Why Go on an All-Inclusive Safari

By Asilia Africa | 11 March 2024

The term "all-inclusive" often makes people raise an eyebrow, and for good reason – how frequently does it really live up to its name? That being said, if you are considering going on safari in Africa, you will certainly come across it a lot. All-inclusive is synonymous with Africa safaris, and, quite frankly, one of the best ways to experience the continent. So read on as we explore what it means to go on an all-inclusive African safari, what you can expect, and what it doesn’t mean!

What is Included in an All-inclusive Safari?

An all-inclusive African safari with Asilia enables you to fully immerse yourself in your surroundings, knowing all your needs have been taken care of.

Included in Your Asilia All-Inclusive Safari:

  • Luxurious accommodations: Experience the utmost in comfort and style with our award-winning camps, providing a perfect retreat after each day of exploration.
  • Daily game drives: Daily game drives are included, as are enchanting sunrise and sunset safaris that offer a unique way to view the wonders of African wildlife, including the iconic Great Wildebeest Migration and the renowned Big 5.
  • Some of our safari camps offer night game drives and walking safaris. These additional activities are included if you are staying in these camps on an all-inclusive basis.
  • Meals and drinks: All your meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks) as well as a curated selection of local and international drinks are included

Are All Safaris All-Inclusive?

The short answer is no. While most safari and tour operators do provide/sell all-inclusive safaris as an option, not all options are necessarily all-inclusive. Furthermore, the term "all-inclusive" can vary depending on the tour operator or safari package. Some safari packages may include accommodations, meals, game drives, and park fees in one comprehensive price, while others might have additional costs for certain activities, drinks, or tips. It's essential for you to carefully review the details of each safari package to understand what is included and whether it aligns with your preferences and budget.

What is Not Included?

While an all-inclusive safari package typically covers a range of services, there are certain expenses that may not be included. These often include:

  • International flights
  • Airport taxes
  • All meals and drinks not specified
  • Tips and gratuities
  • Items of a personal nature
  • Additional activities like hot air balloon safaris and cultural village visits

Additionally, costs associated with extra meals and snacks you may have from local cafes or restaurants outside of the lodge or during road transfers, may also fall outside of your package.

It's important that you thoroughly examine the details of each all-inclusive package and chat to your safari specialist travel agent for a clear understanding of what is and isn't covered in your package.

Why go on an all-inclusive safari in East Africa?

An all-inclusive safari in East Africa is one of the best ways to truly experience the continent. Whether your journey begins on grassy landscapes of the Masai Mara in Kenya or the endless savannahs of the Serengeti in Tanzania, both an all-inclusive Kenya safari and an all-inclusive Tanzania safari promise to wow you.

All-inclusive Tanzania Safari

Explore the renowned Ngorongoro Crater, officially recognized as one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders and home to one of the world's densest predator populations. Or head off the beaten track and discover the lesser-known Ruaha National Park- both beautifully serene and equally rich in predators making for a more intimate safari experience.

Each of our Tanzania safari destinations offers premier wildlife encounters with diverse adventure opportunities. To top your experience off, you can enjoy five-star accommodations and experience seamless logistics as you traverse the plains of East Africa. Round off your adventures with the comfort of five-star accommodations and the convenience of seamless logistics while exploring the expansive beauty of East Africa.

Renowned for its impeccable Migration scenes, Kenya is one of the greatest countries to go on safari in Africa. The grasslands of the Masai Mara and the Mara River see 1,5 million wildebeest passing through annually- a view best enjoyed from one of our primely situated lodges. Once you’ve witnessed that breathtaking phenomenon, there is  still much else to explore in Kenya.

Immerse yourself in Maasai culture with a village visit or venture to Ol Pejeta Conservancy, home to the last two northern white rhinos and regular sightings of the Big 5.

The key point to bear in mind is that what is or is not included in your package will depend on a range of factors. These may include: the time of year that you choose to book and travel, potential ongoing promotions during your booking or travel period, and the specific lodges or reserves where you plan to stay. Each of these elements has an impact on the overall travel cost, making it difficult to provide a generalisation about what expenses are or are not covered in an all-inclusive safari.
