For visitors who want the amenities of home and the adventure of a safari experience, lodge safaris are a popular choice, and make up the majority of safaris to Tanzania. Lodges offer traditional hotel-style rooms in a comfortable and controlled environment, and allow hesitant visitors to feel secure during their stay in and around game parks and nature reserves. All of the national parks and most of the game reserves have numerous lodges based in and around their boundaries for visitors to choose from, and the variety caters for every budget and taste. Options include everything on the spectrum, from high-end luxury lodges -- tree house rooms high in the forest canopies, highland cottages with feather beds and fireplaces, all-natural beach bungalows on hidden island retreats -- to more lower-budget options like fully furnished safari tents, equipped with hot showers, comfortable beds, and a breathtaking view.
experience come alive.
When staying at lodges at either Wildlife lodges, Sopa Lodges or Serena Lodges, all meals and services are provided for guests by the lodge property, and extra additions to the safari can be arranged. Breakfast and often lunch is served as a buffet, with dinner a more formal, sit-down occasion. Traditional tribal dances, called ngomas, may take place on certain nights, and live music, theme nights, or other entertainment is often provided during the week. During the morning and afternoons, visitors set off on game drives with their safari guide and driver, returning for tea, drinks, and dinner when the sun begins to set. Extras such as hot-air ballooning, night game drives, nature walks, sunset drinks, and other activities are also on offer at various properties.
All in all, the lodge safari experience is a comfortable and accessible way to see the various game parks and nature reserves of Tanzania. Every budget and taste is accounted for. All over Tanzania, from the Serengeti to the remote stretches of southern coastline, lodges await to welcome visitors from around the world.

Ravi Chana told us:
My Family of two adults & two Children (aged 15 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed our safari experience booked via Bobby Tours and Safaris in August 2010. The company were most helpful with making arrangements to suit our needs and to accomodate what we wanted within the short space of time we had. They were able to advise and arrange a 4 day safari taking in Lake Manyara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Due to late booking on our part the Lodges were not available so we opted for a basic camping trip (which I would thoroughly recommend, as long as you do not mind basic wash facilities). Despite not having any camping experience, or equipment, we really enjoyed the camping experience. Bobby tours had organised all the equipment for us within the price, so we had no worries about carrying our own equipment. The tour company provided us with a car, driver (Umari) and a cook (Macho). Umari was knowledgeable about the local areas, national parks and wildlife, and was very accomodating whenever we needed anything. Macho was great with providing us with Breakfast, Lunch, afternoon tea and Dinner (we even requested him to make us the local staple food of \'Ugali\' which he duely made). All in all this was a great family safari experience, and one which we would recommend to any family that is looking to have fun and enjoy three of the most beautiful places on earth. We would also recommend the use of Booby Tours & safaris. If you need to talk to this company give Jackson Adams or Kassim a call. We found they were able to answer any questions and arrange local hotels and flights too.
