PRICES OF WALKING SAFARIS DURING XMASS AND NEW YEAR

YOU ASKED

Why is there such a big difference in African walking safari prices during xmass and new year holidays with the rest of the year? I can only take my vacation in the holiday season and I notice prices are 50% more than for walking safaris in the rest of the year.


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

Africa walking safaris that take place in the xmass and new year period attract what is known as holiday supplements which are levied by hotels and safari camps because they give extra services, especially on food during the holiday season. Other than this note that Africa safaris also operate on the rule of demand and the supply setting the walking safaris price.

As more people want to travel to Africa during the xmass and new year season, naturally the prices go up unlike in the low season when you have fewer people being in a position to take their holidays.

The way round high prices for walking safaris is join a scheduled group or discuss with your walking safari operator about alternative safari camps to suit your budget.
