Below is a description of some hotels we use in Tanzania. During a safari in Tanzania we regularly use the so-called tented camps. A tented camp does not have much to do with camping. The walls are made of tent fabric but it has normal beds and a separate bathroom with shower and toilet. At night you can hear the animal sounds, but you’re absolutely safe in the tent. Some of the camps even have a pool.
