Safari Pricing Clarification

At East Africa Safari Guides, we strive to make the best possible trip for you, within your limited budget. Herein we explain the main factors that affect the price of your trip. We also describe how pricing on our website works.

We'll work with you to build a journey that makes the most of your time and money. We prefer to include as many of the costs up front so that there are no unpleasant surprises once you're on safari.

There are 4 main reasons that will make a difference to the price of your chosen packages:
  • 1
    Chosen Destinations:

    Each destination you add to your Safari itineraries increases the price of your safari because of the transport involved. However, it is still more cost effective to do one proper safari and see everything, rather than three smaller ones.

    Beach destinations are often less expensive than national parks as there are no entry or park fees involved, and accommodation is also usually more economical. For example, if we were to book you 7 days on safari and 7 days in Zanzibar, it would be less expensive than 14 days on safari.

    Another option would be to include visits to some of the lesser-known parks and reserves, which are more affordable and often just as good. Popular destinations such as the Serengeti and Masai Mara come at a significant premium.

    Your accommodation:

    Accommodation usually makes up the huge chunk of your safari's cost, so where you choose to stay has the biggest impact on your budget. Options range widely, from a few hundred dollars to over $1200 a night per person.

    Our Safari experts knows which lodges and hotels offer the best value for money and these are the ones we'll recommend. Remember to have a look on inclusions and exclusions. A Hotel or Lodge with all-inclusive rates may seem more expensive, but a lower-priced lodge may charge a huge chunk rates for your gin & tonic, laundry, internet or other extras.

    Your Travel Season ( Dates and Time):

    Every destination in Tanzania has a peak season rates, which can be as much as double the low season rates. Sometimes there are also high seasons, priced between the two. If your travel dates are flexible, we can advise you on how to benefit from shoulder and low season rates. It's very important to be aware that the prices shown on our website – are based on low season rates. So if the price you're quoted is higher than the prices you see online, it's because you're probably requesting travel dates that fall outside of the low season.

    Always, the amount of time you spend on safari also has an impact. Minimizing the length of your safari will certainly reduce what it costs!

    Group Size

    Depending on your group size, it can be less expensive to use your own vehicle (with a driver-guide) and drive from/to camp. Your driver, vehicle and fuel costs remain consistent and can be divided by the number of people in your group. This could save you up to $750 per person over a week.
