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.

Voyage vraiment fabuleux.
Agence très sérieuse, très à l’écoute, qui prend le temps de vous poser toutes les questions nécessaires pour bien comprendre le projet de voyage de chacun avant de vous proposer un circuit. Sylvain et Cécile ont été très réactifs lors du changement de vol imposé quelques jours avant notre départ, ils trouvent une solution efficace très rapidement.
Le safari correspondait à nos attentes, notre guide Henry a été parfait, très compétent sur la faune, la flore et bien plus, très prudent, à l’écoute de nos envies et humainement adorable.
Merci encore pour toutes ces émotions que vous nous avaient fait vivre! À bientôt pour de nouvelles aventures!

Wow – five stars hardly tells the story of the outstanding experience we had using Nature Discovery as our safari expert. I was amongst 23 professional women from the US, Europe and Asia and we had the experience of a lifetime. This is largely due to Nature Discovery’s extremely well thought out game plan of where, when and why, and impeccably organized and delivered service. Four different safari parks, two days in the bush with the local Massai tribe, a coffee plantation, several unique but spectacular camp accommodations, and outstanding guides (4 jeeps and 4 guides) made for a blow your mind experience overall. As I said on facebook – I went for the animals (which were spectacular), but I fell in love with the people. A wonderful outcome thanks to Nature Discovery. I / we can’t wait to come back!
