Need advice on safari

Hi all, I found a pre-bookable safari which costs $70 each (2 adults) and seems to include everything. Problem is they want payment up front via credit card and as mine was recently phished after using it online I have had to abandon that idea.

Not sure if it was OTT expensive as after hours of searching I still can't figure out the current proces are if you hire someone at the gate.

We will be there in February 2012. Any advice on costs/tips on hiring once we arrive (by car/driver) would be fabulous.

Well i was there 4 weeks ago for the christmas time... it cost me Rs. 3500 for the jeep and and 1000+ for 2 (I'm a local). But its something close to Rs. 5200 for 2 foreigners. well in those terms.. its likely to cost you about $80 for 2. usually you give a tip to the guide and driver. all depends on whether you are happy with the service? i gave them 500 each. I'm a local.. may be you can give them little more ;)
