For the most part, safaris are a costly kind of vacation. But as with any other type of travel, you can tailor your safari to suit your personal budget. The length of your safari will affect its cost although you may want to cut your trip short to save cash, the longer you stay, the less you will probably pay on a per-night basis.
If you’re looking for luxury digs (think private butler or plunge pool) on your safari (or even just hot water and a comfy bed), prepare to pay more. Budget-minded adventurers should seek self-drive or overland safaris (see below) as opposed to all-inclusive package tours—but be prepared to camp in tents or navigate a 4×4 through the African bush.
If you’re traveling alone, you’ll probably have to pay a single supplement, as most package pricing is based on double occupancy. A luxury safari offered by a well-known tour operator typically costs thousands (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars per person, per week, with all-inclusive prices covering tours, food, drinks, and excursions. Fully catered luxury packages offer travellers the comforts of home in the wilderness. Accommodations range from air-conditioned suites to stylish tents.

I have had the opportunity and good fortune to visit Kenya on safari many times and have always used White Plains Tours for all my trips. They are courteous, professional, knowledgeable and most of all, a whole lot of fun! Have seen all the keystone wildlife species that beautiful Kenya has to offer and White Plains has made it all happen from flights, transfers, accommodation, tours, guides and special excursions if you wish! A very special shout out to Joseph, the owner manager and occasional guide, and to Francis, head guide - they are a second family and lifelong friends. Thank you so much and see you again soon we hope!
I've used White Plains Tours for all of my holiday travels in Kenya. The team's professionalism and dedication to what they do is commendable. During my numerous trips with White Plains, I've done Masai Mara Tours and watched the magical Wildebeest Migration 4 times, visited Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru National Park and others to name but a few. I've also done various trips to coastal towns of Mombasa, Malindi, Watamu and Zanzibar. My transfers to and from the airport have always been smoothly handled. I would highly recommend White Plains Tours for all of your African Tours and travels needs.Kudos to the whole team at White Plains!..
