Top 4 luxury lodges in Tanzania

Tanzania is a place where African adventures come to life, as long-legged giraffes roam the plains and lionesses stalk fleet-footed prey across the Serengeti. It is a destination synonymous with safari holidays and there’s no reason not to enjoy the luxurious comforts of a colonial-styled stay after a morning, or afternoon, expedition into the wild. If you’re asking yourself where to go on safari while in Tanzania, the following properties are highly recommended – not only for the luxury safari holiday experience they provide, but for the unique locations and exceptional scenery you’ll remember for years to come:

Serengeti Migration Camp

The gently billowing tent flaps of Serengeti Migration Camp are a welcome sight on your arrival; where soft leather chairs beg to be curled up on with a glass of Champagne, and hot showers are a welcome reprieve from time spent on the road.

During daylight hours the sundeck, wrap-around balconies, swimming pool, tented lounges and restaurant, offer views of the bush, undulating hills and gently flowing river; at night the roped walkways are lit by gas-styled lanterns. Game drives are available in the morning and afternoons, while private candlelit dinners along the riverbank can be catered for on request. The spacious tents invite you to unwind in style in the evenings, and at any point of the day or night you can spot the half-submerged hippos and calves which wander the shoreline of the Grumeti River.

&Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge

With an enviable setting high on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge leads to a world of adventure just beyond your doorstep and a view of the plains that is hard to beat.

The spacious airy rooms are inspired by the Masai mud-and-stick homes, though the similarities end there, as beyond the rustic exterior lie four-poster beds, hand-woven carpets and a chandelier-lit en suite bathroom with a deep bath, towelling gown, heavenly scented toiletries and rich drapes over the windows. A walk around the lodge will reveal gentle-natured zebra grazing on the grass, with game drives and game walks available throughout the day and visits to the nearby Masai village.

Singita Faru Faru

Blending natural materials into a retro-modern haven, Singita Faru Faru offers a completely unique experience, with rooms that have floor to ceiling windows that allow you to take in the endless sights of the savannah and forest.

The viewing deck showcases the nearby waterhole that often teams with life, while rangers are on hand to take you on bushwalks where you can track and discover game; though the comforts of a game drive are a welcome reprieve out of the direct sun. The infinity pool allows you to unwind in nature, as you beat the heat of the day, and the library, bar, lounge and spa offer a relaxing retreat after the excitement of spotting wildlife.

&Beyond Klein’s Camp

Nestled below the protective Kuka Hills lies &Beyond Klein’s Camp; a prime position as it offers year-round game viewing. It is one of the most exceptional spots to see the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra.

For meals, make use of the main dining area or pamper yourself by booking a private bush dinner at sunset, before setting off with the rangers on a thrilling night game drive where you will not only listen to the night coming to life around you, but you will see exactly which wildebeest are bellowing, and discover prides of slumbering lions. Long after the last bird call has faded away, you’ll return to your airy room and its four poster bed, although the bar will certainly be open for those who’d like a last night cap before retiring for the day.
