CAN WE BOOK A WALKING SAFARI WITHOUT ACCOMMODATION?

YOU ASKED

I want to cut down the costs of a 8 days walking safari in Kenya. Can I book the walking safari itinerary but not the tented camps that the walking safari operator is proposing, as it is out of my safari budget?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

Many operators sell walking safaris as package consist of hotels/tented camps, meals, transport, guiding, park fees and other logistical factors that make walking tours successful. The danger of breaking down the package for the clients to out-source on by-need basis, is that for the safari operator he can't control the standard that he wants to maintain (or create) in his walking safaris.

The options you have is: let your walking safari operator know that you are uncomfortable with the price of the tented camp that he has proposed and chances tare that he will offer an alternative safari camps that will keep the walking safari itinerary.
