tips on how to save money on African Safari Travel

Everyone is looking to save money and find the best travel deals when booking their African Safari vacation! We have some great guidelines for you to follow that will certainly help you find the best value for money while planning your travels.
1. Get in touch with one of our online travel consultants, as we are locally based and know all the last special offers and discounts available to travelers.

2. Our travel consultants are well travelled in all the areas we have to offer so let them know exactly the type of safari vacation you are looking for and they will advise on their own personal experience.

3. Spend more time in fewer places, if time permits rather split your time between 2 or 3 destinations than try and fit in too many different areas into your itinerary as the flights between destinations do add up to be a large portion of your safari's total cost.

4. Try to be as flexible as possible with your travel dates as the airlines often have discounted fares at certain times of the month or season.

5. Ask about your stay/ pay specials and get a free night on us. Most of the hotels and safari lodges we represent offer a free night when spending a certain number of days with them.

6. Also ask about your combo specials that we have available at certain times of the year. eg. If you spend 3 nights on safari you can get a few nights free at a hotel.

7. It is worth contacting the airlines directly to use your frequent flyer miles for your international flight tickets as they are long haul flights these tickets do contribute to a large portion of your total safari cost.

8. If you planning a honeymoon ask about all the extra specials available to honeymooners as most of the safari lodges and hotels do enjoy spoiling honeymooners so they will certainly go out of their way to make your honeymoon extra romantic at no extra charge.

9. Travel out of season if possible as everything is always discounted in the low season period so you definitely get the best value for money.

10. Follow us on social media and keep up to date with our latest special offers and low season rates.
