New York, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Odyssey Safaris is giving travelers a chance to avoid price increases by offering their 2012 safaris at 2011 prices for those who book by Nov. 1st. With Kenya raising park entry fees in 2012 and Tanzania raising them last year along with higher prices for almost everything, it is expected that 2012 will bring record prices.
According to eTurboNews: “Tourism key players say that Tanzania's safari package surcharges will range between 15% to 20% , depending on the length of the trip due to increases in fuel prices and operating expenses. By any standard, the price of a Kenya safari will do the same and prices will increase between 15 to 20% come October of 2011."
This means substantial savings for Odyssey Safaris travelers who lock in their safari price now before accommodation and fuel providers raise their prices. This will also allow clients to lock in airfare at the earliest possible date for additional savings.
Odyssey Safaris is a safari boutique that designs a personalized safari around the client's wishes.
"Our guides have 20 years' travel experience throughout east Africa," Managing Director Mark Cahill said. "This is specialty travel, where one safari does not work for every client. We will work with you to custom design a private, personalized, safe Africa safari experience with trips to some of the most spectacular national parks and reserves in east Africa. You go where you want to go, see what you want to see and do what you want to do in a private vehicle with your very own English-speaking naturalist guide."
Travelers may view Kenya Safaris and Tanzania Safaris on Odyssey Safaris east Africa safari website. These safaris serve as an example and clients can purchase them as advertised or change or add options on every safari tour. Because its safaris are not pre-packaged, Odyssey Safaris does not include international airfare in its prices, but can assist with travel arrangements.
In addition to customizing their safaris, Odyssey Safaris also includes:
Private transport in a luxury 4x4 safari vehicle
Guaranteed window seat
All national park, reserve, and conservation fees
Unlimited game drives
All transportation including airport transfers
Complimentary bottled water daily
Complimentary enrollment emergency air evacuation service
Services of an English speaking driver/guide
“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.”
