Overview

African Budget Safaris provides budget travel advice and a selection of budget safaris and overland tours that stretch from Cape Town to Ethiopia. Our aim is to be a one-stop online shop for the African budget traveller. Our team is constantly road-testing the trips the best way we know how - by going on them to see for ourselves what type of experience we are offering. In terms of the tours we carry, we work with a selection of established budget, mid-range and overland operators to present the broadest available selection of online travel options for trips within the African sub-continent. Our mission is to use our industry buying power and low operational costs to offer trips at prices that nearly always come out cheaper than booking directly with the operator. Please do put us to the test on this. We are able to give advice on the strengths and weaknesses of the various operators and available travel options. Tell us your preferences and we'll do our level best to match you to the right trip, with accommodation, destinations, transportation and travel companions that are a good fit for your travel style.
