Where to stay in Tanzania for the best view of its safaris

The thriving wilderness that resides in Africa is something you can’t find elsewhere in the world. More specifically, Tanzania’s scenery goes hand in hand with its fauna — so it’s where to stay in Tanzania that matters for the best savannah experience.

Its most popular attraction is the Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game. You’ll find elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and rhinos — the most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot.

To fulfil that ultimate sub-Saharan fantasy, here’s where to stay in Tanzania for an exploration in plush comforts.
