Lesser kudu safari: costs
|Departing on or after||Trip cost|
- Mwagusi closes during April and May.
- The prices shown are per person sharing; call us for single person supplements.
- The Tanzanian Government has recently passed a ‘Finance Act’ that adds a 18% VAT charge on all ‘tourism services,’ with immediate effect from July 1st 2016. Please be aware that the prices in these Trip ideas do not include these extra VAT costs. The additional fee typically equates to about $20USD per person per day.
- Like all our tailor-made safaris in Tanzania, this one is a sample itinerary and easy to adjust to your personal requirements. We will always organise a safari that matches what you want to do.
- Subject to availability at the camps, you can depart on your chosen itinerary on any day of the year.
Ideas for add-on trips:Adding a few days of beach relaxation to this safari is easy; we have lots of ideas! An easy addition would be a beach on Zanzibar, although for a quieter island, with great diving and snorkelling, consider our ideas for beach holidays on Mafia. Alternatively, continue your trip at a stunning private islands in northern Mozambique. Our beach holidays to Quirimbas Archipelago include some wonderfully remote and very beautiful private islands.
At the other end of the scale, for a very short addition, consider two or three days by the coast. Our trips to Ras Kutani include minimal travel as it's only an hour's drive (or 10 minutes' flight) south of Dar!
