Price Range Descriptions

The costs below do not include international airfare, but do include domestic airfare.

Prices are Per Person per Day Based on Double Occupancy. Please multiply the price range that best suits you by the number of days you intend to travel. This includes your arrival and departure days.

For Single Travelers, note that costs per person per day are higher than noted here; these rates assume two people per room. Since in many cases single and double rooms cost exactly the same, the cost per person per day for the exactly the same itinerary for one person can be almost double the cost per person per day for 2 persons.


Luxury Price Trips:

Price per Person per Day $400.00-$600.00+


These itineraries use the first choice hotel at each location. These vacations are escorted by a Naturalist Guide throughout, with the exception of time spent at the beach. All activities and entrance fees are included. Surface transportation is private; flights are private charters. At the $450.00+ per person per day and above price category guests might meet important conservation personalities, fly in a helicopter to avoid long drives and stay at the best rooms available in locally owned hotels.

Sample Prices:
An 8 Day Itinerary in the Luxury Price Range has a cost of
$ 3,200 - $4,800+ per person
A 10 Day Itinerary in the Luxury Price Range has a cost of
$4,000- $6,000+ per person.

A Note On Trip Costs
The cost per person per day for a trip is greatly influenced by the number of people traveling together and the configuration of rooms. The more people traveling together in double or triple rooms the lower the cost per person per day. Since in many cases single and double rooms cost exactly the same, the cost per person per day for the exactly the same itinerary for one person can be almost double the cost per person per day for 2 persons
