6 Days Tanzania Budget Safari

6 Days Tanzania Budget Safari

Package Overview

Budget safari is one of the most popular safari categories in Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit which includes the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and the National Parks of Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha, and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Each park has its own diverse habitat and their proximity to each other allows for a satisfying safari experience in a relatively short period. A budget safari can range from a camping tour where you are expected to pitch your individual tent and help with the cooking to an established camp with a private campsite, walk-in canvas tents, uniformed waiters, and portable shower and toilet facilities. You can also be accommodated in the simple hotels and lodges and enjoy the available amenities at relatively cheaper tariffs. The latter is our preferred way to accommodate our guests in this safari category.
