Accommodation in Southern Africa encompasses a wide variety of definitions from a patch of turf at a basic campground to opulent lodges that defy any star rating. Although prices vary immensely from country to country, budget travellers can generally get a night’s sleep for under US$50. Midrange options cost from US$50 to US$100 (although this can be up to US$150 in parts of the region, such as Mozambique). Top-end options charge upwards of US$100. For a more accurate indication of price ranges check individual country Directories for the relevant budget breakdown.
