Safari booking

My girlfriend and I are spending two weeks at Southern Palms in August. We would like to do a 2 or 3 day safari, and are wondering if it is better to book these before you go, or not. We would rather stay in the lodges than camp, and are wondering if these get booked up, and if so, how quickly?

Many thanks :-)

book them there, there's couple of reputable firms up the road from the hotel - they don't charge the same commission as the hotel and are therefore, cheaper.

If you can afford it, use the camps, they are excellent and it will be something you remember for the rest of your life.

Hi Elpedro,

You could book your trip either when down there, but early booking makes the Tour leader have enough time to do reservation since not all times the lodges or camps are free. Camping safari would be nice.

Try to check out with the Tour companies being recomended on the forum like www.micssafaris.com, DM don't know his site.

Sometimes they are cheaper on the web site than in the office.

All the best.

Hi there

We;re off to SP in July and I have booked our Masai Mara safari with mics safaris. (£325 each for 2 days one night by plane at Governors) All done via email, all very professional. Deposit paid by bank transfer the rest paid when we get their. We have also booked our Dolphin Dhow in advance.

I think this is a very busy time of the year, and I'd rather know it was all booked and sorted.

Hope that helps.
