Lodge Package vs. a la carte

Has anyone noticed that the prices lodges post for their packages don't really seem to offer any savings over what you would pay a la carte for the same services through the lodge? I'm not talking about booking yourself and using another provider for transfer, tours, etc., but rather booking the exact same services a la carte through the lodge you intend to stay with. Am I missing some hidden charge in the pricing, or are the packages merely intended to be more convenient, but not necessarily a savings over booking for your needs a la carte?

Think they're just more convenient, and if you do meal plans, you'll eat there instead of eating out...

Most breakdowns I have done are less than booking ala carte

ah-ha! I think I was not calculating the meal costs. Now the figures come out closer. Not a significant difference, but at least the package is not more costly. Thanks!
