Tanzania budget safari



We are a couple travelling to Tanzania in October  first week. I wanted to know if we can reach Arusha and then book our safari trip. Because all the quotes I have received now are high priced. Upon reaching Arusha we can check various tour operators.

Is there a possibility that there will be no accommodation available if we book last minute at this time of the year?

We want to do a 4-5 day trip in northern circuit. Can you recommend any itinerary or any place not to miss.

Any recommended tour operators?

  1. Budget camping safari at least two day before safari and budget safari lodge or tents need booking could be tented camp combine with lodge that is fine

    October is good time for safari and it dry season good for safari experience as easy drive in remote access.

    • Day1.Arusha -Tarangire national park overnight at ospuko lodge or maramboi tented.
    • Day.2Tarangire-serengeti national park overnight at katikati or kiota camp or mbugani camp
    • Day3 Serengeti explore full day
    • Day4.Serengeti haft day drive to ngorongoro crater overnight at wildlife lodge or rhino lodge or sopa
    • Day5.ngorongoro crater tour afternoon drive to Arusha.
  2. Alphadean tours and safaris

    Depending on your location the tour operators might be expensive, recommend east African based tour operators their prices are more favourable. You can also wait to arrive in Arusha and check various tour operators, although it’s quite convenient to book beforehand chances are you will get the same offers or close.

    Accommodations are not going to be fully booked, you can miss availability, this happens normally during the peak season. October tends to be less crowded.

    For a Northern circuit, don’t miss the Serengeti which plays host to the wildebeest migration is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in the world, whilst safari on the Ngorongoro floor of the extinct volcano at Ngorongoro is a game viewing environment that has no equal. Away from the tourist hotspots, quieter parks such as  Tarangire National Park offers superb for game viewing yet often overlooked to their more famous neighbours. The Rift Valley Lakes of Eyasi and Natron are the home of Hadzabe tribes and the breeding grounds for the largest flocks of flamingo on earth. For many people, a Northern Tanzanian safari is the very best safari of all.

    Hey, it will make it so much cheaper  if you get here find an affordable hotel and take your time finding a company with a group to join by then. Unless you want to have a private safari then you got lots of options.

    Hello! Its likely to get cheaper if you get a group to join,however with these unprecedented times might be another challenge. I know of a few companies that run group safaris, you can try and enquire from them. Kilele Afrika Ltd.
