What are Budget Safari Tours & Packages? by

Our aim at African Budget Safaris is to bring you the best value for money safaris and tours available on the African continent, without compromising on quality.

Always cheap, never nasty

Our packages may be cheap, but they certainly won't feel that way. Our long, ever-growing list of five star TripAdvisor reviews stands as testimony to this.

Choosing your safari travel style

We have categorised each Safari trip into one of the following 4 categories: Camping, Lodge, Exclusive and Forty Plus Safaris. Regardless of your requirements we will have the perfect African Safari for you.

Budget Camping Safaris

On a Budget Camping Safari you can expect to spend your nights in two man dome tents that are spacious and well ventilated, ensuring maximum comfort.

Camping Safaris generally require an active participation element from you. This can be from putting up your own tent, to helping with meal preparation on a roster basis.

Camping Safaris are ideal for those clients wishing to play an active role in the running of their Safari adventure. It is however important to note that your level of participation is generally restricted to the campsite area.

Budget Lodge Safaris

Our Lodge Safaris are generally conducted in accommodation facilities that are in the 2 to 3 Star bracket. The accommodation comes in the form of dorm, single, double/twin and occasionally triple accommodated rooms.

We make use of a variety of accommodation facilities from Hotels, Guesthouses, Cabins and Backpackers on these tours.

Exclusive Small Group Camping

Our Exclusive Small Group Camping Safaris are chosen because they fulfill certain criteria that make them stand above the rest. The Exclusive Budget Safari generally entails travelling in a small group which ensures more one-on-one interaction with the Tour Guide.

Exclusive Budget Safaris require minimal to no participation from the traveller.

This type of Safari generally includes a larger portion of activities in the tour price; the vehicles used are on the whole smaller four wheel drives.

Private Camping

Exclusive Small Group Camping Safaris often make use of camping sites that are not open to the public, ensuring privacy. It is often the case that your nights' accommodation for the duration of your African Safari will consist of a combination of lodge and camping to give you a nice mix of sleeping under the stars and the home comforts of a lodge stay.

Forty Plus Safaris

Forty Plus Safaris are safari packages that are specifically designed for a slightly more mature traveller.

These tours are put together for clients over the age of 40, with the intention of creating a more refined group of fellow travellers more likely to have shared interests.

The trips are generally more comfortable in terms of the accommodation used, the vehicle choice and the distances travelled between tour destinations. 

Curated Selection of Travel Packages

We carefully screen each and every one of our packages, making 100% sure that the trip delivers more than it promises.

We love our jobs, because at the end of the day, our goal is a simple one: for you as the traveller to have an awesome experience in Africa, at a price that won't break the bank.
