Many people think that you cannot go on a wildlife or safari holiday on a budget, but there are many companies who specialise in this and will create an affordable holiday that offers you great experiences and allows you to visit some of the best locations across the world.
There are ways in which you can cut the cost of a wildlife or safari holiday such as booking a holiday which is designed for a group. This way the cost is split between many people allowing tour operators to be able to lower the price to individuals. Yes, you may not be getting one on one attention all the time, but often it is better to experience safari holidays with people who share the same interest and it can actually make for a better overall experience.
Find out when it is cheapest to travel, it may be that travelling out of the peak season will cut the price down of flights but still allow you to see a wide range of wildlife. You also do not have to spend the whole trip on a safari, why not book a holiday which includes a one or two day safari excursion giving you the best of both worlds and keeping the cost down.
