Safari holidays ‘do not have to cost a fortune’

People do not need to break the bank to be able to afford a safari, one writer has pointed out.

Michelle Li, writing for Seek4Media, stated it is possible to get a good deal on such a wildlife excursion, but people should not go too far towards the other end of the price scale either.

She said the cost varies depending on the reserve, park or conservancy chosen, adding that Kenya, South Africa and Namibia are among the cheaper places to visit for Safari holidays.

What's more, Ms Li said people could go off-peak if they are looking to save some pennies.

Kenya's high season is between August and September so a trip there around now or shortly after could be more worthwhile financially.

This comes after John and Sandra Nolan, writing for the Calgary Herald, observed an array of animals in the Tsavo Game Reserve in Kenya, from elephants and baboons to warthogs.
