There are few bigger ticket items than African safaris. And for a 10-day one, that includes a good amount of variety, and airfare from the US, $6000 would not be an uncommon price.
Which is why I was intrigued when I heard from specialist 2Afrika that it would be offering a full fortnight long safari, to the Masaii Mara (3 nights), the Shaba National Reserve (2 nights), Lake Nakuru (1 night) and an opening night in Nairobi, for just $2685. That price, to make it clear, includes airfare via KLM from New York City to Nairobi, as well as all land transfers, almost all meals, guides and accommodations. In all, the participants will take part in 12 game viewing drives.
Its a limited deal, available for just one departure date (May 7) but still, such a value, that I wanted to mention it here. For more information, click on the link above. The offer must be booked by the end of February.
