Pricing Guidelines

The cost of a safari can vary anywhere from approximately $3,500 per person (including international airfare) to $10,000 or more. The costs will vary depending upon your length of stay, the season, the style of accommodation, the destination, and how much you want to experience.

You need to be careful about advertised safari specials. They will apply at certain times of the year and although attractively priced they typically do not include international airfare as well as many of the "incidental' costs associated with any safari. These costs can really add up quickly. They are:

  • Visas
  • Insurance
  • Airline Fuel Surcharges
  • Airport taxes
  • Single supplement for a solo traveler
  • Surcharges on the use of credit cards imposed by foreign banks
  • Anti-malaria medication
  • Tipping
  • Souvenirs

At Safaris Made Simple we will provide you with honest quotes and an itemization of all these 'incidental' costs.

There are several types of accommodations available on safari. We suggest considering ‘mixing and matching them’ for the complete safari experience.
