Affordable safaris in Tanzania

If it is value-for-money that you’re after, then it would be best to travel outside of the peak season (June to September) because rates tend to be inflated due to the excess demand. Many of the lodges and camps – both on the safari circuits and scattered across the Spice Islands – offer generous off-season discounts with the ‘emerald season’ (AKA the rainy season) typically being characterised by negotiable accommodation rates and special packages where you might pay for three nights and stay for five (i.e. two nights ‘free’) or something similar.

The Spice Islands are an excellent choice at certain times of the year  I  Credit: Safari Blue
