Book your reservation as soon as possible
We suggest booking your plane tickets, tours and hotels about a year in advance to take advantage of the lowest prices. Alternatively, you can find some VERY last minute (i.e. book then leave the same week deals), but most people can’t travel on a whim like that. However in general, the longer you wait as it gets closer to the time of your travel, the more expensive it’ll get. Not to mention, you’ll run out of options of cheaper hotels and tours that have been booked up by other tourists, leaving you no choice but to go with more expensive vendors and accommodations. Cheap traveling, especially in Africa, is a long-term plan.
