Saving on a safari
Budget safaris bridge the balance between being outdoors in the realm of wild animals and travelling safely without cutting corners. One of the best options is an Africa overland tour; you’ll see plenty of the continent but costs are kept down as, where possible, they’ll use one overland vehicle for both transport and game drives. These overland trucks are really tall and have massive windows so everyone gets enough space to stretch out with plenty of room to see.
Budget safaris can also incorporate camping which, again, will save you money whilst placing you under a blanket of stars with just the sounds of the crackling camp fire and nocturnal calls from the bush offering evening entertainment that’s about as authentic a safari experience as you could ever imagine. So if you’re longing to travel overland from Cape Town to Victoria Falls, see huge elephant herds loitering in Kruger National Park or meet the Maasai after crossing the Great Rift Valley, then here’s where your budget safari adventure begins to quicken its pace and move in for the kill.
