Hotels in Tanzania Game Parks

Sayari Camp, in eastern Tanzania-opened in 2005, it was recently given an extravagant makeover and is now one of the top five-star camps in the remote northern Serengeti.

Suites inspired by Maasai mud and stick manyattas with French touches (silk curtains; leather chairs) along the rim of a volcano.

Rooms have prehistoric wall motifs in this eco-lodge built of river rock and covered in vines. 

Secluded hotel with African interiors set in an acacia grove overlooking the plains.

Shingled tree houses in the bush; the only lodge within Lake Manyara National Park. 

Doubles From $1,900, all-inclusive

The property sits deep in a 1,000-square-mile national park among Tanzania’s central highlands. The look would appeal to anyone harboring fantasies of Arabian nights: arched bedouin tents, kilim rugs, Turkish brass lamps, Oriental throw pillows.

Dotting a tree-lined ridge in the Serengeti, the whimsical mushroom-shaped buildings of the Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge blend into their surroundings.

Series of brightly decorated circular buildings on a cliff overlooking a lake frequented by migrating birds. 

Room to Book:

Tanzania's 17,000-square-mile Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest in the world. With a dozen postmodern dwellings on the palm-lined banks of the Rufji River, the Selous offers the chance to observe hippos and elephants from a riverboat.

Edwardian-style tented camps on a ridge in the western Serengeti.
