The Adventure Camps are a budget option with guests bringing their own sleeping bags and towels and accommodation is in dome tents with a mattress on the floor. Each camp site has its own ablution block with a toilet, safari shower and wash basin. The Adventure Camps are suitable for those who don't mind "real camping" and can put up with some degree of "roughing it". Apart from the accommodation in simple dome tents, the meals and the guiding are at the same standard as the luxury tented camps and game drives are in 4x4 safari vehicles.
Eco-camps and smaller tented camps have large insect-proof tents some with en suite facilities including safari shower and flush toilets. They give a more authentic safari experience but the tents are comfortably furnished with proper beds and you don't need to bring your own sleeping bag!
Safari lodges have guest rooms similar to a hotel with en suite bathrooms. The safari lodges and bigger tented lodges can be more "touristy" and being larger establishments they can be a bit impersonal. They suit those who prefer to have the infrastructure and facilities of a hotel and most have swimming pools and extensive grounds and gardens.
The boutique lodges and camps can be very stylish and smart in terms of design and decor, often with very spacious rooms and even going so far in some cases as having plunge pools for each room.
