Where to stay while in Tanzania
Accomodation in Tanzania varies ranging from luxurious game lodges in game-filled national parks, heritage buildings in the winding alleys of Stone Town, sprawling resorts and rustic beach huts lining in both Zanzibar’s and mainland beaches of Dar es salaam and other coast areas , and extending down-budget all the way to a plethora of middling mid-range hotels and the cheap, rough-around-the-edges guest houses.
There are number of accomodation types including Hotels, camps, lodges, resorts and homestay.
The public campsites are found in many of the national parks. Some have standard facilities, including taps, toilets and firewood; others are more basic with just a cleared space to park a vehicle and pitch a tent. Permits for camping in the parks must be paid for along with entry to each park. It is advisable to check the prices and site procedure before arrival. A list of public and private campsites is available from the Tanzania National Parks (www.tanzaniaparks.com).
