What is the Difference Between Safari And Tour

What is the Difference Between Safari And Tour

The words ‘safari’ and ‘tour’, are in most cases used together. To understand the differences between the two, we define them as the follows;

What is a Tour?

Tours offer a broader exploration of Africa beyond intensive game-viewing experiences typically associated with safaris. For instance, our 18 Days Ultimate Uganda Safari or 7 Days Chimpanzee & Gorilla Trekking, provides a comprehensive overview of diverse landscapes and cultures. Affordability is a key advantage of tours, as they can involve group travel (typically 12 to 16 people) and accommodations are not exclusively within wildlife areas each night. This makes tours particularly appealing for first-time African travelers seeking a varied experience encompassing wildlife observation, scenic vistas, and cultural immersion. By embarking on a tour, travelers can access a wide range of experiences while benefiting from the camaraderie of group travel and the guidance of knowledgeable tour leaders, making it an ideal choice for those eager to explore Africa’s richness in a multifaceted and cost-effective manner.

What is a Safari?

Samburu-National-Reserve

A safari entails spending consecutive days, often weeks, immersed in game-viewing activities. Each day typically features morning and afternoon game drives, allowing guests to observe and photograph Africa’s wildlife. To facilitate these experiences, safaris are conducted within designated wildlife areas such as national parks, game reserves, or private conservancies.

However, indulging in a safari experience tends to be more costly compared to tours. Entry fees are required for access to national parks and game reserves; for instance, entering the Masai Mara Game Reserve incurs a daily fee of US$80 per person. Additionally, accommodation, transportation, and guide services contribute to the overall expense.

Safari vehicles vary depending on the destination, with options ranging from closed 4WD vehicles to open-sided 4WD vehicles, tailored to suit the terrain and wildlife viewing preferences of each location.
