Find accommodation which fits your Budget
There’s a reasonably wide range of the types of safari accommodations available. But, it’s up to you to decide which one matches your tastes and budget. Price is definitely going to be a factor influencing the decision you make, so it’s important for you to decide how you want to spread your safari budget. If you’re planning to stay in one place for a while, splurging on a world-class safari lodge doesn’t sound bad. However, it might not be worth the cash for a super luxurious accommodation if you’re only staying for a short time.
Many budget travelers get very disappointed when they realize how expensive a safari can be, however, there are also economic camps which offer the best rates for this particular category of wanderlust travelers like Enchoro Wildlifes Camp in Masai Mara. The fundamental point of a safari, after all, is to experience the incredible wildlife Africa has to offer, and everything else is just icing on the cake. Conversely, finding an African safari on a budget will mean being flexible a little bit. Most mid-range camps are very satisfactory as they provide value for the money spent by offering great amenities and entertainment.
Given that accommodation is such a large portion of the overall safari cost, opting for a budget type of accommodation can help to reduce safari costs dramatically. Most National parks in Africa have one or more campsites and are well set up with on-site bathrooms and outdoor dining areas, giving you an authentic experience.
While not for everyone, group safaris are a great option for keeping accommodation and transport costs down. They also provide an opportunity to interact with other travel enthusiasts.
