Our 2024 Top Eco Lodges in Africa (Totally Eco-Friendly)
Our Best Eco Lodges in Africa. Get in touch with one of our Africa Safari Experts to help tailor-make your stay at the best eco-friendly lodges in Africa – Ready to Start Planning Your Safari With a Purpose?
Going on safari is, in our opinion, the most efficient and direct method to have a beneficial impact on wildlife conservation and community development. You can directly fund conservation and provide communities (like the Maasai and Samburu) with a real incentive to preserve East Africa‘s stunning flora and fauna by paying conservation fees, a tariff built into the price of your safari that is collected by our partners and given to indigenous landowners.

Additionally, planning your safari at the best eco-friendly lodges and camps in Africa helps local residents find work. The severe effects of COVID-19 on tourism and the nearby villages who depend on it financially are, thankfully, just temporary.
More than ever, ecotourism in East Africa will be essential to the revival of safari travel. Additionally, a sustainable safari gives you the chance to volunteer. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite eco-friendly lodges in Africa if you’re thinking about going on a safari with a cause.
Top Eco-Lodges in Tanzania
Singita Sasakwa Lodge
The Serengeti-Mara ecosystem includes the Singita Grumeti Reserve, which is next to the Serengeti National Park. The reserve was established by the Tanzanian government in 1994 to safeguard the route of the annual Wildebeest Migration. The Grumeti Fund, a non-profit organization that runs important initiatives for community and wildlife development, was given the authority to manage the reserve beginning in 2002.
Chem Chem Lodge
Between Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Parks, in a private concession, is the opulent and secluded Chem Chem Lodge. The proprietors not only oversee and run Chem Chem to guarantee that visitors receive individualized service, but they also share a profound love and respect for Tanzania’s precious nature.
In close proximity to Zanzibar’s southwestern shore is Pemba Island, where this rustic resort is situated. One of Tanzania’s top coastal eco-lodges, Fundu Lagoon boasts a stunning private beach and is only reachable by boat. Fundu Lagoon was built in the late 1990s with the intention of leaving as little of an environmental footprint as possible and using only local materials and craftspeople.
Since then, this eco-lodge in Tanzania has been at the forefront of creating an ecotourism model that is sustainable and works closely with local communities to support Pemba Island’s environmental management and conservation initiatives.
