Unique Accommodation Options

One of Africa’s prime tourist destinations, the infrastructure of East Africa is well tried and tested; and the range of accommodation is comprehensive indeed. The spirit of Africa is also exemplified by its tradition of hospitality. Few people in the world are as welcoming as the Kenyans, Ugandans and Tanzanians. The accommodation offered may fall into any of these broad categories:

Safari lodges: located within the national parks and reserves, these offer charming rooms, outdoor swimming pool areas, atmospheric dining, ‘sundowners’, game drives, guided walks and cultural visits.

Tented Camps: Presented in the time-honoured ‘Out of Africa’ style, these special luxury tented camps have little to do with ‘camping’ and everything to do with atmosphere. They are typically surrounded by widely spaced permanent ‘tents’ with thatched roofs, in-built ensuite bathrooms and luxury furniture.

City/town hotels and Beach resorts: East Africa’s city hotels as well as beach resorts offer extremely high standards of service and are comparable to the best hotels anywhere in the world. Many offer nightly African cultural entertainment, especially on the coast.

Private ‘Fly’ Camps: Tailor-made to our client’s specifications, they feature luxury tents, ‘safari’ kitchens, beautifully-presented central ‘mess tents’, and central campfire and ‘sun downer’ areas. Bathroom facilities vary from camp to camp.

Mind, body and spirit spas: Typically these will include; a gymnasium, an aerobics studio, a juice bar, steam and sauna, sun-deck and pool, tennis, squash, table-tennis and volleyball.
