How much does Tanzania Safari cost?

Planning for a Safari to Tanzania, the world's best Safari destination can be a very overwhelming thing if you do not have the actual cost of your trip. Oreteti Safari your best travel experience is here to help you get a clear picture of what it is the cost of a safari here in Tanzania.

Tanzania is home to Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater, and this fact alone makes a solid case for declaring it's best safari country. Tanzania is chosen as the world's best safari country, but it is also an expensive country as many say it, in fact, it is not that much expensive, because what you expect to see really is beyond the value you are paying for.

The fact is clear that there is much more than just Serengeti and Ngorongoro. Tanzania is a blessed country with a lot of national parks and is a very unique destination for tourists as is blessed with all the world has to offer, not only national parks but also has the most exotic beaches plus the world's free-standing mountains.

When you are in Tanzania you have a chance to visit Serengeti national park, Ngorongoro crater, Tarangire national park, Lake Manyara national park, Arusha national park, Ruaha national park, Udzungwa game reserve, Burigi national park and many other national parks and game reserves. For a classic and world-class animal viewing point, Tanzania is the climax of a safari.

Tanzania is also well known for the wild beast migration and in order to see the incredible spectacle of the great migration, you need to visit during the Dry season (June to October). Wildlife watching across the country is also at a premium at this time. That said, the northern-circuit parks still have productive game drives in the Wet season (November to May). And January and February is the time when wildebeest calving in the Serengeti attracts lots of predators.

With only a minimum of $350 per day to $2,700 which is from a budget safari to a luxury safari. The mentioned price covers everything from accommodations to entrances plus transport. The mentioned price above covers transport, camping or basic accommodation, most meals and activities. You also can choose to spend more, of course, spend a lot more on your dream African safari experience with luxury Tanzania Safaris costing about $1,500 per day or more. Luckily with Oreteti Safari, there is a Tanzania safari package to suit every budget, from $350 to $2,100 per person per day for budget-friendly safaris, through to expensive top-end safaris where the sky is the limit.

Below is a cost split of what exactly a client is paying for, with our years of experience in the field of Travel and Tourism this is where the cost is derived from.

  • Rent of safari vehicle & private guide
  • Entrance fees for the national parks
  • Accommodation & Meals

The first two factors are fixed prices unless you choose to share the safari vehicle with your friends who are much advised for you to save some money, you can convince your friends to join you in a safari and come up as a group and not as a solo traveller. The entrance fees for the national parks are expensive, if you intend to use a private car and this varies from one park to another,  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. On the other hand, you can possibly save money on accommodation, depending on the level of luxury/exclusiveness you choose.

What are the factors that determine safari cost?

  1. Duration (Length of Stay)
  2. Accommodation type (budget, mid-range, or luxury)
  3. Number of travellers
  4. Transfers and extra cars
  5. National park you visit
  6. Season of the year
