As you opt for an African safari, most times you are tempted to wait for the period to approach and then book the safari however, we advise that you always make your safari bookings way in advance and here some of the reasons why you should book you safari in advance.
- Variety of options
When you book your safari in advance you will have a chance to have a variety of options for safari activities, accommodation facilities, dates etc. Everything is still available so you have the opportunity to choose from the line of options unlike in the last minute booking where you have to go with what’s available.
- Great deals

Well booking in advance can get you great deals on your safari, because there is no competition for services you can get a discount easily and also remember you may the first person to book with a facility or for a safari program so you chances of getting discounts still are high.
The other thing is there are usual discounts for people who book safaris in advance which means even without bargaining you will still have a great deal at the end of the day.
- Instalment payment plan
When you book you safari a few days to the safari you are always required to make either 90% of payments of full payments; as you understand its last minute so there is no room to wait. However when you book in advance, you have a chance to pay in instalments because the safari is far ahead you can break down the payments and pay them slowly until the time of the lockdown. This reduces the pressure on you to have all the money at once before you book a safari.
Booking your safari in advance will give and the tour consultant/operator to pay attention to all the details of the safari and make sure nothing is left uncovered for. This is because there is ample time to go over all your safari needs, itinerary and everything. Yet booking so close to the safari may not give you this chance.
