Afrikan Wildlife Safaris Ltd takes the selection of our accommodations very seriously, as the places we stay can often add to the delight and authenticity of a nature travel experience. We generally choose the best accommodations available that are close to wildlife and wild places. We won’t, for example, travel for miles to a fancy hotel if there is a simple and classic accommodation that will place us where “Wildlife is”. In fact, we mostly choose accommodations that have been specifically designed to place us in wild places in a comfortable and authentic manner, often including such features as verandas overlooking the African veld, or special viewing platforms for watching wildlife. All of our accommodations have private toilet and shower facilities unless otherwise noted. Triple and quad accommodations are not always available but can be arranged on special request. Double accommodations have twin beds or one bed that sleeps two, such as a double, queen or king.
Single rooms are subject to a supplemental charge and cannot always be guaranteed due to limited numbers of rooms. Therefore tour members in single rooms may have to share accommodation, although generally not available to lodges, may be requested.
