There are many different styles of safari and as many different types of accommodation. To help you choose the right accommodation type for your safari adventure, we’ve put together a short guide to the different types of accommodation available.
Safari lodges are predominantly of permanent construction and built with stone or wood. They are typically smaller than hotels, but usually have similar facilities such as ensuite bathrooms restaurants, swimming pools, gyms, air conditioning, libraries, etc. They are a great option for first time safari goers who are nervous about sleeping in close proximity to wild animals, as you have four solid walls around you.
Tented Safari Camps
Safari tents are large, comfortable and big enough to walk around in. They will be fully equipped with proper beds and furniture. The majority have adjoining bathrooms and flush loos. Some of the more remote camps will use long drop loos and safari style bucket showers. Tented safari camps will have central dining and bar areas and some even have swimming pools.
Mobile Tented Camps
A mobile tented safari is a camping style trip where tents are set up for you in remote, beautiful settings and in areas to maximise game viewing. Actual accommodation varies from simple dome tents to luxurious, classic style safari tents. In the majority of cases there won’t be running water and facilities will comprise of bucket showers and long or short drop loos. Meals will be taken outside with supper under the stars. They are a great option for experienced safari goers who are look for a new and different safari experience.
