Gone are the days when African safaris were ultra-luxury experiences reserved for the rich and famous. Today there are lots of excellent value-for-money safaris out there for all kinds of travellers. A once-in-a-lifetime safari in Tanzania can now be wonderfully affordable.

Among the major factors that determine the price of Tanzania safaris are the type of safari you choose and the duration. Then there are lots of other travel costs such as seasonality, safari circuit in Tanzania (the northern circuit is very popular), your flights and visa, safari activities, safari vehicle, and a few often-forgotten extra costs.

Mucho Tours & Safaris offers mainly Private Safaris tailor-made for you. These are fully customized safaris to include the standard of accommodation and activities that you prefer which gives you more choice and the ideal Africa safari of your dream. A mid-range budget lodge safari in Tanzania costs from about $350 per person per day and a tailor-made private safari with lodge style accommodation costs about $300 to $550 per person per day, making it a surprisingly affordable option.

When thinking of  Tanzania safari, timing is everything. To have the best safari experience will depend entirely on naturally occurring factors, like seasonal rainfall. This means that having preferred travel dates will make a big difference to your itinerary – you don’t want to be in the Serengeti when the millions of wildebeest are already mowing down fresh grass in the Masai Mara!

Knowing how many days you want to spend in Tanzania and at what time of year is very important information to have when you start planning your itinerary. Not only will this influence what you’ll see and experience, it also has a big impact on your budget. If your safari goal is a seasonal event, it is likely that the best places to experience it will be booked up well in advance, which means you want to know the ideal travel dates as soon as you start planning.

If you wait until you are there, you will be spending your time going from office to office followed by flycatchers trying to persuade you to use their company. They will in fact be camped out in front of your hotel waiting for you. Instead, enjoy your free time looking around the town in peace. The more you wander from company to company, the more likely you will feel confused by the options and prices. We highly recommend you book your safari at least one month before arrival.

A deposit payment of 30% of the total invoice amount has to be paid within 14 days after the invoice date. The remaining amount is due eight weeks (56 days) before arrival. For bookings within the period of 56 days prior to departure the full amount of the invoice has to be paid instantly. Once we have received the amount in our bank account, we will send you a confirmation email. Please note that bank transfer costs should be covered by the sender.

In case the date of payment is exceeded, you will receive a friendly reminder. If we do not receive your payment subsequently, we have the right to cancel your trip and we will charge you cancellation fees of 30% of the total amount.

In case you may need to cancel your trip, please notify us by email at your earliest convenience. Any cancellations shall be effective on the date that we received your cancellation request. The following cancellation fees apply:

  1. Cancellation up to 56 days before the day of arrival: 30% of the total amount;
  2. Cancellation from 56 days to 42 days before the day of arrival: 75% of the total amount;
  3. Cancellation from 42 days to the day of arrival: 100% of the total amount.

No refunds will be given for any unused services, late arrivals or no-shows.

All suggested safari itineraries are subject to availability and not guaranteed until confirmed. Should wish to make any amendment after confirmation, we will advise you the available possibilities.
