For visitors who want the amenities of home and the adventure of a safari experience, safari lodges are a popular choice and make up the majority of safaris to Tanzania.
Traditional tribal dances, called ngomas, may take place on certain nights, and live music, theme nights, or other entertainment is often provided during the week. During the morning and afternoons, visitors set off on game drives with their safari guide and driver, returning for tea, drinks, and dinner when the sun begins to set. Extras such as hot-air ballooning, night game drives, nature walks, sunset drinks, and other activities are also on offer at various properties.
When staying at lodges, all meals and services are provided for guests by the lodge property, and extra additions to the safari can be arranged. Breakfast and often lunch is served as a buffet, with dinner a more formal, sit-down occasion.
All in all, the lodge safari experience is a comfortable and accessible way to see the various game parks and nature reserves of Tanzania. Every budget and taste is accounted for. All over Tanzania, from the Serengeti to the remote stretches of southern coastline, lodges await to welcome visitors from around the world.
