Electricity is provided by generator and there are lights and sockets (3 pin square 220 V) in each tent. The generator will run from 10am to 2pm and again from 6.30pm to 11pm. All water is solar heated.

Any special dietary requirements should be made known at the time of booking. Activities include game drives in Mikumi National Park, while day excursions to Udzungwa Mountains National Park, just an hour’s drive away, can be organised from here for trekking and forest walks.
Best Safari tours from Morogoro
Often overlooked by many safari operators in favour of the northern parks, the southern parks of Nyerere National Park (formerly the Selous Game Reserve) and Ruaha National Park are worth serious consideration and are the preferred destination for most who are really keen on their safari.
The benefits of heading to the south is that, where the very north of the Serengeti gives the numbers of game, along with some seclusion, the southern parks are still very much “frontier” parks and so are noticeably less busy (they also feature the same spread of species as the north, but more like a thousand, rather than 2 million).
The second important point is that, where the average lodge cost in the north is around $700 per person per night, the lodges in the south, where they offer a similar experience, are around $2-300 less.
The south and west of Tanzania are often overshadowed by the more famous and iconic Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater in the north. Some agents feel that the south and west are better suited to the seasoned safari-goer and don’t recommend them for a first timer – however we would disagree! We have sent thousands of first timers to southern Tanzania where they have had an excellent safari experience.
