  • Meals

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner are usually included in a typical safari package. However, we always recommend personally verifying inclusions by reading the 'What's included' section on the page of your preferred tour. 
  • Transportation

    You will usually embark on your tour inside a 4x4 game drive vehicle with a pop-up roof, making it ideal for spotting animals. Prices for renting a car vary a lot and can only be done in big cities like Arusha (about eight hours drive).
  • Park fees

    Before heading out to Serengeti National Park, make sure you have enough money set aside for your park admission! Park admission fees are set per person, per day, though occasionally tour groups can set less-expensive rates for their travellers.
  • Tipping

    Tipping is customary while on a safari, and the typical expected amount is set at approximately $10 USD per person, per day for guides, and $5 USD per person, per day for trackers. Depending on the tour you join, some food and accommodation may be included, but it’s always a good idea to bring a little extra cash just in case.
