Accommodation in Masai Mara National Reserve
Visitors should be aware that the cost of a safari in Masai Mara is determined by the type of accommodation facility in which they stay. There are several accommodation options in Masai Mara National Reserve, ranging from budget-friendly to luxurious.
Visitors can get away with paying $90-$150 per person per day if you go to a low-cost camp during the off-season. At the same time, a mid-range lodge will cost between $180 and $250, while a luxury camp would cost more than $300. These rates will soon double during peak season, and additional factors such as method of transportation and length of stay will increase the cost. Camping or cheap tented campgrounds are good options if you’re on a tight budget. Cottages and Villas are also available for a low-cost Safari rate of $150 per person, each day.
Safari vacations in the middle level accommodation facilities such as lodges and hotels cost between $ 250 and $350 per person each night. Kenya’s mid-luxury safari tours strike the ideal blend between affordability and the classic African safari experience of the 1920s. Kenya safari packages in luxury and super luxury come with all the bells and whistles, but depending on the season, they can cost anywhere from $450 to $750 per person.
