Every major center, and many smaller centers, as well as all the principal tourist destinations offer at least one major hotel, usually many more than that, and many mid-range to budget options too.
Added to this there is a very wide network of wilderness and wildlife lodge options that are usually associated in some way with one of the main national parks or geographic features. Added to this there are quite a number of private game farms and conservancies that offer tented camp or lodge accommodation of a very high standard. Most of these quote an all inclusive price for accommodation and field excursions
