Serengeti lodges or camps: which is best?

Whether you choose to stay in a luxury Serengeti lodge or you opt for a tented camp, you can be assured that you will be treated to a comfortable, safe and,  most importantly, unforgettable experience in the Serengeti. Serengeti lodges are permanent structures in the national parks. Often located on vast land areas, they offer privacy and unbeatable comfort for those looking for a more luxurious taste of the Serengeti. 

Tented camps also offer a luxurious experience – albeit with a few more basic facilities. All Serengeti camping accommodation with Tanzania Specialist comes with a private tent and en suite bathroom facilities. The walls may be thin, but that offers a deeply immersive experience of the Tanzanian wild.
