Accommodation in South Africa
South Africa has a variety of accommodation on offer and Tailor Made Safaris has carefully selected the establishments used throughout your trip. Our main criteria are that the accommodation is clean and comfortable. Depending on your needs and budget, we use 3 to 5 star accommodations or a combination thereof. Please remember, however, that the standards may differ from what you are accustomed to in Europe. It is safe to say that all 5 star accommodations are of an exceptional standard, but for this you pay. Three and 4 star establishments usually score highly on certain aspects but lower on other aspects and are so awarded their star rating on the average score between those strong and less strong points. As I said, we carefully select our destinations and accommodation and these establishments are always good, in our opinion. An establishment may be clean and comfortable but its beautiful location may earn more points than its interior. Another establishment may have excellent customer service but its restaurant needs improvement. These are some factors affecting the star rating of accommodation establishments. Bear in mind that, when staying in 3 and 4 star accommodation, a score of 10/10 is not realistic and if 'tip top' accommodation is what you're after, the much more expensive 5 star establishments are what you need.
