– “A Kenya holiday safari within your Budget.”

Where you spend each night on budget Maasai Mara safari can be just as important as what you do each day so it’s good to have a clear idea of what you’re expecting of your accommodation. Hotels in Maasai Mara and elsewhere range from affordable 3* properties to opulent 5* properties that may eat up a fair chunk of your budget but offer the best in luxury and comfort while camps offer cheaper rates. Choose accommodation that suits your safari budget.

To get the most out of your budget Maasai Mara safari it’s best to travel with a guide. A passionate, knowledgeable guide can provide you with invaluable information and will also be your driver and accompany you throughout your journey. We provide a knowledgeable, well experienced guide for all our Maasai Mara tours. Touring can be prohibitively expensive so where available you may wish to consider join-in tours, which not only keeps costs down but also gives you the opportunity to meet other travelers.

Other ways to make your budget Maasai Mara safari go further is to look at traveling in low season. The weather may not be at its best but there will always be something to see and something to do, usually without the crowds and with tour packages, hotel room rates slashed and everything much quiet.
