Budget African Safaris

Budget safaris are mostly sharing tours which include pitching your own tent, helping to cook and traveling across Africa by road. As the economy continues to recover, traveling on a budget is an affordable way to quench your thirst for adventure. You can opt for small group tours of up to ten people only. Standard park lodges, tented camps, and chalets are the usual accommodations. You can upgrade your camping trips, which combine camping and lodge accommodations. Tailor-made guided groups are best for large groups (8-10) and offer flexibility in terms of schedule and budget. Transportation is by road, usually with an experienced guide who also serves as guide and cook.
