Safari Seasons & Quotations


Kenya is a wonderful country to visit any time of the year. 

Below is a general guideline for budgeting of a safari in the country.  Safari pricing seasons include
(a) peak: February, July – October
(b) High: January, March, June, November – December 22nd
(c) Low: April & May
(d) Christmas/New Year: December 23rd to January 02nd. 

Accommodation rates/pricing go by seasons, which are based on anticipated volumes, with High being the average, peak and Chrismas/New Year being premium while in low, some discounts are offered. 

Some of the up-market Camps and Lodges close in the Low season months (April and May, which is the long rains season) – and a few in November (short rains season) as well. 

Costs of most of the other services – transport, park fees etc remain the same all year round. 

Prices are subject to statutory increases, exchange rate flactuations and fuel surcharges.


Generally, Concorde Safaris will quote for a safari based on your preferred itinerary and incorporating any practical changes that we may propose, to make it feasible and exciting.  The quote will include various safari elements - accommodation, meals, transport, excursions and sightseeing. 

In the quotation, we may also include entrance fees to the various National Parks and Reserves that you may visit (on average US$ 40-US$60 per person/day) or show these separately for you to pay direct in cash. 

Transport on safari may be by road, in our customized 4x4 8-seater safari minibus with an experienced driver/guide (or a 4x4 Landcruiser/Landrover at a supplement).  Transport may also be by schedule flights which link all the various Parks/Reserves and the cities.  If transport is by schedule flights, then game drives in the Parks/Reserves would be in Lodge/Camp based vehicles, with window-seats guaranteed.
On average, during the High Season:
a) A safari by road to a standard/superior Lodge/Camp would cost from US$ 180 per person/night (while sharing a room), with all meals included as well as transport (road safari and game drives) based on 4 persons travelling.

b) A safari by flight for recommended minimum 2 nights to a deluxe Lodge/Camp would cost from US$ 360 per person/night, with all meals included, schedule flight airfare and game drives in Camp/Lodge vehicle.   

c) A safari by flight, for 2 nights, to a boutique luxury lodge/camp would cost from US$ 600 per person/night, with all meals and selected alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks included, schedule flight airfare and game drives and some other game activities in Camp/Lodge vehicle.  
These rates are just a general guideline and are exclusive of Park/Reserve/Conservation Areas Entrance fees. The final tour cost would depend on a number of other factors, including number of persons, number of days, safari routing, market rates or any special offers for specific accommodation units at the time of booking etc. 

Children (2 – 12 years) get from 50% discount on accommodation (when sharing room with 2 adults) as well as on some of the other services.  Some Lodges/Camps do not allow children under certain ages, yet others accommodate children but restrict them on some game activities. 

Residents and citizens of East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi) qualify for special ‘Resident Rates’ for accommodation and in some cases, Park entrance fees as well.
