How to lower your safari cost

As a safari company, we desire to make your dream of a tour to Africa come true. However, the safari cost (financial costs) hinders most people who desire to check this off their bucket list. Below we have some suggestions on how to lower their safari cost and have a memorable experience in the wild in Africa.

  • Consider the group joining safari. These are tours arranged where you share the Land Cruiser or Safari van with other travelers pooled together by the safari operator. We have several group joining safaris for you to choose from.
  • Consider traveling during the low season. The low season for safaris in Kenya is from January to June. During this time, you can often find great deals on safari packages during the low season. The peak season for safaris in Kenya is from July to September. During this time, the weather is dry and sunny, and the animals are easier to spot. However, this is also the most popular time to visit Kenya, so prices are higher and crowds are larger. This can lower your safari cost by 20% or more.
  • Stay in budget accommodations. There are a number of budget-friendly accommodations available in Kenya. These accommodations may not be as luxurious as some of the more expensive options, but they offer great value for your money.
  • Pack light. The less luggage you have, the less you will have to pay for baggage fees.
  • Be flexible with your itinerary. If you’re willing to be flexible with your itinerary, you may be able to save money by changing your plans at the last minute. This is especially true if there is a sudden change in the weather or if there is a problem with your transportation.
  • Manage the cost of your flight. The airfare accounts for 30% – 50% of the entire safari cost. Here are some ways to lower the cost of flights from Europe, Asia, or America to Nairobi:
      1. Book your flights in advance. The earlier you book your flights, the more likely you are to get a good deal.
      2. Be flexible with your travel dates. If you can, try to travel during the off-season or weekdays when flights are typically cheaper.
      3. Consider flying into a different airport. If you’re willing to travel a little further, you may be able to find cheaper flights to a smaller airport, such as Mombasa or Kilimanjaro.
      4. Compare prices from different airlines. There are a number of websites that allow you to compare prices from different airlines, such as Kayak or Skyscanner.
      5. Look for deals and discounts. Many airlines offer discounts for students and members of the military. You can also find deals and discounts on websites like Groupon or LivingSocial.
      6. Consider flying with a budget airline. Budget airlines typically offer lower fares but may have stricter baggage restrictions and fewer amenities.
