2017 / 2018 BEST VALUE LUXURY AFRICAN SAFARI: If you like luxury but don’t want to pay for it this special is it. Travel before the end of March 2017 or between November 2017 and March 2018 and save close to 50% off high season rates at several of Africa’s most luxurious safari properties. We suggest traveling during March: Start with 3 to 4 nights in Cape Town where March weather is typically gorgeous. There are 3 or 4 luxury properties there that really stand out. Then fly to Botswana, the Switzerland of Africa with more lion and elephant than any country, for 6 to 9 nights. Visit 2 or 3 properties – try Africa’s #1 Mombo Camp in combination with Paul Allen’s Abu Elephant Camp or Kings Pool – ending at Victoria Falls for 2 nights. Here too there are several luxury options we can discuss. During March the Falls are hugely impressive. This is the trip we would take for maximum luxury, wildlife, fun, and safety. Costs vary depending upon exact properties chosen and number of nights but roughly speaking a trip that would cost US $16,000 per person during high season would cost closer to US $ 10,000 per person with our special pricing. Prices exclude international flights. Excludes the period December 20 – January 10.
