    When you head out on a safari tour the important thing to remember is that the more people that are on your tour with you, then the lower the cost will be. The great thing about booking a group safari tour is that this won’t have an impact on what you can see, in fact, you will actually be able to enjoy all the buzz and excitement that comes from other people. Improving your experience even more.

    Now, we don’t mean actually under the stars, in the open, as this could be dangerous in certain areas. But, sleeping in a tent is great fun. 

    Not only will it help you to save money as this is a more cost-friendly way to book accommodation, but it is also fully immersive too. You will be surrounded by all the sounds of the area and this will help you to have the experience to remember.

    3. Plan your route and time carefully


    If you are trying to keep to a budget whilst on safari, then you are going to want to cram in as much as you can to the time that you have. The more that you need to travel around, then the more it will cost you. 

    , if you can keep things carefully planned out including routes and time-wise, then this is even better for you. Think about how you can cluster experiences together and this will help you to have the best time ever. We can help with this.

    4. Try local food

    5. Think about what is most important for you
