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

Our group of more than 20 woman were all so appreciative of the professionalism of Nature Discovery. It was evident during some of our safaris that other operators were not as respectful of the wildlife and were close to running down animals to get a spot “up front and center”. Our drivers were extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife as well as the many species of birds. We so enjoyed their wonderful attitudes and their sense of humor was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend using Nature Discovery for any adventures you may want to explore while in Tanzania.

Amazing service and wonderful guides! The knowledge and friendliness of the guides was instrumental in making our safari more than we could have imagined! I will recommend without hesitation!

We saw 37 species of mammal (including the Big 5), 240+ species of bird and various assorted reptiles and plants. The scenery was epic.

Japhet, our driver/guide, was superb. He knew we wanted to see as many birds as possible and he tried his best to accommodate the ‘Ndege’ spotting as well as finding lots of mammals. Rather than race to the next mammal sighting, taking time for us to see the birds greatly enhanced our enjoyment. Lake Manyara was an awesome experience, thousands of birds, and Tarangire was excellent, especially along the River.

The photo opportunities were amazing – I took over 7500 pictures (I’ve attached a few)!
