Muir’s Tours offers
Muir’s Tours offers traditional 4WD camping safaris (budget to luxury) or with lodges for overnight stays as well as walking safaris with a Maasai guide, trekking in the highlands of the Ngorongoro area in Tanzania or near the Maasai Mara just inside Kenya. They also offer a host of African Safari’s and tours:
- 10 day Safari in Namibia. Visit Etosha National Park. Hike in the Namib Desert and trek in the Fish River Canyon.
- 24 day Southern Africa Budget Safari. Starting from Johannesburg in South Africa to Botswana, then Zambia and then Malawi plus Kruger National Park in South Africa, finishing off back in Johannesburg.
- 8 day Budget Safari – Samburu Reserve – Lake Baringo – Lake Nakuru – Maasai Mara in Kenya. Traveling by jeep and staying mostly at public campsites, this Safari is certainly low budget, but it is also great value.
- 15 day Serengeti/ Ngorongoro Safari plus Maasai Culture. As most tourists prefer to concentrate on the wildlife, very few people visit real Maasai villages. This tour takes visitors to the villages where the guides come from.
Budget African Safari for Less specializes in a wide range of African Safaris in South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya ranging from a 5 day Mara Nakuru Adventure Safari in Kenya to a 17 Day Kilimanjaro and Serengeti Safari in Tanzania. Some of their specials are:
- 13 Day Migration Safari, Tanzania
- 11 Day Cape Town/ Winelands/ Singita
- 11 Day Malaria Free. Only in South Africa
- 12 Days Kenya Family Lodge Safari
Accommodation in Game Parks in Africa
Most of the National Parks and Game Reserves in Africa have good, safe accommodation and campsites – not swanky Game Lodge; tented safari or resort-type accommodation- but standard stuff – great for budget travelers and outdoors types. Kruger National Park has a good mix of both luxury lodges and budget self-catering family-style camps.
Self- driving safari holidays are fine and perfectly safe in Southern Africa, Namibia and Botswana. However, one could miss out on the early morning or late afternoon/evening game drives with experienced guides when you’re not part of a group or booked into a lodge or hotel that offers that service. One can often book them independently or join up with a group, ask around.
Travelers who do enough research will find the Budget African Safari that is perfect for their pocket and tastes.
