Budget Safari Kenya &Tanzania and Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro

Hi there I am planning on going to Kenya in Dec and am interested in seeing and doing as much as possible on a budget of $2,000, Could anyone advise me on a safari that incorporates both Kenya and Tanzania and also climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. I am a female traveler who will be travelling by myself. I would like to fit in as much as possible in roughly 12 nights. I am also open to any other suggestions people may have.

This is a very tall order Aine. Kili alone will cost you more than USD$1000 for the seven-day climb. Park entrance fees are typically $50 to $100 per day per person, and that doesn't count transport and overnights. Bottom-line group wildlife-watching safaris start from around USD$200 per person per day, but decent ones start from around $250-300 pppd.

$2000 for 12 night is a feasible backpacker budget, but it's not quite enough to do the level of exploration you want (ie for that money you'd have to drop Kili and assume only a few days of safaring You'll also need something like $1500-plus for your flight.

Sorry not to be the bearer of good news. Good luck planning anyway!

Contact my friend ( a guide who became a friend I made on a safari, who I have now used twice) Francis of Thiga Safari and Summit. Tell him what you want, he may be able to help.
