Looking at the price tag of the average African safari is enough to make most people think going on this bucket list adventure is only a pipe dream: $800 to $1,000 per person per night. Add in the cost of the flight from the U.S., and it becomes even more of an impossibility. But the good news is, more affordable options can be found. While they won’t fit into a shoestring budget, they are a lot more doable, at less than $300 a night, especially if you go in the off-season, generally considered between May and September – Africa’s winter is the opposite of North America’s, falling in June, July and August.
