Our budget African safaris are booked and operated through us, Africa Expedition Support only. Therefore no agents fees, no commissions, no unnecessary costs that at the end of the day you pay for in your trip price – we have wiped these off the equation! Saving you money!
By using an overland safari truck with up to 22 seats we can reduce the cost per person to the absolute minimum.
As we don’t know what your preferences are, all activities are optional and you pay direct to the local operator as you go. This saves you money as again there are no unnecessary bank charges, transfer fees, exchange rate loses, credit card charges (unless you use your credit card) as you are paying directly to the operator.
Besides we don’t know whether you prefer being scared to death by a lion in the Masai Mara Game Reserve or throwing yourself off a bungee tower over the Nile River!
