Small Group Budget Safaris

Our small group budget safaris allow you to have an intimate experience with nature while traversing through Africa’s beautiful regions in custom 4×4 vehicles. Depending on the trip, the group sizes range from 2 to 16 travellers, semi-participation is required on most of the tours. This will involve setting up your tent (with assistance from our guides), helping with breakfasts, lunches and dinners and generally keeping the campsite tidy and making sure you only leave your footprints and no litter.

A small group allows you the space to stretch out and get to know your fellow travellers. The ambiance is more relaxed and peaceful, allowing you to hear the sounds of the animals you are viewing. You can also enjoy a closer interaction with the animals. The tours are generally reasonably priced, allowing the budget traveller the opportunity to still get the most out of the trip. You will find that you interact more closely with the guides by getting to know them and assisting them around the campsite. By getting involved you will have a true experience of Mother Nature and get away from the routine and monotony that everyday life can sometimes offer.

The small group tours are great for single people because you can get to know your other fellow travellers when you assist with cooking, or just sit around the camp fire at night. Many travellers make friends on these tours that last a lifetime!
