It is usually recommended on here to get quotes from more than one tour operator when planning a safari. When asking several tour companies to quote on a specific safari, do you normally get just one figure, the grand total, as the quote? Is it OK to ask the tour company to provide a detailed cost break down such as how many $'s for each camp, each transfer, each pre or post hotel night,etc.? Is this amount of detail normally requested and do the tour operators willingly supply it?
I am not talking about a detailed itinerary, of course you have to have that, I am talking about the details of the cost which the operator has to have to add up to get the total cost.
