How much does a safari cost?

The price of a safari depends on a variety of factors, including: group size, season, level of accommodation, and number of days.

As all of our trips include everything on the ground—from airport pick-up to drop-off—the fact is that once you pay for your trip you don’t even need to bring any currency with you, if you so choose (except for the $50-$100 Tanzanian visa fee, payable on arrival at the airport).

The list of what we provide includes, but is not limited to:

  • Airport transfers
  • Three meals per full-day
  • Lodging (four and five star)
  • Park Fees
  • Transportation
  • Guide fees
  • Taxes
  • Gratuity for all guides and lodging staff

Not included:

  • non-ground costs (airfare)
  • alcohol

So, how much should you expect to pay?

For basic planning purposes, expect to spend about USD$500 per person, per day.

Please note that this number can be higher (if you choose add-ons, elect to stay at luxury properties, book last-minute, etc.), or lower (larger group size, booking during off-season [mid-March-May and November-mid-December], etc.).

Please note: we are not the cheapest option with which to do a safari trip in Tanzania. We recognize that for many guests this is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, and because of that we strive to make everything perfect. We pay competitive wages to the best-trained, most-experienced guides; travel in the most comfortable retrofitted Toyota Land Cruisers; and stay at the nicest properties in the country so that your time with us in Tanzania is unforgettable. There are cheaper prices out there, but be aware that there will be trade-offs — even if they aren’t readily visible at first.
