To help provide insight into this new safari deals section of the website, I have decided to put together a six part blog post about how to best evaluate a safari deal:
Note - this is part of the ongoing series of blog posts put together by wildlife biologist Bill Given. I have posted this blog post while he is away on Safari in Tanzania.
This is part five of that six part blog post: Combining Separate Safari Deals
Combining Separate Safari Deals
Like a coalition of male lions, synergy can be achieved by combining different individual deals.

It can be advantageous to combine safari deals to utilize each special offer for the best camps that an operator has on their circuit rather than use only one operator's camps. This works particularly well with deals that have set special rates per camp rather than being dependent on a certain number of night stays. For example I often combine camps from the Kalahari Summer Special with camps from the 5 Rivers Special during Botswana’s green season. By mixing and matching from these two special deals there is great flexibility of camp choice to meet the diverse needs of different clients and there is much more on offer than if limited to one deal or the other.
Recommendation Combining Safari Deals
Remember - you don't have to be locked in to one tour operator's deals for your entire safari itinerary. Look around at different safari specials to see if you can combine them. I can match your safari objectives with the best deal - or deals - possible. Contact Me.
