Why Tanzania Safari is too expensive?
Tanzania is chosen as the world’s best safari country, but it is also an expensive country. Unfortunately we cannot change that. What we can do is give you a breakdown of the costs of a safari, so you get a better understanding.
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.
