How much is a safari to Tanzania?

The question everyone wants to know!

This is a question we get asked on a regular basis. Because a safari is dependent on so many factors (time of year, destination, camp, size of your party etc.), there is, annoyingly, no set price of a safari. Basic tented camps will start from around USD $400 per person per night. These tented camps will more often than not have running water, ensuite bathrooms, flushing toilets and comfortable beds and furniture so by no means are they ‘basic’.

If you are looking for something more luxurious, with amenities such as swimming pools, free standing bathtubs, private verandas, private plunge pools and stunning interior designs, then of course, the price goes up quite rapidly – expect to pay around the $700-$1,000 per person per night mark for these types of properties.

Although it may sound expensive initially, the good thing about the price of a safari is that everything is included. With a night’s stay at a safari camp, you get all meals and drinks (some camps exclude drinks), the safari activities on a shared basis (usually one in the morning and one in the afternoon), the park and concession fees and the airstrip transfers. The only things that are always excluded is personal gratuities and tipping. This means that you will not have to spend much money when it comes to your trip.

We are a specialist tour operator so we can tailor-make your safari based on how long you would like to go for and what you would like to spend. Obviously budgets need to be realistic, but a good way to start would be to let us know a rough budget for your trip at the beginning, and from there, we can look at suitable options for accommodation and destinations. We always strive to put together your perfect trip.
