How We Rate Our Safaris

Bronze Rated Safaris

Bronze “Adventure” Tours; Bronze category is defined as camping trips for either self drive or scheduled safaris (though a tailor made safari can be made); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation with ground tents with mattresses supplied; self drive options will often include roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment is supplied. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. This is the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company - Bronze/Adventure tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers.

Silver Rated Safaris

Silver “Comfortable” category: Standard accommodation style trips with no camping (or only 1/2nights which will be indicated). Accommodation is generally 2/3* level - clean and affordable but generally without too many frills and rooms will have en-suite facilities, some will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night!

Gold Rated Safaris

Gold 3/4* A superior style accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air-conditioning or fans in the room; though “camps” are also included in this bracket though note these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities - the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets.

Platinum Rated Safaris

Platinum “Premium” tours - The most exclusive and luxurious accommodation, facilities and service on offer in the region with attention to detail - some “camps” /lodges will offer private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and offering a quality experience. Note this can still vary according to the area and that some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) particularly in Namibia etc but will be best in the area, limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary.
