My recent blog post on safari special offers in Botswana has already received a lot of interest. It is clear that knowing the deals and special offers in the current economic climate is critical and I will continue to post deals as they become available on this blog. Signing up for our monthly newsletter: The Roar is another way to keep current on special offers. There are some outstanding deals in Tanzania right now and many of them do include the prime times and locations for viewing the migration. Normally far in advance planning is recommended during popular times such as the February calving season but even at this late date I am seeing some availability and if you are flexible enough to plan a trip with short lead time before your departure there are sensational last minute safari deals, such as 50% off when booking within 30 days of travel.
