The cost of African safari

Contact a Specialist

There is no set price for a safari, as your choices can have a big effect on the overall cost. One night on safari can range anywhere from $500 - $2,000 per person , excluding travel costs. Our travel experts will always work to your individual budget to ensure you get the best experience for your money.

Generally, the most expensive safari destination is Botswana, with an average high season, luxury safari here costing $1,500+ per person, per night. South Africa would typically be the most accessible, with a luxury safari during low season costing an average of $600 per person, per night.

The following can affect the cost of your safari;

  • The time of year or 'season' you choose to go
  • Where you choose to go
  • The occasion you are travelling for. We can offer you special rates when travelling for occasions like honeymoons, milestone birthdays or anniversaries.

Whatever budget you have in mind for your safari, we always recommend getting in touch with our travel experts. They will provide you with a range of safari options that fit your budget ( possibly with some special Mahlatini extras).
