East African lodges are usually imaginatively designed and mostly built of ‘bricks and mortar’. They are structured and can accommodate a large number of people.
This type of safari accommodation is often found in remote locations and provides you with the creature comforts you’d expect from a hotel.
Similar to lodges in the number of guests they can accommodate, tented lodges consist of permanently pitched tents. They give you a chance to sleep under canvas but are equipped with en suite toilets and hot showers.
Smaller than lodges and tented lodges, tented camps are usually privately managed and intimate, with the emphasis on service and attention to detail. Furnished beautifully and built into the surroundings their simplicity and style make tented camps some of the most expensive safari residences in Africa.
Private Camping Safari
Private Camping Safaris in East Africa are extremely efficient and well organized. Your private camp is erected in a game-rich wilderness area; tents are large and luxurious with simple but adequate ensuite facilities; staff are sent ahead to attend to your every need and prepare your camp accommodation.
Igloo Type Tents
Igloo tents are used on a small number of our safaris. These are basic dome-shaped tents and are not for the faint hearted. Expect to sleep on ground sheets or simple camp beds. The camp might be erected in a public camp site where there would be communal ablution facilities
