Experience East Africa has extensive connections with hundreds of hotels, lodges and house owners in East Africa. We can arrange for groups to stay at luxury boutique hotels with a Trip Advisor rating of excellent or private gated houses for groups looking to stick to a budget... and of course everything else in between!
Booking a trip to East Africa isn’t like booking a Mediterranean summer holiday and the price of each component of our trips can vary (sometimes significantly) between one trip and the next, from the flights, to the accommodation, to the transportation. But our aim is always to secure the highest quality accommodation we can within the prices we’ve given on our set trips (see 2018 trips, 2019 trips & 2020 trips). Sometimes this can mean a luxury boutique hotel and other times it can mean a private self-catered house or possibly something in between. Either way, all the accommodation is bed & breakfast board, safe, secure, comfortable as we aim to deliver the highest quality possible for the price on each respective trip.
Although the average trip to East Africa costs more than a typical European holiday due in most part to flight prices, the cost of living in East Africa is very cheap indeed so the savings on spending money (even if you don't hold back) compared with a typical summer holiday, are extreme!! A can or bottle of coke/fanta/7up can cost between 20p-30p and during our most recent trip, a 3 course meal at a 5* Tanzania hotel was just £15 with most people spending just £200 across the entire 10 day trip (gifts for family and friends included!!).
Our accommodation range:
- Trip Advisor Excellent
- Trip Advisor Very Good
- Trip Advisor Average
- Private House
If you’re “creating your own trip” you can request any type of accommodation you wish and we will book accordingly in close consultation with you concerning every detail of your trip. Alternatively when booking as a group you can set your budget with your requirements and we’ll endeavour to build the trip keeping within your budget.
Please note: The accommodation choice for a Kilimanjaro Climb is determined by route not preference... Marangu is A-frame huts and Machame is tents.
