5 Things To Do In Tanzania On A Budget Safari

One thing that people often think about when they are considering a safari holiday is that it is expensive. Of course, seeing these amazing creatures and exploring a fascinating landscape does come at a price, however, that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a trip to Tanzania and not try to keep to a budget.

Many people booking a budget safari are worried that because they don’t have as much to spend out, they are going to miss out on things whilst they are on their holiday. However, this doesn’t have to be the case.

In fact, if you are travelling to Tanzania on a budget safari, there is still plenty that you can see and do. To help to show you more about what we mean, we have put together 5 of the best things that you can do in Tanzania, whilst keeping to a budget. 

Have A Group Tour

When you head out on a safari tour the important thing to remember is that the more people that are on your tour with you, then the lower the cost will be. The great thing about booking a group safari tour is that this won’t have an impact on what you can see, in fact, you will actually be able to enjoy all the buzz and excitement that comes from other people. Improving your experience even more. 

Bed Down Under The Stars

Now, we don’t mean actually under the stars, in the open, as this could be dangerous in certain areas. But, sleeping in a tent is great fun. Not only will it help you to save money as this is a more cost friendly way to book accommodation, but it is also fully immersive too. You will be surrounded by all the sounds of the area and this will help you to have an experience to remember.

Plan Your Route And Time Carefully

If you are trying to keep to a budget whilst on safari, then you are going to want to cram in as much as you can to the time that you have. The more that you need to travel around, then the more it will cost you. So, if you can keep things carefully planned out route and time wise, then this is even better for you. Think about how you can cluster experiences together and this will help you to have the best time ever.

Try Local Food

Eating out can be an expensive part of any break, however, there are plenty of ways that you can keep these costs down. Trying out local food retailers and in particular visiting the markets in Tanzania is a great way to not only keep your spending to a minimum, but also to sample some of the most delicious local foods possible. 

Think About What Is Most Important For You

If you are limited on funds then it is vitally important that you think about what are the most important things for you to see whilst you are in Tanzania and what things you can live without. Having a bucket list can make sure that you plan your time (and not to mention your money) efficiently and still see everything. 

Booking a budget safari in Tanzania is possible, and with a little careful thought and planning, you can still have the most perfect time in the beautiful natural surroundings.
