In our current economic climate I have lots of people enquiring about safari deals. There are quite a number of them popping up in every safari country, and some are very good. Due the heightened interest I am going to endeavor to post the best deals that I have received listed by country over the next few blog posts and then I will continue to post new deals as I receive them. Sign up for our monthly newsletter as another way to keep current on special offers. Many of the deals coming from safari operators are not including the high season so I am developing a few of my own deals that are specifically offered by The Wild Source only, encompassing some of my favorite properties throughout the prime season for wildlife viewing. The following are current deals offered in Botswana:
- Kalahari Summer Special remains one of the best, travel during December through March 2009 and the rate is $290 per person per night and there is no single supplement on accommodation. This special includes many camps including Mapula Lodge, Grassland Bushman Lodge, Delta Camp, and others.
- The Wild Source exclusive Footsteps Special. For travel from April through November to include all of the high season and shoulder seasons we will discount all accommodation in Footsteps in Africa camps by 10% for any itinerary that includes six nights or more in Footsteps camps, including the new Sankuyo Plains Camp and Deception Valley Lodge.
- 5 Rivers special continues for travel during December through March and the rate is $315 per person per night with no single supplement on accommodation. This special includes Kwara, Lebala, Lagoon, and the new camps Nxai Pan and Tau Pan once they open as well as Deception Valley Lodge.
- The Wild Source exclusive Kwando Special. For travel during the high season of June through October we will discount all accommodation in Kwando camps by 10% for any itinerary that includes six nights or more in a combination of Kwara, Little Kwara, Lagoon, and Lebala Camps. Additionally, with 6 nights between any of the aforementioned camps we will offer nights at the new Nxai Pan and Tau Pan camps for a discounted $315 per person per night (regular rack rate is $480).
