Indeed, even when the ‘luxury’ element of a luxury safari is more tuned to the quality of the experience or remoteness of location in which the camp or lodge is situated, the accommodations are usually still of a very high standard. The question remains, however, what makes a luxury safari luxurious for you as an individual or group?
At Tailormade Africa we pride ourselves on being Tanzania luxury safari experts. Who are we to say so? Have a look at our independent reviews from Safari Bookings.
The days of basic safari camps in small canvas tents have become rare, so it is not always straightforward to understand what makes a “luxury” safari. For many people, “luxury” is quantified by the quality of the accommodation itself - the interior decor, service, food quality and general ambience of each safari camp or lodge.
Indeed, even when the ‘luxury’ element is more tuned to the quality of the experience or remoteness of location in which the camp or lodge is situated, the accommodations are usually still of a very lovely standard. The question remains, however, what makes a luxury safari luxurious for you as an individual or group?
Time, isolation and uniqueness of experience should all be major focal points when considering a Tanzania luxury safari as all 3 of those elements of luxury have become synonymous with modern safari travel in Tanzania and Africa. Needless to say that any luxury safari is going to be no small financial undertaking. It can be true that a fairly basic-appearing camp in an extraordinary location that delivers first-class experiences and guides can still reach the USD$850 per person / per night mark and more.
Tanzania is one of the kings of the luxury safari world where opulent accommodations, food, wine and service are concerned. Tanzania, in particular, manages to combine these with experiential safari and remoteness of location, rather gloriously too, giving you everything you could imagine and then some.
To list all the camps that we love in this category of safari type would be a bit silly as it is entirely subjective and down to your own perceptions and degrees of importance of what constitutes a luxury safari. The greatest example of this would be some clients we recently had that were very fortunate to have no budget ceiling, whom we challenged to mix in a "luxury camp" that was far off the beaten track with no wifi or cell phone signal or close proximity to any other camp or form of civilization. It was a pretty basic looking camp but was the part of the trip that resonated with them most.
The best thing to do at this point is to get in touch with us, preferably by phone, to allow us to get to know you a little and advise on the kind of luxury safari that would give you your trip of a lifetime experience.Enquire Now
