WOMEN-ONLY OVERSEAS ADVENTURES IN AFRICA

YOU ASKED

Why are women-only overseas adventures to Africa more expensive than mixed group adventure tours?


ANNE HUYSMAN REPLIES

The cost of women adventure tours to Africa and other overseas destination varies from one operator to the other. While indeed there is a noticeable difference in tour prices of women only travel groups and co-ed tours, you should focus on what value-adding "extras" that your women adventure outfitter is putting into the tour.

For example on women tours in Africa, besides the standard safaris visits to popular game parks, operators include visits with local women groups, schools or other social events that give direct interaction with rural communities. All these end up putting a mark up on the price of the women-only tours.

Also the fact that women-only tours lock out the men, there is usually a price for this as the operators are drawing from only one gender in the travel demographics.

To wrap up - a way around the price of women-only adventures tours in Africa is to book your tour direct with the local tour operator. Click here to learn how to vet local safari operators.
