“The more travelers we have on a group safari the lower our operating costs per traveler because some of these operating costs are shared; we use scaled pricing to pass these savings onto our customers."

Odyssey Safaris is offering affordable group safaris to Kenya for travelers looking to avoid rising prices in 2011 and 2012. Kenya and Tanzania have both recently raised park fees and rising gas prices have impacted travel prices negatively. In addition, rising inflation has added to the pressures on tour operators and accommodation providers; all of which is reflected in the prices paid by travel consumers.

“Our affordable group safaris will allow travelers to stretch their travel dollar in a way they haven't been able to for some time,” Managing Director Mark Cahill said. “Group safaris offer substantial savings for the safari traveler and we hope to provide more value with our Kenya safaris than consumers can find elsewhere.”

This means substantial savings for travelers who book a group safari with Odyssey Safaris. Not only will your price not increase if you book early, but you can travel longer or save substantially versus a private safari.

Odyssey Safaris is offering and 8 day 7 night safari with the following safari itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive and overnight Nairobi.
Day 2-3: Amboseli National Park.
Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park.
Day 5: Lake Naivasha.

Prices for this safari are all inclusive and scaled based on the number of travelers on the tour.

“The more travelers we have on a group safari the lower our operating costs per traveler because some of these operating costs are shared; we use scaled pricing to pass these savings onto our customers. The first travelers who sign up for this safari will expect to pay one price, but as additional travelers sign up they will pay a lesser price when full payment is due ,” said Safari Operations Director Eliud Karimi said.

Prices (example January 8 departure 2012 per person sharing)
2 people on tour: $3,300
6 people on tour: $2,800
12 people on tour: $2,650

“Many clients forget to ask about game drives before booking a safari and don't realize they will only game drive for 1 or 2 hours in the morning and the same in the evening,” Safari Operations Director Eliud Karimi said. “If a safari company doesn't tell you they offer unlimited game drives they probably don't and that means a lot of time at the lodge or paying extra for more game drives.”
