Average Cost of Safaris

Hello,

I've been doing a lot of research online and I was wondering what I should expect to pay for 2 of us for a 5 day safari. I have been quoted 2500 usd for a 5 day package that includes Lake Nakuru, Lake Navasha and Masai Mara. Is this reasonable?

Thanks

Depends when you are going, where you are staying and if you are flying or driving. Its impossible to say if this is reasonable with so little information.

Avg price per night per person to stay at said lodges is apprx. $190-250. That comes to $2000 for accoommodation fro 4 nights. $2500 sounds like a fair price taking into consideration transport, Full board accomm & game park entry fees.

Since you have a choice of lodgs to stay, go for Lake Naivasha SOpa Lodge, Lake Nakuru Lodge & SOpa Masai Mara Lodge. Much, much better lodges than other options...

With the mentioned lodges, the cost will range there but for me we went for a six days safari and paid 2325 USD per person, also it depends with the type of companies you are using...some tend to be pocket friendly while others are very expensive.
