BEST MONTHS FOR STUDENT VACATIONS IN AFRICA

YOU ASKED

What is the best time for students vacations to Africa? We are hoping to use the minimum budget possible which months have the best vacation prices.


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

When school plan students vacations to Africa the main consideration is that the vacation does not interfere with the academic (classroom) program of the students. Since it is not all students in a class or a particular year who can pay for the African trip, the school must do a balancing act to see that the students who travel to Africa do not miss out on important school work.

With above most students vacations to Africa take place designated school holidays. The summer period, Xmass, New Year and Easter holidays have high prices for students vacations. May and November are low season months in most African countries and taking the vacation on these months can be a significantly lower price than the high season months.

Other factors that determine the price of students vacations to Africa are: number of students in the group, hotels and safari camps used, national parks visited, length of the tour.
