Cost of this trip

From To Cost


  • The prices shown are per person sharing; call us for single person supplements.
  • It is very easy to change the duration of this trip by a few days, either staying longer at the safari camps, or shortening it by one or two days. Contact us to discuss the options.
  • All travellers entering South Africa on their way to or from Zambia will be asked to produce a Yellow Fever Certificate (unless in possession of a valid waiver certificate). This includes in-transit passengers as well as those staying overnight in South Africa. If you are visiting Zambia and passing through South Africa please make sure that you have been vaccinated against Yellow Fever and that you travel with all your documentation. For travellers flying direct to and from Zambia as in this Nile Monitor Safari itinerary, it is not a requirement to have the vaccination. However it is still recommend in case of a medical emergency and you need to be evacuated to South Africa. Please contact your GP or nearest Travel Clinic for more information.
