Most people that I speak to assume that a safari holiday costs the earth and it is true that there are some fantastic luxury holidays that are very expensive, just like any other luxry holiday anywhere else, but that does not mean that every safari holiday has to be expensive.

It is important to realise that a safari to any part of Africa is never going to be as cheap as a budget holiday to the Costa del Sol, but if you know where to look and/or are prepared to sacrifice a few creature comforts you can get some really good deals that are very affordable and go on a safari every bit as good and sometimes even more authentic than the luxury 5 star options.
