After we determined a travel agency with broad experience in Africa Safari travel would be the best choice, the next big questions were how long and where?
We did a lot of soul searching. We have two dogs that needed to be boarded. A big expense. I wasn’t confident I could do a 18 day adventure. And the cost: $800 to $1,000 per person per night: that’s currently the average price of an African safari. Much more than we felt we could afford – even for the trip of a lifetime. Once we had a number in mind that we could spend, we started looking at itineraries.
That took us to Kenya as a destination. It has a variety of national parks that have a excellent reputation among safari-goers.
It’s the quality of Kenya’s parks and reserves that make Kenya the most popular safari destination in Africa. Safaris in Kenya are cheaper than anywhere else in Africa, but you can also enjoy an exclusive experience.
Cheaper. I liked the sound of that. Once we narrowed it down to Kenya, the shopping for a tour agency became a matter of price and schedule.
We found a trip that suited us at Gate 1 Travel. As we browsed the details we discovered our neighbors had used Gate 1 for a trip to Machu Picchu. They raved about their trip – and the service of Gate 1. And they had a referral code that gave us a discount.
We chose the 10 day Kenya Safari Exploration.
