What to Budget for a safari in Africa?
Affordability is in the mind of the beholder and the value of desired experiences is a personal matter.
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 then transport logistics costs come into play. If you are pressed for time, and wish to cover just the highlights, a light air charter is the answer. A bit pricey perhaps, but then you are getting what you want.
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.
