Kenya and Tanzania, both great safari options in East Africa, are destinations I have long wanted to visit. And I’m not alone. Many of you have asked about these places too. So, I invited Mark Wiens of Migrationology to share his experience and tips on how to travel around this region, see animals, and not spend a ton of money!

Few activities make it to the top of bucket lists like safaris. It’s an experience sought after by people all around the world, a once in a lifetime chance to come face to face with our planet’s most majestic and beautiful animals.

An African safari is a thrilling chance to see wild animals going about their daily lives in their natural habitat, which is why they’re one of the most popular activities on the continent.

East Africa (specifically Kenya and Tanzania) has a huge variety of national parks that offer adventurous opportunities to see wildlife up close.

But the industry is not normally well suited to long-term travelers on a tight budget. The East African safari generally caters to luxury tourists who want a quick vacation and can pre-book an all-inclusive package trip without thinking too much about the cost.

A lot of research and planning goes into getting a safari fully arranged, deciding what game reserve to visit, and finding transportation and accommodation.

Fortunately, there are several ways to save money on an African safari. In this post, I’ll show you how to plan an amazing safari in East Africa without breaking the bank!
