The cost of safari

The cost of booking a safari tour tend to appear high but I would like to share with you why for any serious safari tour operator the cost has to be high

Operates only for 8 months in a year
Customers are all aware that for a perfect safari the best time to book is during the sunny season. In Kenya the rainy season is between April and June making the safari bookings drop by 80% but generally all staffs still have to be paid.

Vehicle Service and Maintenance
To maintain the high standard of service and comfort of the Customers Safari vehicles have to constantly be checked and repaired because most of the safaris are in roads which are in bad condition. The Vehicles are locally customized for Safari and take maximum 7 for better personal experience.

Park Fees
To enable our Government to take care of the parks and pay game wardens the park fees charged is slightly high. It is very justified considering that the parks are mostly hundred kilometers squared and have to be guarded. The park fees equally help in the rescue of wild animals when needs arises.

To run the safari camps and Lodges at the parks cost more than running a beach hotel. The accommodations have to pay a monthly fee to be allowed to put up a camp or lodge in the park. Being located in the park some have to operate on 24hrs generator and food has to be flown in or driven in on daily basis to enable our customers enjoy fresh meals. Some accommodations have to pump in a lot of water to fill the waterhole frequented by the wild animals. check the accomodations we offer

Game Drives
Driving around the park trying to spot the animals equally raises the cost of your safari. To maximize your experience our drivers are not restricted on fuel consumption.
