Tanzania is, and always has been, a safe and peaceful country. It’s often referred to as “the Switzerland of Africa” because it’s calm and stable.
Tanzania is more than just safe. It’s beautiful! Filled with world-renowned landmarks and incredible wildlife, it’s a country you’ll fall in love with at first sight.
In various destinations around the world, we have highlighted examples of exceptional accommodations that set new standards for aesthetics and responsible tourism. These properties reflect our own company values by emphasizing community involvement and the preservation of cultural heritage, protection of natural resources, and sustainability, both in practice and design. They also combine outstanding comfort and service, natural beauty, and functionality. Where you stay along the way can greatly enhance any journey. Options abound, but these are some of our favorites.

Enjoy top-notch service from the camp staff, delicious meals and comfortable amenities in your tent. Sit back with a cocktail or a book in the lounge tent, by the campfire or on your private veranda.
