Safari accommodations

Combination of tented camps and lodges

Comfort and service in the wild

Makasa takes the view that your accommodations are just as important as the safari itself. That is why we make sure that the accommodation we book for you is of excellent standard. Virtually all accommodations are built according to the same principle, in a central location, with a partly open restaurant surrounded by a varying number of guest rooms sleeping two or more people. Each room has its own bathroom facilities. What they all share in common is the incomparable, unique safari atmosphere. The rooms are decorated with natural materials and colours, with romantic mosquito nets draped over large beds with soft and comfortable duvets and lovely crisp linens. Imagine watching the sun set over the breathtaking landscape, or chatting by the fire al fresco, under the stars. These memories will last you a lifetime. At night, you will sleep like a baby, and if you don’t, you can listen to the orchestra of the wilderness. Can you hear the elephants, the lions or the hyenas? Dinner and breakfast offer a wide choice of African and western dishes, usually served as a buffet. More and more accommodations feature swimming pools. 

Tented Camps

Tented camps are characterized by their semipermanent character. After a few seasons, they can be relocated for better game viewing. Their structures are relatively simpler than those of the hotels and lodges, but they offer maximum comfort nevertheless. The guest accommodations have zip-out canvas walls, but that is where any comparison with an ordinary tent ends. They have wooden floors, amazingly comfortable beds, and excellent bathroom facilities. The tented camps have an authentic African, adventurous appeal. These are great places to connect with nature.

Hotels and Lodges

The hotels and lodges are located at a permanent site and designed to offer you maximum comfort and luxury. For a while, you will feel like the king of Africa! Some hotels even take luxury to the extreme, running a hot tub full of bubbles and having it ready and waiting for you when you return from a game drive, the path to it sprinkled with rose petals. These hotels usually offer à la carte dining. If you are looking to indulge yourself with a very special treat, these hotels are perfect for you. And if you are spoilt for choice and find it hard to choose, you can simply decide to opt for a mix of tented camps, lodges, and hotels.

Excellent & unforgettable
We chose a nice mixture of Lodges and Tented Camps. All were equipped quite well; the service was amazing, and the food was also very good. We had amazing and truly unforgettable days thanks to Makasa.

Amazing safari!
All the accommodation we stayed at was wonderful, especially the tented camp in the middle of the Serengeti- giraffes would roam right through the camp so you really felt like you were camping in the wilderness.
