LOW COST KENYA TRAVEL FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

YOU ASKED

How can a high school student travel on a Kenyan safari on a tight budget?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

A high school student who wants to travel to Kenya on a low cost can do so if they commit themselves to shop for deals and saving tips which are now easily available from the internet.

Start with the airfare. Armed with your student card you can get cheap or discounted airfares to Kenya, although they may come with terms and conditions which may not suit your travel scheme, especially if you align it with your academic calender.

Staying in youth hostels during your travelers to Kenya and self-catering cottages can also keep you within your budget.

When visiting national parks consider camping safaris in public campsites where you share facilities with other campers. Camping trips in which you help in tour-related chores are often much cheaper than where there is extra staff for cooking, setting up safari tents etc.

To wrap up: if you have flexible time, note that you get low cost safaris during the off-season which you will not in the summer peak and xmass through new year holidays.
