Top 5 Budget Safari Lodges and Tented Camps in Tanzania

Story by Adventures Within Reach

A safari in Tanzania can still be "within reach" of all travelers.  Here are our 5 favorite budget accommodations on safari in Tanzania.  These are offered on our Group Tanzania Safaris and also on our 5-day Private Safaris.

Endoro Lodge

This is often the first stop on safari as it is near both Lake Manyara and Tarangire.  It is built on a hillside with nice views.  The standard rooms are very spacious, but there are also budget rooms, which are smaller and less expensive.  It has a swimming pool, and they offer guided walks of the farm.

Serengeti Halisi Camp & Lake Natron Halisi Camp

The Serengeti Halisi Camp is a mobile tented camp located in the central Serengeti (Seronera) area most of the year, and then it is located in the Ndutu area December-March when the migration comes through.  The camp offers standard tents and smaller, less expensive tents.

On a longer safari (7 or more days), you can visit the Lake Natron Halisi Camp.

Rhino Lodge

This lodge has a great location for the price.  It is the least expensive option inside the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.  It is not right on the crater rim, but it is right across the street, which gives you quick access to the Crater in the morning.

Kudu Lodge

If the Endoro Lodge or Rhino Lodge are full, we will use the Kudu Lodge as a second option.  It is also very nice, but the location isn't quite as convenient, and some of the rooms are small.  It has a fun swimming pool and fun bar area.
