Your African Safari - Where to go, what to do and what to budget
We represent many safari destinations within Africa, placing emphasis on the safari highlights within these country destinations.
While these are recommended African safari tours there are others available. Please talk to one of our Africa Travel Consultants.
Special Interest Safari activities range from walking safaris and canoe safaris to horse back and elephant back safaris, as well as beach and diving excursions. Photographic expeditions and accompanying vetinary safari operations are even more exclusive. If you are a lover of rail travel, a Luxury Train Safari can be incorporated into your journey as alternative transport from one destination to another.
What to Budget ?
Because Africa is such a diverse and varied destination, there is no easy answer. Camping is cheaper than staying in a luxury safari lodge, except when you are heading into remote areas - and logistics costs come into play.
Certain mobile African safaris operate on a scheduled departure basis at a fixed cost, while fly-in safaris or tailor-made safaris are planned specifically to meet your own personal budget and needs. Affordability is in the mind of the beholder and the value of desired experiences is a personal matter.
