Kenya Best Price Guarantee!

Africa Point is so certain that we can offer you the very best price on your Kenya safari that they are willing to pay you if you can find a better deal! Yes, that’s right! If you can find a better quote on any safari you have booked with Africa Point within 7 calendar days of booking we will not only match the price, but also give you a US$50 travel voucher to use as you wish.


In order for us to give you this Best Price Guarantee there are a few things you have to bear in mind, so that you do not fall into the trap of comparing apples and potatoes! Here is what to look out for when you compare quotes:


  • Season: Your travel dates can make a big difference to the total price of your safari. For example, it will cost a lot more to visit the Maasai Mara during the annual Migration (July to September) than it will to visit at another time of year. Make sure the travel dates match exactly the ones you booked!
  • Camps and Lodges: Safari camps and lodges vary from basic to over-the-top luxury. Although two camps may look quite similar when you visit their websites, the standard of accommodation could be very different.When comparing quotes you need to make sure that you will be booked into the same lodge.
  • Transport: Will you be driven to the National Park or are you choosing to save time by flying in? Have you asked for a safari van or a 4x4? What about airport transfers? Are these included or do you have to haile down a taxi on arrival? These things can make a big difference to your quote.
  • Inclusions and Exclusions: This is probably the most important list to check. Some Camps and Lodges are Fully Inclusive while others may offer Full Board, but exclude all drinks. Likewise, some quotes may include exclusive-use game-viewing vehicles for your family or group while others may not. Other safari enhancements such as Cultural visits, Hot-air Balloon excursions and Bush Breakfasts, for instance, may be included on one quote but not the other.

In a nutshell: The new Africa Point Best Price Guarantee gives you the peace of mind to book your next Kenya safari with confidence. Once you have booked you have the assurance that if you do find a cheaper (identical!!) quotation withing 7 calendar days, we will match the price and reward you by adding a $50 travel voucher to spend on anything you like.
