safari, difference in price,

Hi, I have emailed two safari companies, both have ansered our query, both sound very good, however one is £190 more expensive than the other, staying in the same lodge. Do some companies charge just for staying in the hotel, but not for the meals, where another will charge for the meals? or can anyone explain where the difference might be?

Are you comparing apples with apples? Both private, same type of vehicle, both full board, inclusive of KWS fees, same game drives, same pick up/drop off time, any freebies? Lodges normally work on full board. Are both companies recommended? No one likes paying over the odds but on the other hand why's the other option so much cheaper? Cheapest isn't always best. Maybe get a third price for peace of mind?

usually a part of the offers should be, what is in the price included and what not. Maybe some have better rooms (some lodges are offering different types) or extras like a bushwalk, bushdinner or sundowner.

So best way to find out where the difference is or has its reason - ask for detailed informations about this.
