Elewana Collection

Elewana is one of several safari companies whose camps and lodges we often include in the itineraries we design for our clients.

Background information

Elewana is a well-established operator in Tanzania with a number of good camps in the north of the country, as well as the recently-acquired Kilindi on Zanzibar.

The company's ethos is to have as little impact on the environment as possible and to engage with local communities. They try to use local materials, local craftsmen and recyclable products. Each camp works closely with local community projects, and tries to employ and train the local people.

Yellow Zebra's view

Elewana offers a particularly good circuit around its properties in the north – Tarangire followed by Ngorongoro, the Serengeti and Zanzibar. They are the only company to operate this full circuit. 

Elewana's camps:

Arusha Coffee Lodge

A convenient and extremely comfortable place to stay for clients about to start, or having just finished, their safari, Arusha Coffee Lodge sits in a large working coffee plantation on the western side of Arusha, Tanzania. It is one of the best and most upmarket places to stay between Arusha airstrip and the parks.

Tarangire Treetops Lodge

Tarangire Treetops is one of northern Tanzania’s best-recognised lodges. Located just outside the border of Tarangire National Park, ‘Treetops’ is the country’s only genuine tree lodge. This hugely famous camp attracts its guests primarily due to its unique design – the main area and some of the twenty rooms are raised up into old baobab trees.

The Manor at Ngorongoro

Designed in the same style as the Cape Dutch South African farm estates of the Winelands, the Manor offers a level of luxury and comfort that is hard to find in the country. The Manor is located in the Karatu area of northern Tanzania. It is a beautiful hotel and a superb base from which to explore Rift Valley, including Ngorongoro, Manyara and the surrounding villages.

Serengeti Migration Camp

Migration Camp is a stunning tented camp in the north central Serengeti with a wonderfully remote location. It is a great camp in the peak Migration months as well as a superb year round game destination away from the crowds.

Serengeti Pioneer Camp

Serengeti Pioneer Camp is a tented luxury camp built in the mould of the famous mobile camps. The fact that the camp does not move with the herds means that Serengeti Pioneer is able to offer a much higher level of accommodation than the other mobile outfits.

Kilindi Zanzibar

Kilindi was designed to be one of the most luxurious small beach lodges in Africa and it is a lovely hotel. It's located on the north-west tip of Zanzibar Island, just outside the party beaches at Kendwa. With a number of backpacker and mass-market hotels nearby, Kilindi is by far the most luxurious property in the area.

Sand River Maasai Mara

Sand River Maasai Mara is a stunning property situated on the banks of Sand River in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. There are a total of 16 sumptuous 1920s-style tents spread over two sites.

AfroChic

This is a boutique hotel situated on the north side of Diani Beach, a fabulous location for watersports as well as a brilliant base for exploring the region! AfroChic won a Travellers’ Choice award from TripAdvisor this year (2016).
