Going on an African safari can be an expensive affair. For travelers arriving from Europe or North America, airfare to Africa can be quite pricy. Add the fact that staying in popular parks is not very cheap either and youíve got a bit of a problem when you want to look for affordable African safaris .
Still, there are ways to plan a dream vacation in Africa. First of all, choose a less popular wild life park. Masai Mara Game Reserve (Kenya) , Selous Game Reserve (Tanzania), Okavango Delta (Botswana), Okonjima Main Camp (Namibia), Hlane Royal National Park (Swaziland), South Luangwa National Park (Zambia) or Sabi Sand Game Reserve (South Africa) are good choices, each offering unique opportunities to see wildlife. Also, try to plan the vacation during the off-season. And although itís surely worth it to spend several week on a safari, staying for several days will allow you to combine more African experiences.
You can plan a day tour to see the wild dogs in Botswana and then go on a three-days tour of South Luangwa National Park. Because of its remote location, fewer tourists come there. The good part is that the park retains its original, unspoiled landscape.
And if you can get a chance to visit South Africa, make sure to go on a safari tour in Kruger National Park. Yes, itís expensive but planning to go during the low-season can save a lot of money. Also, if you choose to stay in a tent or hut wonít feel like you burn holes in your pockets.
Going on an African safari is something any traveler should do at least one in their lifetime. So, why not book a flight to Africa for your next vacation?
