Types of Safari I 2021 Arusha Safari tours
The differences between a budget versus a deluxe safari are the quality and location of accommodations; quality and number of included activities (which are hidden in the final safari cost); size of the safari tour group; and the level of personalized service.
“of camping is the Holiday Inn!” – The novice explorer did not want to pitch a tent and cook food, though there are safaris where an authentic “in the African bush” experience is offered. The novice explorer prefers flushing toilets (no squat holes); hot water showers (versus tepid bucket showers) after a long and dusty game drive; and meals prepared by someone else.
No video games/televisions on safari. Guests have face to face conversations discussing the day’s events and animal observations. Internet access is slow (and expensive) – almost nonexistent out in the bush. Accommodations use generators for a few hours each day to power equipment and provide electricity. The generators are turned off from midnight to dawn to conserve fuel. The safari levels below are arranged as a group safari, as well as a private safari, by a safari tour company: ·
• Budget – least expensive: Participation safari where camping equipment is carried; choice of ‘pitch own tent’ or more basic accommodations. A cook may be hired to prepare meals and clean up. This is a no frills wild game safari. ·
• First Class – moderate expense: more comfortable stays @ rustic hotels/lodges; large safari group tours; restaurants; beds (not sleeping bags); other amenities; additional costs for extra activities,in.e., Masai village visit. ·
• Deluxe – upscale and more expensive; smaller group tours, gourmet dining, game drives at night (additional charge); personalized service, all-inclusive meals and activities, i.e., star gazing, lectures, etc. ·
• Luxury – golf courses, spa treatments, private valets and butlers, wine and liqueur included with meals, free laundry. Less emphasis on observing wildlife, more emphasis on personal pampering.
