Budget Safaris offer every type of Safari in Tanzania; from large game viewing, short sightseeing tours, to beach holidays & mountain climbing. Budget Safaris take care of everything.
All Tanzania safaris can be customized to suit travellers on a budget or travellers looking for something a bit more luxurious. Numerous accommodation options are provided throughout our safaris, ranging from Budget, Moderate to high end luxurious lodges
For most people the terms backpacking and budget go hand-in-hand but this doesn’t have to be the case. However short or long the duration of your holiday, whatever the style of your trip and wherever your choice of destination takes you, your holiday can benefit from a little bit of clever money management.
Low Season Rates
During the low season in Tanzania, you can find excellent rates for the private lodges that stay open during the rains. This gives you to the chance get a top notch safari at a fraction of the high season cost. If wildlife is your priority and your budget sits toward the modest end of the scale. In Tanzania, the rain falls between April and May.
Budget Safari Lodges
Tanzania have accommodation ranging from larger safari hotels or resorts to smaller, more exclusive lodges. The larger ones are less expensive in general, but they don’t quite provide that ‘hidden in the bush’ feeling of the more intimate lodges. Of course, the wildlife is there no matter where you stay, so you’ll still get the safari experience of a lifetime, wherever you opt to stay.
Travel By Road Rather Than By Flying
Using a driver-guide instead of flying into your chosen safari lodge is now a popular safari option in Tanzania. It’s easy to see why because it’s a great way to keep costs down.
With a private driver-guide, you literally ‘hire’ the services of a professional guide for the duration of your safari, together with the exclusive use of a 4x4 or safari minivan vehicle. Your guide will be your personal safari chauffeur, and all your game drives (and any travelling in between) will be taken with him rather than with the lodge’s own guides. He’s likely to be your new best friend at the end of your safari holiday!
At first glance, this kind of personal attention probably makes it sound like the more expensive option. And that’s the brilliant thing. Travelling with a private driver-guide actually has some real cost advantages. Firstly, you’ll avoid paying for return flights per person to your lodge, which can be a sizeable expense. Secondly, you can book the less expensive full board rate offered by most safari lodges and camps, which only includes your meals and accommodation. You won’t need game drives to be included, as your driver guide will lead these personally.
