The Great migration settles here usually after the start of the rains in mid or late November and stays up to April. Among the reasons is because of water and pasture. Why big herds? Wildebeest and Zebras tend to form larger aggregations when on the plains, for safety in numbers. After Lunch takes time to relax at the lodge for the hot part of the day.

Safari Pricing Explained

Why is my safari more expensive with less people in the group?

Safaris are a mixture of fixed costs for the tour company (JAfrica)  ie staff, vehicle, food, and external costs which come in the shape of accommodation and park fees etc.

When pricing a safari we divide our fixed cost by the number of people in the safari truck to work out a cost per PAX, then we add on the accomodation and park fees.

This means that the fixed costs are shared by the people travelling, so the more peole in the group, the less the individual is required to pay. If you have any quieries regarding this or anything else about your safari trip to Africa please feel free to contact us.

Please call or email for child pricing, depending on the numbers in your group we can negotiate better room rates with the lodges.
