Tanzania safari costs
Tanzania is the most visited wildlife safari destination in Africa, On average, a Tanzania safari costs $ 200 USD per person per day.
Factors affecting Tanzania Safari costs
So the follwing are the factors that make up for the total cost of a Tanzanian safari:
- Rent of safari vehicle & private guide
- Entrance fees for the national parks
The first two factors are fixed prices unless you choose to share the safari vehicle with more people. The entrance fees for the national parks are expensive, for example the costs of driving with a safari jeep in the Ngorongoro Crater are $300 per day excl. $78,50 per person. This makes a safari a costly journey. It is possible to save money on accommodation, depending the level of luxury/exclusiveness you choose.
Settling on a budget
The price range for a Tanzania safari is broad and veers from economical to extremely expensive. So, the first thing to do when you start planning your Tanzanian safari costs is decide how much you can or are willing to spend. Natural World Kenya Safaris, an experienced tour operator based in East Africa, can customize the cost of your safari taking into account when you go, the number of people in your party, and your choice of accommodations.
One of the most basic factors to decide upon is whether or not you and your friends and family are willing to share your game drive vehicle (and therefore driver and guide) with other guests. Doing so can seriously lower the cost of your safari in Tanzania and some say it’s one of the best parts of being on safari.
Exploring the African bush
with new friends becomes a bonding experience as you marvel at the wildlife and absorb the sights and sounds of the savannah.
Or, perhaps you favor the intimate and flexible experience of a private safari.
Safari cost per day
The average costs for a safari are roughly starting from $520,- per person per day if you choose the Silver Class Hotels. Even if you go on safari with 4 people, the costs will be around $450 per person per day.
