What is a Budget Safari?

A budget safari in Tanzania remains an incredible and authentic experience of obtaining close to the animals in their natural habitat. Don’t let the word “budget” put you off when researching for that excellent trip in Tanzania. Choosing a budget safari doesn’t mean in the least that you just can see less animals, or receive a lower quality service. From my very own experience, our guide went above and beyond to confirm that we saw all the big 5 that we did. As an experienced guide, he selected routes less inhabited, that created our experience additional personal. You’ll be surprised on however crowded Serengeti parkland is, even in low season!
One of the things that defines a budget safari in Tanzania is that you are sharing the car with different travelers. On a luxury safari, you’ll have your own driver and vehicle. Once choosing the budget possibility, you can expect different excited safari goers to attach you. A car has half dozen seats, thus there are quite six people in one car.

When it involves accommodation, on a budget safari you’ll be sleeping in a tent, in a camp. Depending on that company you are travelling with, the camps are often inside or outside the national parks. To be honest, sleeping in a tent within the middle of the grassland is kind of special. Throughout my budget safari in Serengeti national park, we had wild animals visiting the camps nightly. It’s quite special to hear the roaring of the lions thus near to you, to hear the hyenas trying to induce into the bins at night, or nearly feel the breath of the zebras grazing simply outside the tent. You don’t very get that in a luxury resort.

When it involves an itinerary, after you book a budget safari, you have a set itinerary that you just can’t alter. On a luxury safari you can decide where you want to travel and the way long you wish to stay in one place. Also, on a basic safari you’ll lose time on the road, as driving from Arusha or Moshi to Serengeti takes nearly the entire day. On a luxury safari you’ll usually fly directly to Serengeti national park that has an airstrip for small aircraft.

I went on my safari with African Joy Tours and also the vehicle we were in was comfortable and fashionable, with a charger and an electric refrigerator within the back. The roof of the jeep popped up therefore we could see the animals better, and there have been handlebars all-round the roof to carry on to whilst the vehicle was in motion.

How are the Camps on a Budget Safari?

The camp accommodation on a budget safari is kind of comfortable. Different companies have differing types of tents, a number of them even have beds. My tent was quite big, that means that I could stand up inside it. It has windows likewise as a rain cowl that was very helpful in Ngorongoro, where it rained the entire night. The bed was a mattress on the ground that was amazingly quite comfortable. The safari company I went with, Africa Joy Tours, provided us with warm sleeping bags as well, that were a blessing in Ngorongoro, where it was cold.
The camps are quite basic but very clean. The toilets and showers are shared but they are kept clean. Some of the camps even have hot water!

You need to know that electricity is provided through solar panels and might not always work. My strategy was to charge my power bank within the car, during the day, and then use it during the night to charge my phone and my camera. This way I didn’t have to use the electricity in the camp.

You might additionally wander if it’s safe to go to the toilet during the night, when camping. Honestly, i would not recommend it. We had hyenas “laughing” at 2am in the morning simply outside the tent. We were advised that if we do ought to move to the bathroom in the middle of the night, to slightly open the tent and move a flashlight around for a couple of minutes. Animals don’t like powerful light-weight sources. However, my recommendation would be to only not drink an excessive amount of beer for dinner, therefore you ought not to worry about lions chasing you on your way to the toilet.

When you go on a budget safari, you’ll be in the midst of a guide and a cook. While you’re out exploring the national parks, the cook won’t only prepare the food, however he will set up the tents and also the tables.
You would be surprised on how delicious the food is throughout a budget safari. We always had a minimum of four different dishes and dessert for each meal. In the morning, the cook wakes up a minimum of one hour before everyone else and starts preparing breakfast: eggs, pancakes, toast, tea and coffee.
For lunch, depending on how far in the national parks you go, you either have the food packed in a to-go box, or come back to the camp. Our meal boxes were spectacular, with roast chicken, poached eggs, sandwiches, juice boxes and even muffins for dessert. There was always a fruit within the box too. Our second lunch in nature was at the picnic spot from the hippo pool, in Serengeti, our cook created rice and stew which he packed in thermal pots. He packed them in the car in the morning, and they kept hot till lunch time.
