling with, we can help select the best safari lodge in Tanzania or a tented camp for the best possible experience. 
From solo travellers, multi-generational groups or families, and couples looking for a secluded romantic getaway, we've got the best place for you to stay!

Beach hotels, lodges and villas on some of Africa’s finest beaches

You might come to Tanzania for an authentic East African safari, but did you know that you can easily turn your bush adventure into a beach holiday? 

Off the coast of Tanzania lies the Zanzibar Archipelago, lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. The ultimate island getaway, there's accommodation to suit everyone, including luxury lodges and hotels, all-inclusive beach resorts, and private villas.

Adventure and relaxation in equal measures

What we love most about Tanzania is that you can see a little bit of everything in a single tour. If you're looking for adventure, you can explore Mount Kilimanjaro, go on a Great Migration safari in the Serengeti and explore the Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and wildlife wonderland.

Or if culture and relaxation are what makes you tick, take your pick from the vibrant Dar es Salaam, famous Stone Town, perusing the spice markets of Pemba Island, or sipping cocktails on a beach in the Zanzibar Archipelago.
