African Budget Safaris is an experienced team of African travel fanatics based in Cape Town, South Africa. Through years of bundu bashing up and down the African continent, we've tried every tour and safari package under the sun to sort the diamonds from the rough.
With all this African travel experience under our belts we can guarantee that all of the adventure travel tours, budget safaris, camping safaris, overland packages, city & short stay packages and self drive trips we carry are the best African budget travel packages available.
From our base in Cape Town's ‘Republic of Hout Bay’ we dedicate ourselves to bringing you the best value tours and safaris available on the African continent. Being close to the African destinations our tours visit means we have an intimate understanding of budget travel in Africa. If it’s hiking up the mighty Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, visiting the “Smoke that Thunders” in Victoria Falls, or diving with the Great White Sharks off the South African coastline - we have your African bases covered!
Our safari travel buying power means our tour prices are virtually unbeatable in the marketplace. Where many African travel companies like to splash out on fancy offices to impress clients, we prefer to save on running costs so that we can pass on the savings to our travellers. We're pretty sure nobody comes to Africa to check out our offices, at least we hope so.
We booked a 7 day overlanding trip from Swakopmund to Cape Town. Bronwyn, our travel agent, was very helpful and always replied within a few hours, which made the booking really easy. The trip itself was with ATC Safari. Our crew was amazing. They were really integrated in the group and always made sure that everyone was happy. Definitely recommendable!
