Lodge and Permanent Camp Safaris

Tanzania has an impressive variety and standard of safari lodges and permanent tented camps, ranging from 5 star luxury to basic hostel-type accommodation. These are permanent structures in fixed locations (as opposed to our mobile camps which can be set up anywhere). Whether you require rose petal strewn baths with champagne breakfasts, or just a roof over your head and clean water, we can help you choose the best accommodation to match your interests and budget.

We live and work in Tanzania and we travel as much as we can, getting first-hand experience of camps and lodges. Unlike many safari companies,we are not aligned with certain chains of lodges. What this means is we are free to make recommendations for the sole purpose of giving you the best safari experience possible. There’s no point in staying in a wonderful lodge if it’s hours away from the best seasonal wildlife viewing. And you don’t want to stay in a lodge simply because a company is obligated to fill beds.

Email us to ask questions about specific accommodations or to start planning your safari. We can send you sample itineraries and prices based on the time of year you want to travel, or dive right in and start building a trip for you based on your interests and budget.

Best Responsible Guide Company 2019

We had a fantastic safari with Japhet (we did three safaris with him). He is a perfect guide with an excellent eye to spot animals and who takes all the time to wait for something special. In 12 days in Serengeti and Ngorongoro we saw one female cheetah with her cub trying to chase two times a gazelle; one female leopard playing with her cub, one lionness catching a zebra; more leopards in the trees with their kill…..We recommend strongly this agency for the safaris.

ROUQUETTE France

Vraiment très bien : un chauffeur/guide prévenant, efficace, ponctuel, sympathique, parlant bien le français, des hébergements au top, conforme au « contrat » négocié depuis la France. On recommande à 100%. C’était Génial

Our trip far exceeded our expectations!! From the moment we landed until the time we had to leave Tanzania, our every need was met by Nature Discovery!

The accommodations, the meals, our guides, our activities and game drives were amazing and left me speechless! Ailsa and her team put a trip of a lifetime together that none of us will forget and I will highly recommend Nature Discovery.
