Private safari

How much should you expect to pay for a private safari/guide

We're planning a bespoke trip into pongola with our own safari guide (2 nts), then he's driving us to Mozambique for diving and other activities. For all accommodation, meals included in pongola (not in Mozambique), fuel, gates costs etc we've been quote 30,000 rand for 2 adults.

Thinks it's lodge in pongola and tented accommodation in Mozambique.

Would appreciate peoples thoughts :)

I will leave it to those in the industry to address your question but I am interested to know one thing which could affect the pricing.

Is your guide a regular tourist guide or a trained safari guide? As in one that is a qualified ranger which you may be wanting for the safari portion, I am sure this would attract a higher fee.

Yes, he's a experienced freelance safari guide / ranger we met on a safari last year (not a tourist guide)

Not sure if you are asking us to comment on the price of your trip? If so, we would need more information (specific names of establishments), as accommodation could vary from basic to luxury and of course this would impact the cost of the trip.
